LLOYD Greenup County’s big lead didn’t stand up, but its defense did.

Down 14-0 at halftime, visiting Montgomery County rallied to force overtime on Friday night. But the Musketeers got the ball first in the extra session and scored on Quintan Farrow’s fourth-down 3-yard run, and Brady Clevenger and Noah Nichols teamed up to stop the Indians on fourth-and-goal to end it.

Farrow rushed for 146 yards on 22 carries. Auston Clarkson came down with three of Carson Wireman’s five completions for 62 yards.

Chase Adkins ran for a pair of short touchdowns in the first half — the second one with 15 seconds to go before intermission — to put the Musketeers (2-1) ahead by two scores at the break.

The game-ending tackle was one of 18 stops credited at least partially to Clevenger — six solo, 12 assisted.

Montgomery County is 0-3.

SALYERSVILLE The Bulldogs’ third quarter might have been almost worth waiting for.

Lawrence County won its first season opener for the first time under fifth-year coach Alan Short. The Bulldogs intercepted four Magoffin County passes and recovered a Hornets fumble.
