SPRINGFIELD Visiting Raceland compiled four rushing touchdowns and two defensive TDs to go along with Jake Heighton’s two scoring strikes in a 56-7 victory at Washington County on Saturday night.

The Rams’ Ethan Melvin took an interception 37 yards to the house to open the scoring, and Will Nichols rambled 35 miles to paydirt with a Commanders fumble for the first points of the second half.

Jules Farrow ran for 82 yards and a touchdown, and Noah Wallace, Conner Hughes and Heighton each chipped in TDs on the ground for Raceland (2-3).

Heighton threw for 156 yards and two scores — one each to Wallace and Parker Fannin. Wallace caught two passes for 53 yards.

Fleming Co. 7, Mason Co. 6

FLEMINGSBURG The host Panthers made a third-quarter touchdown and extra point stand up to knock off their border and district rivals for the eighth consecutive time.

After a Royals fumble set Fleming County up at the Mason County 13-yard line on the first possession of the second half, Zeke Conn rushed for a 4-yard TD and Justyn Haggerty kicked the extra point three minutes into the third quarter to give the Panthers (2-2, 2-0 Class 3A, District 6) the lead.

The Royals (2-2, 1-1 district) answered on Ashton Adams’s 8-yard pass to Isaac Marshall, but a botched snap on the ensuing extra point forced a failed pass.

Two more Mason County turnovers and a giveaway on downs in Fleming County territory helped prevent the Royals from scoring again.
