Letcher County hosted the Pike County Central Hawks in Friday night football action last week.
Letcher took the game over the game from the very beginning and didn’t take their foot off the gas until the very end. Quarterback, Jonah Little, only threw three passes in the game but took advantage of the looks that he was given. He would complete two or three passes and throw a 59-yard laser to his receiver, Daelyn Shepherd for a touchdown.
The Letcher County Cougars took over the ground game Friday night. The team would rush for 194 yards on the ground and punch in four touchdowns for the night. Running back, Keyante Miller, led the way for his team. Miller rushed for 100 yards on nine carry’s and punched in one touchdown.
On the defensive side of the ball, Garrett Howard would come up big for his Cougar squad. Howard totaled seven tackles on the night, two tackles for loss, and one sack on the quarterback.
Pike County Central continues to try to find their style and get back to the competitive level they have been a custom to over the years.
Letcher will travel to Hazard this Friday, looking to improve their record to 3-1 over a talented Hazard team.
Pike County Central will make their way to Clay County looking to bounce back from a rough two weeks of play and pick up a much needed win.
