Commodores Squeeze Past Breathitt County, 29-26

On Friday Night, the D&D Sports Network broadcast their first game at Perry Central since they have added the 14th Region to the coverage area. The Football gods didn’t make things easy for the D&D crew. A hellacious thunderstorm blew the broadcast crew’s tent off the roof of the press box, ultimately pushing kickoff back to 9:40 pm. Once the game got started we got to see one of the best football games of the early season, Breathitt County led by O-lineman Evan Miller would show why they are one of the best programs in the Mountain and Commodore quarterback Kizer Slone proved his critics wrong, showing why he is the 5th ranked quarterback in the Mountains.

In the end, the Commodores (2-2) were able to pick up a 29-26 win in a back and forth contest.

Slone guided the Commodore offense all night. He completed 8-of-15 passes for 166 yards while adding 2 carries for 2 yards and 2 rushing touchdowns.
