“We played solid in all three phases of the game,” said Bell County coach Dudley Hilton. “That’s one of the best things about this team is that we have so many athletes that can give us quality production on any unit of the team. We scored twice on defense, our offense is playing well and our special teams are playing well too.”

“The weather caused the game to be called at the half, but we put up 43 points in the first quarter and felt like we had the game in hand either way. I’m pleased with how well we are playing as a team. We continue to work hard and try to improve every day. We are going to get back to work and get prepared for a good Rockcastle County team this week. After three straight road games, it’s going to be good to be back at our place.”

With the victory, Bell County improved to 5-0 on the season. With the loss, McCreary County Central moved to 0-5 on the season as they continue to struggle. The Bobcats will be back in action on October 4 as they take on the Rockcastle County Rockets at Dudley Hilton field.
