Mayfield Makes it 14 Straight Against Tilghman
By Eric Chumbler

The domination by the Mayfield Cardinals over Paducah Tilghman in football continued on Friday night as Mayfield grabbed a 38-20 win over Tilghman in Tornado Alley. It's Mayfield's 14th consecutive win over Tilghman.

Paducah Tilghman would get on the scoreboard first as Cam Marshall found Jayden Freeman for a 61-yard touchdown reception to make it 7-0 Tilghman just over two minutes into the game.

However, Mayfield would immediately take over with a 21-0 run. Jayden Stinson tossed a 64-yard touchdown strike to Kade Neely to tie the game at 7 with just over 9:00 minutes left in the opening quarter. Then just two minutes later, the Cardinals strike again, this time it was Stinson to Alonzo Daneil for a 42-yard touchdown to make it 14-7 Mayfield with seven minutes left in the opening quarter. Then shortly before the end of the first quarter, Stinson would toss his 3rd touchdown of the night; this time to Ben Gloyd for 25 yards to make it 21-7 Mayfield.

Mayfield would strike quickly on the opening possession of the 2nd half as Kylan Galbreath scampered 33 yards for a touchdown to make it 28-14 Mayfield with 11 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

Tilghman would respond as Cam Marshall would score from four yards out to cut the Mayfield lead to 28-20 halfway through the 3rd quarter. Just two and a half minutes later, Mayfield would respond again. This time Stinson would find Diaz Perry for his fourth touchdown pass of the game to make it 35-20 Mayfield.

The Cardinals improve to 3-0 on the season and host McCracken County next week while Tilghman plays Graves County next week.

It was a record setting night for the McCracken County Mustangs as the Mustangs knocked down the Eagles 65-26 at Eagles Stadium Friday night.

The Mustangs combined for a whopping 607 yards of total offense, dominated by the ground game. McCracken County rushed for 448 yards Friday night, with junior running back Hunter Bradley accounting for 328 of those rushing yards on 28 carries and five touchdowns. The 448 total rushing yards and the 328 rushing yards by Bradley were both program records for McCracken County. The previous record for total offense in a single game also came against Graves County when the Mustangs put up 577 yards in a 63-30 McCracken County win in 2013.

The McCracken County defense would make the first big play of the game; stopping Graves County on 4th-and-10 on the McCracken County 25 yard line to give the Mustangs the football. McCracken County would then strike quickly, going 72 yards in five plays, capped off by a Hunter Bradley 4-yard touchdown to make it 7-0 Mustangs.

McCracken County would then recover the ensuing kickoff. After the McCracken County drive stalled at the 3-yard-line, Ben Schofield connected on a 20-yard field goal to make it 10-0 Mustangs with 4:24 left in the opening quarter.

Then just before the end of the 1st quarter, Jeremiah Hughes scampers from 33 yards out on a sweep to find the end zone and make it 17-0 McCracken County.

The Eagles would answer in the 2nd quarter as junior quarterback John Ben Brown threw a beautiful fade into the end zone on 4th-and-goal to connect with Kyler Madding for the 10-yard touchdown to make it 17-7 Mustangs with 5 minutes to go in the first half.

Elijah Wheat found Franklin Hayes for a 54 yard touchdown pass to increase the McCracken lead to 23-7 with 1:39 left in the first half. The Eagles would immediately respond, however. Cody Goatley marched down the field and finished off the drive with a two yard touchdown to make it 23-14 Eagles.

The 2nd half would be all McCracken County as the Mustangs outscored the Eagles 42-9.

McCracken County travels to Mayfield next week to take on the Cardinals at 7pm Friday. Graves County will host Paducah Tilghman on Friday at 7pm.
