    Thanks for making the trip and your input.

    PS - what happened to your knee? Hope you get better soon.


    Golfer - I also enjoyed your analysis. It was good seeing you at the game last night.


    Stats from the Independent:

    First Downs, Ash =17, JC =12

    Rushes-yards, Ash = 38-152, JC = 40-227

    Passing, Ash = 9-25-0, JC = 3-4-0

    Passing yards, Ash = 129, JC = 84

    Fumbles – lost, Ash = 4-0, JC = 3-2

    Had some scope work done on it on Thursday to clean out all those things that happen when you play football for about 15 years and run around in boots with a loaded ALICE pack on for years.

    Family Tradition did the driving, buddy Troy served as co-pilot and I sat in the back seat with ice on my knee. Might have had a doctored up Diet Coke or two to self medicate a bit. Don't believe in taking the oxycodone. The doctored up Diet Cokes work just as well and taste much better.

    It was a good trip and I enjoyed watching two good football teams play a very close and entertaining game.

    Probably the best game I've ever seen played on Eagle Field, and I go back to 1990 watching football there.
    Thanks for the update and glad it wasn't worse.

They seemed flat the first half--defense didn't play well, too many dropped balls (entire game) and too many incompleted passes. If they had played the first half like they did the second, they would have come home with a win. But, you also have to remember, there are a lot of 10th and 11th graders in the starting line-ups. On a different note--did anyone notice there was less music played over the loud speakers the second half???

    I'm sorry but how could you come out too confident or flat against a team that has pretty much owned you the past few years?

    I didn't say JC had won it did I? Might need to read one's post before commenting and degrading someone! My point is there are only four teams in the district, JC has to win next week and should wrap up number one. The only chance Ashland has to win it is Woodford to beat JC, Montgomery to beat JC, and Ashland beat Woodford and Montgomery. So it really is JC's district to lose.
