Williams returns to propel Cards past Rockets

By Keith Taylor

SHELBYVILLE – Ryan Williams returned and George Rogers Clark back on track.

 

Williams rushed for 216 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead the Cardinals to a 14-7 win over Shelby County here on Friday night.

 

The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Clark, which has an open date before taking on Scott County on Oct. 24 at Cardinal Stadium. Clark had lost its past two games after opening the season with four straight wins.

 

Williams, the state leader in rushing, sprained his ankle in last week’s 40-13 loss at Henry Clay, but came back in a flash, scoring on a 52-yard run on his fourth carry of the contest. On the Cardinals’ opening drive, Williams rushed for 72 yards on four carries and gave the guests an early spark.

 

Williams had 178 yards in 12 carries in the first half and scored a pair of touchdowns in a successful return to the field.

Dominate with a school that size? Huh? Evidently, you havent kept up with Shelby County football much this season. They played Friday night minus 10 starters from their 1st game of the year. Besides the private schools, I want you to tell me any school that could survive or win with 10 reserves in the starting rotation.

 

Their injuries and depth have def shown over the last 3 weeks. They were 13-9 at half with Scott Co, 14-6 at half with Manual and 14-7 at half with Clark Co only to lose all 3 games. Its tough to play a varsity schedule like theirs and be successful while playing so many reserves.

 

On the other hand, your Clark Co team only scored 14 points on a def that has a habit of giving up a bunch. The Shelby Co def stepped up and played outstanding while the off struggled. I feel that the Cardinals, Crimsons and Cardinals are very lucky and should feel fortunate that Shelby Co suffered so many injuries this season.

 

Shelby will hopefully get it together and be on a roll come playoff time.
