Late score lifts Garrard

Carroll tops Pioneers

October 26, 2003

Tim Quisenberry scored on a 3-yard run with less than a minute to play to give visiting Garrard County a 10-3 win over Russell County Friday at Russell Springs.

The victory gives Garrard (8-1) at least one home game in the upcoming Class AA playoffs and sets up a district title matchup at Corbin this week.

Garrard managed just 182 yards of total offense, but won because its defense limited Russell (1-8) to 165 yards and forced three turnovers - interceptions by Jake Cool, Sean Paul Leavell and Ryan Hulett.

Quisenberry had 10 tackles, including four for loss, and Hulett had eight tackles, including three for loss. Mark Major led the Golden Lions with 12 tackles and Brad Young had eight.


Corey Horn hit a 36-yard field goal on his first attempt of the year in the first half to give Garrard a 3-0 lead. Russell tied the game midway through the final period after a Garrard fumble.

"They had fourth down and inches inside the 10-yard line but elected to go for the field goal rather than the touchdown," said Garrard coach Steve Stonebraker. "They tied the game, but then Jake Cool made a nice kickoff return and we were able to drive for the winning score."

Cool, who had three catches for 31 yards, had two receptions on Garrard's winning 60-yard drive, which was also aided by a pass interference call.

"Jake had a great run on a screen pass to set up our winning touchdown," Stonebraker said. "He broke numerous tackles and then Quisenberry just powered the ball into the end zone to give us a big win."

Bruce Williams was 11-for-15 passing for 117 yards. Chris Clark had three catches for 37 yards and also had two punt returns for 39 yards and a kickoff return for 29 yards.

Carroll County 37, Harrodsburg 7 - At Carrollton, the visiting Pioneers had nine turnovers and gave up 21 points in the second quarter to lose for the second time this season.

"We had eight fumbles and one interception," Harrodsburg coach Terry Yeast said. "That pretty much explains how things went for us. We just made way too many mistakes."

The Pioneers also played without Mark Dunn, the area's leading rusher. He missed the game with an ankle injury.

Harrodsburg (7-2) had 204 yards of total offense - 170 rushing, 34 passing. Brandon Brown, who scored on a 19-yard run in period one, ran 19 times for 112 yards and Cory Jackson had 10 carries for 54 yards. Quarterback Freeman Edwards was 3-of-15 passing for 34 yards with one interception.

Shane Webb led Harrodsburg's defense with 12 tackles while Chris Sheron had 12 and Jackson 11. Jackson also had two interceptions and Brown one.
