Pulaski beats Casey

September 05, 2004

SOMERSET - Pulaski County took advantage of five Casey County turnovers in a 56-20 win Friday.

The Maroons (3-0) returned one interception for a touchdown and also picked off two other passes and recovered two Casey fumbles as they racked up 505 yards of offense and scored at least 12 points in every quarter.

"The biggest concern we have is that Pulaski was able to score so many points off five of our turnovers," Casey coach Andy Stephens said.

Pulaski led 29-7 at the half, but Stephens said he still felt confident.

"We didn't come out to play very hard," Stephens said. "I felt like if we could get the guys motivated and get back in it, we could get something we can build on from this."


Casey (0-3) and Pulaski each scored 13 points in the third quarter, but the Maroons tacked on 14 more in the fourth quarter. Casey has been outscored 125-38 in its three games.

Kyle Long completed 10 of 29 passes for 152 yards and three interceptions and ran the ball 17 times for 116 yards and all three Casey scores.

Josh Swango was Long's favorite target, hauling in four passes for 89 yards, and he also ran four times for 24 yards. Tristan Harris had two carries for 54 yards.

Brandon Raney caught three passes for 49 yards and Ricky Marrapodi caught three passes for 14 yards and ran twice for 14 yards.

"Again, missed opportunities and turnovers ended up being the biggest differences in the game," Stephens said. "The best thing we can get from this is that the guys played hard and didn't quit."
