HARRODSBURG - Even if it was winless Taylor County that yielded 54 points to Russell County, it was still enough offense by Russell to worry Mercer County coach Duane Hammons going into Friday's game at Russell Springs.
"When you put 50 points on the scoreboard, you are doing something right," said Hammons. "They were able to score a lot of points and even though they also gave up 32, most of those points came late against reserves. Basically, the game was total domination by Russell County."
The Lakers had managed just 13 points in losses to Adair County, Somerset and Pulaski Southwestern before their triple option offense broke loose last week.
"I really like their quarterback, Nick Huckaby. They live and die with him running the triple option and we have to be able to stop that," Hammons said. "We've got to be able to stop the fullback, Scott George, as well. He's an excellent power runner that makes the option go."
