With a 61-0 loss to Danville last Friday, the Washington County Commanders’ first round playoff game is set for Nov. 6 vs. Monroe County in Tompkinsville, Ky. But right now, WC has to get that nasty taste out of their mouths by starting fresh and preparing for the final regular season home game against the Campbellsville Eagles on senior night this Friday.

“It was hard to sleep after the Danville game,” said Commander head coach Mark Perry. “We didn’t come into the game with the same emotional intensity we had in Bardstown. We have a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation going on, and against Bardstown, we were Dr. Jekyll, and then from out of nowhere, this Hyde team appears, and I wish it was something I could figure out. Obviously if you could change it, you would change it and not let that guy show up anymore.”

It was clearly the Admirals’ game as they jumped out to a 14-point lead in the first quarter and tacked on 26 more in the second to take a 40-0 lead into the break.

Washington County tried several forms of offense, including use of the “wildcat formation” with junior Qwan Turner taking snaps. Nothing seemed to be in the Commanders’ favor.
