  • Commanders fall in playoffs, 42-7

    In playoff football, it all comes down to a win-or-go-home situation. The Washington County Commanders (3-7) traveled to Tompkinsville Friday night to take on the Monroe County Falcons (6-4) in the opening round of the Class 2A playoffs, and coach Mark Perry’s team ran into a good, athletic squad.

    Washington County came in having won two of its last four games, including the regular-season finale over Campbellsville. On the other side of the field, Monroe County had dropped three of its last four, despite a 6-0 start to the season.

    In his first year as head coach of the Patriots, J.T. Burton says the demanding Mid-South Conference schedule was a “real eye-opener” for him. And now, as Burton prepares for his second campaign at St. Catharine, he hopes it is his own team that opens some eyes around the conference and the region.

    “You talk about teams that are very good in the half-court, that is what you have with every team in the conference,” said Burton. “Transfer players are important in this conference, ones that can play the tough defense that you need to win.”

    There was an all-out war waged at Bennett R. Lewis Field last week. But wait, didn’t the Commanders play in Danville this past Friday? Yes, they did. The titanic struggle of gridiron guts and glory I’m speaking of was the annual powder puff football game played at Washington County High School. It was a battle until the final seconds when the seniors tied the game at 12-12 as the clock ran out and finally won it in a tiebreaker.

    The 2009 regular season for the St. Catharine College soccer teams is winding down as Paul Patton’s squads look toward the Mid-South Conference playoffs scheduled for early November. Much of the regular season was put on hold recently as the St. Catharine men and women had to postpone games due to the persistent rainy weather that rendered the Barber Soccer field a quagmire. The teams were able to get in two games each recently and ended those contests with one tie and three losses against tough competition.
