    A combination of mistakes on special teams and a lack of size on defense resulted in the Washington County Commanders’ fourth straight defeat as they lost 58-45 to the Bardstown Tigers on Friday night in Springfield.

    “If you take four or five plays out of the game, it would have been a different ball game,” said WC head football coach Mark Perry. “We’ve got to eliminate those mistakes.”

    It's been said many times before that you should never meet your heroes. People have a tendency to build their idols up and make them larger than life, only to see their dream crash and burn when reality sets in – mostly because said hero turns out to be an arrogant jerk.

    Voting for the award is done by each of the seven member schools in the conference.
