Cougars surrender lead, see winning streaks end

The streak has ended! Plagued by penalties and fumbles, the Logan County Cougars surrendered a 10-point lead late in the fourth quarter and fell 21-17 to district champion Madisonville-North Hopkins during Senior Night at LCHS. The Cougars led 17-7 midway through the fourth quarter and Gary Hardy picked up an apparent first down near midfield. But one of the Cougars’ many unnecessary penalties nullified the play. When Coach Todd Adler decided to go for it on fourth down, backfield blocking broke down and Hardy, who ran for over 100 yards, was tackled for a loss. Then Cougar return man Third Bell fumbled the ball away at the Logan six. A little over a minute later, M-NH took the lead. Logan quarterback Tyler Ezell passed for over 200 yards, Chandler Silvey caught six passes, Anthony Woodard made huge plays on both sides of the ball, kicker Luis Arevalo was on target all night, and the Cougars still saw their undefeated streak end at seven games and their consecutive regular season wins top out at 18 games. The loss probably means the Cougars will finish second in the district and have to face defending state champion Franklin-Simpson on the road in the regional semifinals.

Cougars lead Maroons 17-7 in third quarter

Playing the best team on their schedule on Senior Night, the undefeated Logan County Cougars lead a super Madisonville-North Hardin team 17-7 midway through the third quarter. The Maroons marched 71 yards on their opening possession to take a 7-0 lead that lasted until 2:14 remaining in the half when Logan quarterback Tyler Ezell scored from the one. Luis Arevalo tied the score on the first of his three successful kicks. Ezell completed key passes to Chandler Silvey and Reggie Powell, and a 34-yard run by Gary Hardy contributed to that score. After a Cougar interception by Powell, the Cougars scored again on a 35-yard pass from Ezell to Anthony Woodard. Logan led 14-7 at the half. The Cougars maintained possession for over five minutes to start the second half, culminating in a 34-yard field goal by Arevalo. The game is being carried on all of WRUS’ platforms.

Ezell-less Cougars hold on for 10-6 win at Hoptown

Despite a second quarter injury to star quarterback Tyler Ezell, the Logan County Cougars held on for a 10-6 district win at Hopkinsville Friday. The Cougars were leading 7-3 on a 39-yard counter by Maurice Gordon capped by a Lucas Arevalo extra point kick. When Ezell went down, the Cougar offense was stagnant for several possessions but came to life when his backup, Nate Woodall, completed much-needed passes to Anthony Woodard & Jaden Sells. Arevalo built the lead to four on a 41-yard field goal with 3:18 remaining. Caden McKinnis, Ethan Steenbergen & Collier Kempf recorded sacks late in the game, Damon Stephens made a key fumble recoverym and Ethan Haley punted to the Tigers' six-inch line. The Cougars committed some errors and were penalized for them and also for some that Coach Todd Adler doesn't believe were justified. Logan is now 7-0 overall, 2-0 in the district and almost certainly assured a home game to start the playoffs. This was the 18th straight regular season win for Adler and his team.

Panthers come back from 22-0 deficit to win 23-22

In one of the most memorable comebacks in Russellville football history, the Panthers scored 23 points in the final 12 minutes (fourth quarter) and 11 seconds (last play of the third quarter) to break the hearts of visiting Fulton County Friday. Fulton County (4-2) almost never is competitive against RHS, let alone getting a win. The Pilots appeared to be headed toward a blowout before Panther quarterback Jacob Naylor scored on a 23-yard run. He then completed a two-point conversion pass to freshman Lennon Ries. With 7:52 remaining in the third, Naylor completed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Flores. This time Naylor connected with Devan Kimbrough on another two-pointer. A lost fumble could have done the Panthers in, but the defense held and Naylor threw a 65-yard TD pass to Flores. Then Hunter McDowell kicked the winning point with 3:11 remaining. The defense held with Naylor intercepting the Pilots’ final pass to seal the win. Coach Mikie Benton praised freshman Ben Allen for his play in the game. RHS is now 1-0 in the district and 3-4 overall.

Top seed at stake in F-S at LCHS in boys soccer

When the Franklin-Simpson boys soccer team visits Logan County Thursday afternoon, the number one seed in the district tournament will be on the line. Coach Hunt McCollum's Cougars are 5-0 in the 13th District and the Wilcats 4-1, following Logan's 2-1 win at Franklin. An F-S win this week, however, would lead to a coin flip. It's important to be the top seed to set up a tournament semifinal match with winless Todd Central. The number two seed will have to play a vastly improved Russellville team which lost 2-1 in overtime to Logan a few days ago and played Franklin close. Todd and Russellville play today, but even if the Rebels upset the Panthers RHS will still be the number three seed.

Running clocks in play on Cougars' win, Panthers' loss

A running clock was good news for one team from the Land of Logan in high school football Friday, but not for the other. Logan County led 48-6 at the half over visiting Hopkins County Central. A 36-point margin is needed to keep the scoreboard clock in motion on traditional time stopages. This is the fifth game in the Cougars' six wins that the clock has worked extra fast. Logan, which leads the state Class 4A in scoring and in fewest points allowed, won 68-13.
At Murray, the Russellville Panthers were only behind 31-6 at the half, but Murray gained the running clock at 2:36 in the third quarter at 45-6. The Tigers scored on their first nine possessions to take a 59-12 lead midway through the fourth quarter, which proved to be the final score. The ninth possession came on the return of a fumbled Panther kickoff return.
Logan County is now 6-0, Murray 4-2, Hopkins County Central 3-3 and Russellville 2-4.

Darden shines in Toppers' narrow loss at U of L

Former Russellville star Coco Darden played a super game at Louisville Saturday night in the Cardinals' come-from-behind 20-17 win over WKU. Darden, who is the starting nickelback for the Toppers, was credited with a career-high-tying eight tackles, including one for a loss. He returned two U of L kickoffs for WKU totaling 52 yards, including a 37-yarder after Coach Bobby Petrino's team had taken their first lead of the game on a late field goal. The Cardinal quarterbacks refused to throw toward receivers matched against Darden. The narrow loss may well have been the most impressive performance of embattled coach Mike Sanford's lackluster 1.3 coaching career on The Hill so far.

WRUS 65 years old today

Sixty-five years ago today—Aug. 28, 1953—a grand experiment came to Russellville when WRUS radio (610 AM) went on the air for the first time. A few years later, WRUS FM was added to make it easier for listeners to hear broadcasts for a greater distance, especially at night. On Aug. 28, 2018, the AM station remains in the same location and with the same commitment to service for the people of Logan County. The FM station has been known as WRUS FM, KQ101, and WBVR (The Beaver). It even disappeared for a few years. Now, however, WRUS FM is back on the air at 94.1, and is again strengthening the AM simulcast throughout the county. Watch The LoJo for more history of WRUS’ 65 years of serving the Land of Logan.

Word now is that only one hotel is planed in the immediate future and that the former Perry's Drug Store location which stood for decades next to Duncan's has also been purchased by developer Deborah Hirsh and is scheduled for demolition. The filled-in site is on the south side of East Fourth where the bank previously stood.
