H.S. FOOTBALL: Paris roll past Pirates; Playoff matchups finalized for Central and Southern

RICHMOND — Not much went right for the short-handed Pirates Friday in the regular-season finale on the road against Paris.

Berea Community (2-8) committed six turnovers and suffered a 55-7 loss. The Pirates’ only touchdown came on a 1-yard run by Cory Mowery on the final play of the game.

Berea was playing without wide receiver Deondre Tate, running back Jason Strong and offensive lineman Forest McKinley.

“We just didn’t play well,” Berea coach Adam Coleman said. “We couldn’t tackle and we did get anything going offensively.”

The Greyhounds scored on their first drive and took a 41-0 lead into halftime.

Berea is set to open the Class A Playoffs next Friday at Pineville.

Central set to face Henry Clay

The Indians are set to face a familiar foe next week in the opening round of the Class 6A Playoffs.

Central (2-8) will travel to Henry Clay (7-2) next Friday.

The teams played on Oct. 4 in Richmond and the Blue Devils picked up a 41-21 victory.

Central and Henry Clay were both off Friday after concluding their regular-season schedules last week.

The final matchups between the two districts were not finalized until after Bryan Station’s loss to Ballard Friday in Louisville. If the Defenders would have won, Central would have played Station next week.

Southern to face Letcher Central

Madison Southern (7-2) is set to take on Letcher County Central (4-6) next Friday in the opening round of the Class 5A Playoffs in Berea.

Letcher County Central lost 53-22 to Breathitt County Friday in its regular-season finale. That loss made the Cougars the No. 3 seed in District 8 and set up a showdown with Madison Southern.

Perry Central defeated Pike County Central on Friday and will be the No. 2 seed in District 8. The Commodores will play host to North Laurel next week.
