H.S. FOOTBALL: Eagles roll past Berea, 45-6

RICHMOND — The Berea Community Pirates (0-3) ran into a buzzsaw in Bardstown Friday, falling to Bethlehem 45-6.

The Eagles jumped on the Pirates quickly, scoring touchdowns on their first three possessions to take a 22-0 lead after the first quarter.

“They were bigger, stronger and quicker than us up front and they dominated the line of scrimmage,” Berea coach Adam Coleman said. “They opened up gaping holes for their running backs and we couldn’t stop it.”

Bethl-ehem got two more scores in the second quarter to take a 36-0 lead into the half.

Trailing 39-0 in the fourth quarter following a Bethlehem field goal, the Pirates didn’t quit and marched downfield and finally got on the scoreboard on a six yard touchdown run by junior Cory Mowery to cut the lead to 39-6.

Bethlehem added a touchdown inside the last four minutes of the game to set the final margin.

As they did in a loss to Nicholas County last week, Berea had several fumbles in the game, which Coleman said only made things worse.

“We snapped the ball over our heads a few times and put the ball on the ground too much and kept putting our defense in bad spots,” Coleman said. “But we did do some good things in the game too. We completed a few balls, we just didn’t have a lot of time. I was encouraged because the kids didn’t let up in the second half, they kept playing. I’m proud of that.”

Berea returns home next week to take on Class A Bracken County looking to pick up its first win of the season.
