Panthers for the First Time Since 2004 Over GrizzliesThe Panthers are kicking tails and taking names on the grid iron. I could stop right there and it would be enough of a story; however, it would not do justice to the juggernaut that has stomped some major egos into the ground. The Panther football team has become a force to be reckoned with. Now that the team is back to good health, they have upped their level of play to a seemingly unstoppable team. After dropping the first two games of the season, the Panthers have controlled the grid iron scoring 130 points in the next 3 games with the last win this past Friday night against the Grizzlies of Nicholas County. The Grizzlies came into the game ranked in the top ten and had a spotless record with zero losses. That was until the Panthers had a crack at them. It was an awesome game. The Panthers had not beat the Grizzlies since 2004, and it was time for payback. The Panther defense held when it needed to and the offense took over. The game was deadlocked at the end of regular play and went to overtime. It was nail biting time, but when the clock started clicking it was hammer time for Brandon White as he took the pig to the house scoring the eventual winning TD. Not to be under estimated, the Grizzlies had an at bat left but was foiled at the hands of Freshman Caleb Wynn. The Grizzlies attempted a pass on fourth down, and Wynn was on the receiver like a glove and came down with the ball for the interception. Zach Ahart also had a great game crossing the border four times in the game with some great runs. This was also a game that remembered Marissa Tackett, a student who lost her battle with cancer at a very young age. The CCHS band performed a musical dedication, and she was remembered by many of her friends and family. Congratulations to the CCHS Panthers on a great win – let’s keep the wins coming.
