 A week after falling 27-0 to Meade County, the South Oldham Dragons reponded in a big way Friday night, knocking off host North Bullitt 26-6 in a game that wasn't as close as the score suggests.


The Eagles struck first on their opening drive as Travis Downing plunged in from four yards out with eight minutes to play in the first quarter but from then on, it was all South Oldham as they would score 19 unanswered points.

TiCorian Williams put the Dragons on the board nearly seven minutes later, scampering in from 15 yards out and quarterback Jack Sherry extended the lead to 14 with under a minute to play in the half on a 30 yard scoring toss to Kyle Young. 

The Dragons had the chance to push ahead by another score after recovering an onside kick with 20 seconds left but a pair of passes into the endzone fell short.

Sherry added one score more in first game back from suspension, channeling his inner Tim Tebow on a 25 yard dash to the endzone in the the fourth quarter, breaking a handful of tackles along the way.

Sophomore running back Kevin Kuriger led the team in rushing with 64 yards on nine rushes, while Shrry did the majority of his damage through the air with 194 yards and a touchdown on nine completions.

Three of those went to Kyle Young, who finished with 68 yards receiving and a touchdown.

On the defensive side of the ball, Steven Jones finished with eight tackles, while Cody Merriss and Shane Smith contributed 5 1/2 each as well.

South Oldham will look to open up their first win streak of the season next week as they travel to Buckner for a 7:30 p.m.showdown with Oldham County Friday.

Check back tomorrow afternoon for an extended recap.
