Boyle repeats as 4A champion
Boyle County has won its second consecutive Class 4A football championship and its seventh championship overall, rallying to defeat Allen County-Scottsville 21-14 in the title game tonight in Bowling Green.
The Rebels scored three times in a span of 8 minutes, 23 seconds on touchdown runs by Chris Cook, Lamar Dawson and Devon Cox to wipe out AC-S’s 7-0 halftime lead. The Patriots scored once more with 6:56 remaining, but Boyle killed 5:32 before giving the ball back to the Patriots at their own 24-yard line with 1:20 to play. Cook then intercepted a pass on fourth-and-11 to seal the Rebels’ victory in a second straight final that proved to be closer than many expected.
Boyle rushed for 249 of its 290 offensive yards, with Cook getting 175 yards on 28 carries. Cox added 63 yards on 11 attempts. Ryan Wilson had seven tackles to lead the Rebels’ defense, which allowed 239 yards. AC-S had two turnovers to Boyle’s one.
