Garrard takes a toll on Bethlehem
Garrard County’s football victory over Bethlehem last week was apparently worse that it appeared, even at 45-6. The Kentucky Standard reports that Bethlehem has canceled its game this week against Corbin, which was supposed to be the Eagles’ home opener.
The newspaper says the team, which had 45 players last year, started this season with 26 but is down to 17 healthy bodies after losing to Garrard and Elizabethtown by a combined score of 100-18.
Athletic director Tom Brown, the former Boyle County principal, said in the story that the program is sound and is focusing on its upcoming district schedule.
