Magoffin vs Leslie, Leslie won 42-0.

Magoffin County under the direction of new Head Coach and Breathitt County native Justin Combs. Combs took over the reigns at Magoffin less than two weeks ago and were over matched by Leslie County 42-0. It is going to take a little time for Combs to install his offense and defensive schemes. Combs is a good young coach and will have his kids playing hard every night.
