Week 6 is in the books and it was full of surprises. To start the excitement off Breathitt County (1-5) was off to a horrible start this season as they traveled to Knott Central (3-2) who was having a great season. Breathitt won 50-43 and showed why you play the games and don’t just go by season play thus far.  Floyd Central (4-2) was surprised at home by Pike Central 35-34. Letcher Central (0-6) continued to struggle as they ran in to a buzz saw at home losing to Perry Central (5-0) 44-34.There were also several games that found no surprise in the final results of their games. Belfry (4-1) rolled over Sheldon Clark 63-8, and Corbin (4-1) won again squeezing by Mayfield 20-17. Pineville (2-4) fell to Cumberland Gap TN 32-12, and Hazard (3-1) beat Prestonsburg (2-3) 29-7.

In the Bluegrass Nation Game of the week, Magoffin (2-4) who had been playing well, traveled to Powell County (1-4) and was manhandled 50-12. Powell County’s  Nate Skidmore scored 26 points including a 63 yard fumble recovery for td. He also had a 3 yd td run, a 7 yd td run, an 8 yd td run, plus Skidmore had a 2 point conversion.

Pirate Kicker Bryan Baker was 4 of 5 in extra point attempts.  The win was Powell’s first of the season after 4 disappointing losses. Magoffin will have to go back to the drawing board to try and get back on track after dropping 2 in a row. The Hornets have been either feast or famine. In their 2 wins they outscored their opponents 54-40 while in their 4 losses they have been outscored  185 – 44. There is still time to turn things around for both Powell and Magoffin.
