Pulaski County was minus two starters on Tuesday night with the flu against visiting Estill County.
No Grant Oaks and no KJ Combs — no problem for the Maroons.
John Fraley’s club had 10 players hit the scoring column, while PC seized control of the game with a 25-7 second quarter over the Engineers.
As a result, it was the Maroons moving to 16-9 on the season with an 87-49 beatdown over the Engineers.
Garrett Heath led Pulaski County with 18 points, and Colton Fraley added 15 points for the Maroons.
Pulaski County led this one 17-15 at the end of the first quarter, but thanks to that 25-7 flurry in the second frame, Fraley and crew had this one well in hand by the intermission, leading Estill County at that juncture by a score of 42-22.
In the second half, things got no better for the Engineers as PC put this one on a running clock due to the 36-point mercy rule.
Zach Travis and Caleb Adams added 9 points each in the win, while three other Maroon players added 8 points.
Pulaski County — 16-9 on the season — will return to action on Friday night at Southwestern.
