Tonight week two of the 2019 high school football season gets underway, and the Pulaski County Maroons will be trying to get win number one of the year, while trying to get a little redemption in the process.
Coming off of last week’s 21-14 loss in the Don Franklin Bowl to Lexington Catholic, PC travels to Wayne County this evening for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff, trying to knock off a Cardinal football team that has had PC’s number in recent years.
Two years ago at Wayne County, the Cardinals scored a touchdown inside the game’s final minute, earning a hard-fought 29-27 win over the Maroons.
Last season at PC, the Cards rallied from a second half deficit to defeat Pulaski County for the second year in a row with a 34-25 win over the Maroons.
Last week, Drew Polston making his first prep start, connected on 25-44 passes for 286 yards and a touchdown, but it would not be enough to knock off the Knights, who rallied from a 14-0 halftime deficit for the 21-14 victory over Pulaski County.
Jake Sloan hauled in 14 catches last week for 192 yards in last week’s season opener, and both of those guys will need to come up big tonight for PC to have a shot at getting win number one on the season.

In other action tonight involving local teams, Southwestern will try to get win number one of the year, as the Warriors travel to Berea to face the Madison Southern Eagles.
Meanwhile, Somerset will try to stay unbeaten, as the Briar Jumpers will travel to Montgomery County to face the Indians.
