The ball game started of slow for both teams. Neither team could get anything going in the first quarter, as well as the second quarter. Until, with fifty-three seconds left in the half the Bulldogs finally threw a twenty-five yard pass that would be in for a touchdown, but the Panthers blocked the extra point. Geneva couldn’t score, so it allowed Pike County to have a 6-0 lead going into halftime.

Pike County received the ball to start the second half, but couldn’t get anything going. Still, the Panthers couldn’t get the ball in the end zone. Panthers drove down field and got inside the thirty but the Bulldogs intercepted one of Kahari McReyonld’s passes to give the ball back to them. The interception gave Pike County momentum to drive down field, with 2:40 left in the third, to punch it in for another Bulldog touchdown and succeeded in a two point conversion.

The Bulldogs go into the fourth quarter with a 14-0 lead over Geneva. The Panthers finally gain some momentum. With 7:16 left in the ball game, senior Dylan Creech finally finds the end zone to get the Panthers on the board.
