Breathitt v. Powell Preview

September 17, 2020 – ROB HOUNSHELL – BSN

After a hard fought win at Estill County last Friday night, Coach Kyle Moore and his 2A Breathitt Bobcats will travel down the Mountain Parkway to Stanton to try and knock off another 3A school in the Powell County Pirates.  These two are long time rivals and former District foes.

The newcomer to the matchup is new Pirate Captain Mike Jones. Jones is an proponent of pounding the ball on the ground and his Pirate put up 34 points last week to get a season opening win agains Prestonsburg. The Pirates did pound the ball putting up 324 Rushing yards against Prestonsburg. Running backs Stephen Norris, Larry Shifflet, and Tyler Charles spearhead the rushing game for the Pirates. The PIrate defense will also be on the hunt. Three fumble recoveries and three quarterback sacks in the opener have to be on the radar for the coaching staff and offensive line for Breathitt. 

The Bobcats will look to the guidance of quarterback Jaylen Turner and stong play from the offensive line for the win. Caden Bowling and Lane Weddle will be looking for big nights in the ground game. Keep in mind that the Bobcats put up over 300 yards passing last week against Estill County, and the Pirates will need strong play from it’s deep backs to defend the talented receivers of Breathitt County. 

The game is set for a 7:30 pm kick and you can watch BSN’s LIVE stream of the game on the BSN Facebook Page. BSN play-by-play man Bradley Charles is a Powell County grad and he and color commentator Rob Hounshell (Breathitt) will call the game

BSN photographers Brendon Miller and Wallace Caleb Bates will provide picture galleries of the game!!!

Let’s get ready for a good one folks!
