BCMS, GMS football to compete in state tournament

GLASGOW — Glasgow and Barren County Middle Schools’ football squads will each compete in the Kentucky Middle School Football Association (KMSFA) state tournament.

Thanks to an 8-0 record and a defense that held its opponents to just six points throughout the course of the season, the BCMS’ seventh-graders will open postseason play against Henry F. Moss Middle School at Trojan Field Monday at 5:30 p.m.

According to head coach Todd Stevens, only 16 teams were chosen to take part in the seventh-grade tournament. Some squads were selected after winning conference championships, while others were chosen for the caliber of their wins.

Barren fell into the former category, an accomplishment Stevens said trumps any possible state title.

“Winning our conference was the important thing for me,” he said. “That may sound strange, but (the middle school) hasn’t opened (its) trophy case since these kids were one year old, and we get to hang a banner this year.”

In the event of a win against Henry F. Moss, Barren would move on to face to face the winner of Bowling Green/Lone Oak. The Trojans won their regular season game against Moss 12-0.

“We’ll get to go play football, have fun and see how good we really are,” Stevens said.

Glasgow’s seventh and eighth grade squads will also compete in the tournament.

The seventh grade team will open play against Meade County in a noon showdown at Glasgow High School on Saturday. Across the state, the eighth-grade will play at Corbin at 5 p.m in the Division II playoffs.

The eighth-grade team will come into the tournament as the reigning champions of last year’s seventh-grade bracket.

“We’ll come in as defending champs, so we’ll get to have a chip on our shoulders,” GMS head coach Scott Jones said.

The tournament’s second round is scheduled to begin Oct. 23.
