GLASGOW — The Glasgow Scotties are finished with their regular season, and with an 8-2 record after taking a win handily from Elizabethtown, head coach Rick Wood just wants to enjoy it.

“We were happy with the way we were playing and just happy with the game,” Wood said after Friday nights 47-6 rout of home team Elizabethtown.

Though they played in a cold, steady rain all night that made them rely on their running game, the Scotties didn’t let an early score by the Panthers stop their ongoing momentum. That momentum has taken them from two losses in the middle of the season to routs in their last two games and one at the end of September in which they stormed away from Clinton County with a 62-0 victory.

After a drive of 57 yards to bring E’town the lead in the first quarter, the Scotties picked up where they’d left off and scored 47 unanswered points with more than 300 yards rushing and 60 plays on offense. The Scotties had 32 minutes of offensive possession, compared to 15 for the Panthers.

“It was one of those nights where the offensive line and the running backs were doing great,” Wood said.

Running backs Quentel Bradley and Marquez Trigg tacked on 100-plus yards of offense by themselves.

Four Panther turnovers helped the Scotties, even when they had two of their own. But the Panthers made their mistakes in their own territory — two inside their own 30-yard line — that cost them.

Wood and the Scotties now get ready to face a 2-8 Washington County in the first round of the playoffs.
