GMS wins!

Eighth-graders beat Taylor County for first win

GLASGOW — The Glasgow Middle School eighth-grade football team bounced back with the Scotties’ first win of the year last Saturday defeating Taylor County,  28-0, in the Taylor County Bowl Bash in Campbellsville. The Scotties are now 1-1 on the year.

Glasgow’s first score of the game came on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Dessi Austin to Jasper Mundy. Mundy then ran the ball over for the two-point conversion.

Taylor County turned the ball over four times to the Scotties on the day with the first turnover coming in the opening minute of the second quarter when Kyle Nickson recovered a fumble.

Glasgow’s Henry Harris picked off a second half interception, which set up the Scotties’ next score, a 50-yard touchdown run by Mundy.

A keeper by Austin on the conversion put Glasgow up 16-0.

Dustin Asher picked off an interception late in the third quarter to set up the Scotties’ third touchdown, a 13-yard pass from Austin to Nickson and a Mundy rushing conversion.

Glasgow’s Peyton Mills recovered a fumble at the 4:44 mark in the fourth quarter for Glasgow’s fourth take away of the game. And that set up the Scotties’ final score on a 30-yard touchdown run by Nickson.

The conversion failed and Glasgow closed out the game with a 28-0 victory.

Mundy was named Most Valuable Player of the Glasgow-Taylor County game by Bowl Bash officials.

The Scotties face Grayson County in seventh and eighth grade action on Saturday, Aug. 21, in Leitchfield.
