Headed to Edmonson and the playoffs

It should be a great Friday night for football, especially over in Brownsville.

The Dawgs will head to Edmonson County Friday to take on the Wildcats in the first round of the post-season playoffs.

After a COVID-19 game cancelled season that left Clinton County able to finish only four games, our Bulldogs stepped up in their last game, when it counted most, and the 44-14 win over Green County ensured us a trip to the playoffs again this year.

Clinton County’s season finished with a 2-2 record, the same win/loss percentage as the Wildcats ended with, although Edmonson was able to get in more games for a 3-3 campaign.

Good luck, Dawgs, as you line up against the Wildcats this Friday night. It should be a great night for Friday Night Lights – crisp, cool, no chance of rain and a game-time temperature in the low 50s for the 7:00 kick.

Winter sports will have a different look

As I noted last week, basketball is going to have a different look this season, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting restrictions.

Last week, Clinton County District Athletic Director Brandon Pharis, provided some of the regulations and restrictions that we’ll be living with this basketball season, and as I noted last week – brace up, it ain’t pretty.
