  • Pettigrew, Eagles top Falcons

    Just when the Monroe County Falcons thought they had all the answers, the Campbellsville Eagles changed the questions.

    A Campbellsville player lost the wrist band that contains the plays Eagles coach Dale Estes calls throughout the course of a game, but even that wasn’t enough for the Falcons to come out with a victory.

    Estes simply changed the way he called the plays in to his players, and the Eagles responded just the way the coach hoped as they pulled away for a 55-22 victory Friday night at Dave Fryrear Field.

    Griffin Hall, Alexander Langnese and Ryan Maynard all scored as Taylor County beat Campbellsville, 3-0 last Thursday evening.

    “Players played well,” Campbellsville coach Dale Estes said in a text message. “We came out and took care of business and put the game away early.”

    And in the run up to Friday’s game at Dave Fryrear Field, the Campbellsville junior heard even more chatter about how the Eagles weren’t going to win on their home field.
