SALYERSVILLE — Coach Joe Chirico and his Paintsville Tigers made the trip to Salyersville Saturday evening to take on the Magoffin County Hornets in scrimmage action. This was the first time this season teams have been able to put on the pads and play in a competitive nature against other teams.
The teams played in a 10 and 10 format with no clock running and no scores being kept. Coaches were also able to stay on the field and coach their team.
The Tigers made a strong showing on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball with Jake Hyden completing two pass plays for scores in his showing as quarterback. JW Phelps played strong as did the rest of the Paintsville defense holding Magoffin County and on several occasions, breaking up the play at the line of scrimmage.
Paintsville’s offical season gets underway August 17 as they take on Estill County, at 7:30 p.m. at home. Magoffin County will travel to East Carter that same night to kickoff their season.
