Play's Over

ORRICK QUARTERBACK Blake Buchanan gets up after being tackled during the Bearcats' 38-30 win over North Shelby Oct. 25 at North Shelby.

SHELBYVILLE – Orrick sophomore Blake Buchanan had his share of long runs against North Shelby.

It was a short run of his, however, that helped the Bearcats secure their Oct. 25 road win and their first outright Central River Conference 8-man football title.

Late in the fourth quarter, with the score 38-30 Orrick, the Bearcats faced fourth-and-2 at the North Shelby 34-yard line. Buchanan responded with a 4-yard run to give Orrick a first down. Sparked by the run, along with a personal foul call against North Shelby following a 5-yard run by Buchanan, the Bearcats held onto the ball and ran out the clock to finish off their eight-point win.
