The Wildcats struggled mightily against the Raiders on Friday night as they fell 48-0 at Warren East.
Edmonson County had no answer for the Raiders offense and couldn't handle the defensive pressure from East when the Cats had the ball.
The Raiders wasted no time establishing the tone as they scored seconds into the game on a 9 yard catch by Roger Duncan from quarterback Dane Parsley. The extra point was good for a 7-0 Raiders lead.
Edmonson County trailed 42-0 at the half and with a running clock, the Wildcats remained outmatched the rest of the way and were unable to turn things around.
Nathan Smith, offensive line and linebacker coach for the Wildcats, said Edmonson County was mismatched on both the offensive and defensive lines.
"They had a massive front five against us and we're starting some young guys and some small guys, and it just was not a good match for us up front," he said. "They played hard, our boys are always going to play hard, that's not ever going to be an issue. There's some things we learned a little bit tonight from this and we came into it a little banged up. What we need to focus on with our guys is that in a game in September against Warren East doesn't really matter for anything against us. We play in a very winnable district and we have games that are much more on our level. Caverna, Metcalfe, Monroe, and Clinton, those are games and schools that look like us. They're the same size, and things like that, so we just got to keep our boys' heads up and make sure that this doesn't derail us and that we're able to keep our heads up and look forward to the end of the season."
Edmonson County is now 0-3 on the season and will travel to Hancock County next Friday.
