(FB-Thur) They did it! Switz Middle gets first football win

Warsaw-  It was a history making night Thursday as Switzerland County Middle School got its first ever football victory.  The Pacers defeated the Gallatin County Wildcats 14-6 in Warsaw (KY). 

Switz struck first when Mikey Gatto found Kyle Whitham for a quick pass over the middle that Whitham turned into a 55-yard touchdown.  Austin South ran left for the two point conversion to make it 8-0 Pacers.

Stout defense in the first two quarters by Switzerland County yielded only six points to the athletic runners of Gallatin County as it was 8-6 Pacers at halftime.

In the third quarter, Gatto scrambled and ripped off a big scoring run of 45-yards.  That extended Switzerland County’s lead back to eight, 14-6.  T

Switz had more sound defensive plays as it shut down the Wildcat offense repeatedly including a threatening drive in the fourth quarter.  South stopped Gallatin with a red zone interception.

Gallatin County made one more push but was turned away by the Pacer D.

“What an unbelievable night and atmosphere made better by all of the members of Pacer Nation that made the trip over the river to root on our team,” said Pacer coach Ryan Jesop.  “The boys fought so hard and were able to overcome their mistakes to bring home a historic win.”

Jesop offered some words of thanks.

“Thanks again to everyone who had a hand in helping us promote, create and nurture the players and program over the last eight months,” expressed Jesop. “I only wish you all were able to be on the field when the final horn sounded to see the look in their eyes and hear the roar that bellowed from the crowd.  This was an experience I know they will never forget and, with more hard off-season work, will be repeated time and again next season.”
