         It was a good night for new head Coach Tyler Guffey and the Cardinal Football players and program as they defeated neighboring Clinton County 42-6. The Cards dominated the game in the first half. In the first quarter the Cards were already leading 21-0. By the end of the second quarter the score was 35-0. 

           The Wayne County Dance Team performed a hip hop routine to entertain the crowd at halftime. 

           On the first play of the third quarter, Justin Curry picked off a pass and returned it for a touchdown adding to the Cards lead 42-0. Clinton County scored their only touchdown late in the fourth quarter. 

           Wesley Cares led the Cardinal rushing attack with four touchdowns and 105 yards rushing. Teamwise, the Cards rushed for 261 yards. The Cardinal defense gave up a total of 160 yards. Wesley Cares and Justin Curry received offense and defense players of the game. 

            Cardinal fans were planning to be back on August 27th, for the home game with Pulaski County, however, that game has been canceled due to a Covid outbreak. In September, the Cards are scheduled to travel to Rockcastle County on September 3. There is an Open slot in the schedule for September 10th. Homecoming is scheduled for September 17th at home with MCreary County.
