  • FOOTBALL: Routine of the unexpected leads Bearcats to win over Mercer

    It was so unexpected. So surprising. So game-changing.

    Which, of course, made the turning point of Anderson County's 55-21 win over Mercer County last Friday seem so routine.

    Clinging to a precarious 28-21 lead over their long-time rival, the Bearcats got the break they needed when Tristin Ashburn returned a fumble to the Mercer 4. One play later, Sam Laytart burst into the end zone to put the Bearcats up by two touchdowns with 30 seconds left in the third quarter.

    Game, set and bragging rights to the Bearcats.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats explode in second half, rout Mercer

    Anderson County scored 27 unanswered points to turn a close game into a 55-21 romp past visiting Mercer County in Friday night football action.

    Leading just 28-21 and appearing to be reeling, Anderson got the break it needed when Tristin Ashburn returned a Mercer fumble to the Titan 4. On the next play, Sam Laytart scored his first varsity touchdown to make it 35-21.

    "Doesn't he have a knack for that?" Anderson coach Mark Peach said of Ashburn. "That play was huge."
