    It was golf and the sport's decorum would not have allowed such a demonstration. But that did not mean the Anderson boys could not be happy with the 148-150 win at Wild Turkey Trace.

    “The grin has returned,” Anderson coach Jim Beward said. “All five guys shot under 40 for the first time in my tenure as coach.”

    Exhilarating.

    That had to be the feeling around Anderson County football after a 50-21 win at George Rogers Clark Friday night. The Bearcats were far from perfect, to be sure, but they did a lot of things right in beating a decent opponent Friday night.
