Happy Valley has rarely gone this deep in a season without the taste of victory but going into Friday night’s game against Cumberland Gap, the Warriors find themselves trying to put their first ‘W’ of the season in the win column.

It’s not like they haven’t had an opportunity to do so, but a missed tackle here and a dropped ball there has put the Warriors behind the eight-ball and right now they just want to shake off their previous games and do what it takes to pen up the Panthers who come into the game after putting up 38 points against Lynn Camp out of Corbin, Kentucky in a 38-6 win.

Once again, Coach Jason Jarrett’s defense will be counted on to give the offense a chance to put enough points on the board to gain the win.

The Panthers have put a lot of points on the board over the course of the season even in losses as they dropped a crazy 55-50 contest to Pineville, Kentucky this season while being held to only six points against conference for South Greene in a 45-6 beat down.

They have also allowed a lot of points as they have seen opponents hang a total of 154 against them.

Happy Valley just hasn’t been able to find the end zone that much this year as the Warriors have only scored 20 points in five games, an average of four points a contest.

It’s not that the Warriors haven’t given it their all, they just haven’t found the combination in the backfield to be productive as they have utilized Blake Garmon, Drew Blevins, and Andrew Little under center.

There is too much pride on Warrior Hill to settle for mediocrity. Jarrett and his coaching staff will keep putting the work in to help their team get over the hump and close their season out strong.

Nothing would help that more than getting the egg cracked in the win column and for the team to have the confidence to believe in their abilities to carry them through the rest of the season.

Jarrett and his coaching staff have faced adversity before and they will never give up on their team, especially not now.
