Dennison sparks Bardstown to homecoming win

Senior Jarrett Dennison rushed for three first-half scores and grabbed an interception Friday as host Bardstown picked up its first district win, defeating Waggener 30-18.


Bardstown's Jarrett Dennison wades through the Waggener defense for the first of his three touchdown runs Friday night, leading the Tigers to a 30-18 win.

“I was really proud of the kids tonight,” Tigers coach David Clark said. “Jarrett came in at quarterback and gave us a lot of leadership. I thought we played outstanding all the way around.”

The Tigers (3-3 overall, 1-1 dist.) handled the rain better in the second straight week of inclement weather, but fared much better this go around, hitting paydirt on four separate occasions before halftime.

Dennison — who made his starting debut at quarterback — powered his squad down the field, scoring on their fifth play from scrimmage when junior running back Tariq Armour dashed 62 yards for the game’s first touchdown just 90 seconds into the game.

Waggener (2-4, 0-2 dist.) botched its punt attempt on the next drive, giving the Tigers excellent field position. However, Bardstown fumbled it away on the very next play.

Waggener wasted little time in taking advantage of the turnover as the Wildcats rallied with a 62-yard touchdown run, but failed on their two-point conversion, making the score 7-6.

Later in the first stanza, Bardstown recovered a fumble on the Waggener 18-yard line, and on the next play, Dennison took it in to make it 13-6 by the end of the first quarter.

The Tigers moved the football down the field in the second period, and scooted across the goal line again when Dennison jogged in from the 4-yard line behind offensive lineman Greg Maddox with 8:08 to go before half, making the margin 21-6 after a two-point conversion pass to Voshon Livers.

“I have to give it up to all our linemen,” Dennison said. “They provided the motivation tonight and they done it all. They opened up all the holes and I just ran as hard as I could. Greg (Maddox) made a big impact for us tonight and I followed him to the end zone a couple of times.”

Bardstown scored again just before intermission as Dennison got his third score of the game to make it 28-6 Tigers at the half.

Waggener produced a burst of momentum to start the third and fourth quarters, by scoring a touchdown at the beginning of each period, but the Tigers answered the call and held the rest of the way on defense, thanks in part to sophomore Jeremeha Odom, Thomas Bowling and Devyn Martindill.

Odom also tacked on a safety with 2:33 to go, resulting in the final score, a Bardstown 30-18 victory.

“This was a must-win for us,” Clark said. “After falling last week, I thought the kids really rallied together and played really well.”

Bardstown visits Moore this week. The Mustangs are 2-4 overall and 1-1 in district play after a 46-6 loss at Central.
