Other scores: South Knox 50, Monrovia 43
Clay City 59, Paoli 53
Forest Park 66, Hauser 56
Eastern Greene 47, Brown County 44: Eastern rallies from eight-point halftime deficit and hits 10 of 15 free throws in fourth.

Eastern Greene put up a fight, but it was undefeated Paoli that prevailed 49-24 Friday night at Eastern field.

The Thunderbirds were able to keep it close for one half with the Rams, who are undefeated and rolling with the state’s 16th highest scoring offense. But Paoli came out of halftime to cruise to a victory, never allowing an offensive touchdown in the second half, after giving up three before the break.

“We just had to play and we had to get after it and be physical,” Rams head coach Brian Balsmeyer said.

Paoli got a big contribution from junior Tyler Dillard, who rushed for 124 rushing yards on just five carries. Dillard accounted for two scores off two big runs for 59 and 44 yards and gave the Rams a quick touchdown with about a minute left in the first half.

Paoli quarterback Logan Loswell had a total of four touchdowns and passed for 190 yards. He added 63 rushing yards. Receiver Tate Smith caught both of Loswell’s touchdown passes in the first half.

“We gave up too many big plays,” Eastern coach Luke Dean said. “At times, the defense looked really good, but it only takes one person not doing their job to get you beat.”

Eastern quarterback Gunnar Portar threw for 168 yards and touchdowns, and he added 91 rushing yards.
