Silver Creek football begins season with win over Clarksville PDF Print E-mail

    This year’s Silver Creek High School junior varsity football team had the perfect start to the season.   With renewed spirit, the Silver Creek Dragons monopolized the game, easily winning over the more seasoned Clarksville Generals 25-2.
    Rain was in the forecast, bleachers generously donated by Century Industries, Sellersburg, were being pulled into place just before game time, the concession stand would be yards away from the fans, yet nothing would deter the almighty Dragons and their loyal fans.  Dragon supporters came prepared with chairs, giant umbrellas and an appetite for football and dragon burgers!
    Under the direction of head Coach Mike Donahue and Assistant Coach Kevin Brooks and with the added expertise of the specialty coaches, this relatively young Dragon team took control early in the game and never relinquished it.  
    Mark your calendars for the remaining Dragon games. Schedules for both JV and Silver Creek Middle School can be obtained on the Dragon website: www.scdragonfootball.com or through the schools.
