Friday night football scrimmages: Collins wins, Shelby County loses

In high school football scrimmage action Friday night Collins beat Lexington Lafayette 20-9, while Shelby County fell to Owen County 20-9.

I attended the Rockets' scrimmage and the bad news for there was that junior quarterback Zach Shipley left the game late in the first quarter with a shoulder injury and junior wideout/safety Michael Barry was ejected for throwing a punch during a first-half scrum.

Shelby County shot itself in the foot with first-half turnovers and unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, including Barry's. Then late in the second half the Rockets had a touchdown called back by penalty.
