The Owen County youth football team continues to make history and completed its regular season with a perfect season and a super bowl championship against surrounding teams such as Gallatin, Grant, Walton-Verona and Pendleton County.
The squad traveled to Jessamine County to play in a 9-and-under tournament. They fought through the tough, cold conditions to continue their winning streak. Their record stands at 19-0.
Saturday, they won their pool against Larue County (18-0) and a close game in overtime against Jessamine County (12-6) making them the No. 1 seed.
Sunday, play started up with a shut-out victory against Montgomery County, 34-0.
For the semi-finals, the young team met up with Jessamine County again who were desperately wanting revenge. But the Rebels proceeded to a 44-2 victory.
With Larue County upsetting the defending national champion, Lake Cumberland, Owen County would have to play back-to-back games and beat Larue County a second time to win the championship.
A tired group of Rebels held on and fought hard to shut Larue County out again with a final score of 20-0.
This makes the fourth championship that this team has won this season.
Their final tournament will be this weekend in Owensboro at the King of the Hill Tournament.
In the upcoming tournament, the squad will have an opportunity to not only play teams that represent the best in Kentucky but also surrounding states such as Michigan, Georgia and Tennessee.
