Heading into Friday night’s first-round playoff game versus Holy Cross, Owen County knew the person they had to stop in order to have a chance at coming away with the victory. As it turned out, stopping Markel Walker was something the Rebels could not do.
Walker had a hand in all five of the Indians’ first-half touchdowns to give Holy Cross a 34-3 lead at halftime. They never looked back.
• The Indians finished the season 5-5 overall and 2-1 in the District 6. They defeated Newport and Lloyd and lost to Newport Central Catholic.
• Holy Cross is coached by Bruce Kozerski. Bengal fans may be familiar with Kozerski, who played for the orange and black for 12 seasons. He was a member of the Superbowl team that lost to the San Francisco 49ers in 1989.
I read with interest the opinion of Chris LeSuer (News-Herald, Oct. 14) regarding the rise in our tax bill. He seemed concerned that for every $100,000 home an extra $13 a year ($108 total) would be collected to support the library. Mr. LeSuer wanted his fellow Owen countians to be aware of this fact, stating that they could then form their own opinion as to the justification of the tax.
