Buffaloes give Coach Beale 200th career win with 42-14 victory over EastMont
Floyd County High School’s Buffaloes varsity football team gave Coach Winfred Beale his 200th career victory as coach Friday night with a 42-14 demolition of the Eastern Montgomery Mustangs before a small but enthusiastic home crowd.
Floyd jumped into an early lead 6-0 with a touchdown but missed extra point then fell behind 7-6 when the kickoff following the touchdown was returned by EastMont along a successful PAT, but the Buffloes took control of the game with two touchdowns and successful extra points in the second quarter to head into the locker room at halftime with a 20-7 lead.
Floyd added 20 more points in the third quarter and a late fourth quarter touchdown by EastMont did little to change the outcome. The Buffaloes head into the final two games of the season with a 2-6 overall record and 1-3 in the district.
Congratulations to Coach Beale for reaching his 200th victory as a high school football coach.
