After being down 12-7 at halftime, the Letcher County Central Cougar Football team went on a 15-0 run in the 3rd quarter to get a huge district win over Perry County Central Friday night at Cougar Field.
The final score was LCC 22 Perry Central 18.
With the win the Cougars could see their first home playoff game since 2009.
If the Cougars beat Whitley County on the road this Friday, they will secure 2nd place in the district standings and a home playoff game.
