Tyler Moore (6) looks for some running room against a stingy Monroe Central defense. The Shamrocks dropped a 21-6 decision in a game in which they had to battle not only the Seminoles, but a barrage of questionable calls by some short tempered, whistle happy officials. Record books will show, the Shamrocks were flagged nine times for penalties, but that number is misleading, if a flag is thrown and the opponent declines to accept the yardage, the called penalty is not listed in the records. Actually, Barnesville' penalties, easily hit double digits.

The 'Rocks will have to clean up their act and tighten their chin straps this week, as they must make the long trip to New Martinsville, West Virginia to battle undefeated and state-ranked Magnolia.
