The Hazard Bulldogs hosted the Perry County Central Commodores in this year’s Black Gold Cup. The Commodores have never lost a Black Gold Cup, or a game to the Bulldogs. Hazard was looking to bring both streaks to an end.

Perry Central went to work soon after the opening whistle. In the 3rd minute Jake Mullis made a move past the Hazard defense, and crossed the ball into the box where Dagen Combs played the ball down to Zack Miller. Miller then deposited the ball past the goalie (1-0).

A few minutes later, John Watts and Dagen Combs hooked up on a 1-2 combination. Watts hit Combs in the middle of the field, and Combs then broke down the defense. Watts picked up the pass for a one-on-one goal (2-0).

Early in the second half, the Commodores went up 3-0 as Dagen Combs picked up a rebound off the post for the score. The final goal of the game came off a deflection from the post hit a Hazard player and went in (4-0). The 4-0 score would hold as the final, giving Perry Central the Black Gold Cup trophy.
