For the first time since 2010, the Shelby Whippets have started the season with a win, a 20-6 win over cross-county rival Madison. Brennan Armstrong led the Whippet accounting for all three Shelby touchdowns running for two and throwing another to Brandon Schneider. Armstrong rushed for 214 yards to lead all ball carriers and passed for 57 more.

For Madison, Kanyon Tackett led the way with 67 yards on eight carries scoring Madison's only touchdown. Tyrell Ajian was held to 35 yards on the ground catching one pass for four yards. Quarterback Tresten Vail went six of 13 for 37 yards. Shelby out gained Madison 373 yards to 177 running 63 plays to the Rams 39. At 1- 0, the Whippets will host Lexington next Friday, while the 0-1 Rams will travel to 1-0 River Valley.
