The Barren County High School Trojanettes blinked last Tuesday night as BCHS dropped a hard-fought 65-60 basketball decision to visiting Logan County. The game was a battle for 32 minutes with neither team gaining much of an advantage until the closing moments of the fourth quarter.
“The game went back and forth the whole time,” said Barren County coach John Butler. “Logan County is a tough matchup for us. They got a transfer (Abbey Hinton) over the Christmas break and they’re a different team with her in there. They’re probably the biggest team in the region.”
Barren County will be back in action on Friday when the Trojanettes visit rival Glasgow High School. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
“It was tough for us, but I thought we competed. We battled. We played hard. We just got beat, to be honest with you,” Butler said. “Generally, in the last two or three minutes of the game, it boils down to who makes the plays, and they made a few more plays than we did.”
Logan County opened the final period of play with three straight points to take a 49-46 advantage.
But Kennedy Logsdon nailed a 3-pointer for Barren County to tie the game again. Kaitlyn Wyatt scored on a layup to give the Trojanettes a 51-49 lead, but the Lady Cougars came right back to tie the game again at 51.
Over the next 90 seconds, Barren County’s Deanie Pedigo converted two free throws to post the Trojanettes to a 53-51 advantage with 4:15 to go in the game.
But that’s where Logan County took over.
