The Barren County High School Trojans outscored Greenwood 17-12 in the fourth period Tuesday night to pick up a hard-fought 59-56 victory.
“It was close throughout almost the entire game,” said Barren County coach Warren Cunningham. “However, we trailed for most of the second half. We didn’t take the lead until the last two minutes of the game.”
The game went back and forth early. The Trojans trailed 17-15 at the end of the first period, but rallied to take a 30-28 lead at the intermission.
Charley McCoy led Barren County with 19 points on the night. Wade Coomer tallied 16 points and pulled down nine rebounds. Barrett Billingsley scored 11 points and Ben Leftwich had eight points and 12 rebounds. Bo Hubbard scored five.
“At times, I thought we played well defensively. However, we’re still having too many breakdowns,” Cunningham said.
“Offensively, we shot 40 percent from the field, but you have to give Greenwood credit. They did a good job of making us shoot over them.”
Glover’s big play leads Glasgow over Monroe County
Bree Glover scored on a rebound basket of a missed free throw with less than 30 seconds to play Tuesday night to help the Glasgow High School Lady Scotties knock over Monroe County, 56-53. The win pushes the Lady Scotties to 19-6 on the season and 4-2 in District 15 play. Monroe County falls to 13-8 and 2-4 in district play.
“We had to play with some composure last week (in the All “A” Classic) in Frankfort,” said Glasgow coach Justin Stinson.
“I think we’re beginning to mature, beginning to grow up. And then you’ve got Elli Bartley, playing 32 minutes for us, having to handle the ball a lot because Bree had to set out. We kept battling and when everything in the gym tonight seemed to be going against us, we maintained a pretty level head.”
The score was tied at 15 at the end of the first period, but the Lady Scotties rallied to take a 30-24 lead into the locker room. Monroe County came back in the third period, thanks in part to six points from Reagan Turner and four points from Kelliemae Polston, to take a 41-40 advantage into the final eight minutes.
“I am so proud of the way our kids off the bench played. We have kids that hardly give us many minutes having to play six to eights extended minutes per half,” Stinson explained. “Kaylyn Hale, Skyler Burd, Allie Chapman, those kids stepped up and helped keep us close.”
Glover led Glasgow with 19 points. Shalika Smith scored 11 and Ashley Smith had 10. Emily Alexander and Chapman scored four points each, while Hale and Bartley chipped in with three points each.
Lauren Turner had 18 points to lead Monroe County. Reagan Turner added 13 points and Kayla Murray had seven. Polston tallied six points with Kelsey Kirkpatrick getting five and Kelsey Johnson scoring two.
Sara Wilson and Ashley McGeorge scored one point each.
