  • Oldham County rolls past Central...

    Entering Friday night’s semifinal matchup in the Best in Hoops, Central High School hadn’t surrendered more than 60 points in a game.
    It took the Oldham County Colonels all of three quarters to reach that mark, coming out of the gates firing to jump up 41-33 at the break.
    The Colonel’s pace didn’t slow in the second half either, as the tandem of guards Jacob Kopp and Sam Gruber kept the Yellowjackets at bay with timely plays down the stretch.
    None would be bigger than a clutch 3-point play to break Central’s back in the fourth quarter.

    Despite a 15-point outburst from guard Trevor Burton, North Oldham couldn’t find a way past visiting Elizabethtown, dropping a 50-45 contest to the Panthers. David Levitch, the team’s leading scorer on the season, never managed to find a rhythm, contributing just 12 points on the night — well below his average.
