Costly turnovers and a poor shooting night cost Oldham County in a 47-42 home loss to Central Hardin Tuesday night.

The Colonels committed 26 turnovers and shot just 50 percent from the free throw line in their second loss in three games.

Five Colonels scored with Ismail Jones leading with 15 points and Jacob Bates posting 10 points. Griffin McLarty added eight points, with six coming in the fourth quarter, and five rebounds while Brandon Johnson had seven.

Central Hardin (16-3) won its fifth straight and made 18 of 24 shots from the stripe and was led by Michael Reed with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

The Colonels (13-6) ended the first quarter with seven turnovers, but made their shots count with a 60 percent clip and a 15-10 lead. OC scored just four second quarter points and continued to pile up mistakes with 16 turnovers at halftime.

Central Hardin hit six free throws to take the lead and Tyler Woodrum’s layup put the Bears up 23-20 at halftime.

Johnson came out of the third quarter with five straight points to give OC the lead again, but another series that included a technical foul on coach Coy Zerhusen took OC out of its groove and Central Hardin regained the lead.

McLarty’s surge in the fourth quarter tied the game at 35-all with 6:20 to play, but the Colonels missed five of their last six free throw attempts as Central Hardin pulled away for the 47-42 win.
