  • Hanging in there

    NEW CASTLE - Things may have been going a bit easy for the South Oldham Dragons.

    Coasting along with a 10-point lead with just over two minutes to play, the Dragons almost let Lexington Sayre come back before regrouping to win 66-60 in the opening round of the Henry County Invitational Tuesday.

    "We made it a little too interesting," SOHS coach Steve Simpson said. "We can't put two good halves together right now."

    SOHS led by as many as 18 points before Sayre fought its way back into the game behind the red hot shooting of forward Quinn Schwartz.

  • A late winner

    BUCKNER - Late or not, Eric Dunlap's tip-in of his own missed shot at the buzzer was the game-winner Tuesday as the Oldham County Colonels beat Nelson County 62-60.

    "It might have been late, but a win is a win," Dunlap said. "It bounced right back at me. I was trying to get fouled and when I missed I knew I had to attack the basket and get a hand on it."

    The tip-in left Nelson County stunned after the Cardinals led through much of the game only to fall behind to a furious OCHS comeback in the final four minutes.

    "It goes for such a great cause, we always enjoy doing it," OCHS coach Gary Forrest said. "Plus, it's a chance to come and see some pretty good games."

  • Going to class

    GOSHEN - The steep learning curve of playing without their top two players continued for the North Oldham Lady Mustangs Monday in a 46-42 loss to Gallatin County.

    NOHS has been forced to open the season without starting guard Emily Crutcher, who had her tonsils removed last week, and forward Erin Overcash, who tore ligaments in her ankle. Both are expected to be out another two weeks.

    "We're the walking wounded right now," NOHS coach Nancy Martin said. "Pretty much 85 percent of our scoring in on the bench and will be for the next two weeks."
