It took more than 28 hours, but Central Hardin’s 5th Region reign finally came to an end.
The Bruins, who had won four consecutive region titles and five of the last six, saw a chance at a fifth straight slip away as the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles rallied for a 6-5 victory Tuesday night in the region quarterfinals at Central Park.
“They’re a quality ball club,” Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson said. “They kept battling. You have to tip your hat to them. The ball just didn’t bounce our way tonight.”
