    A pair of technical fouls seemed to take the energy out of the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Saturday night.

    After falling into a big hole against LaRue County, the visiting Lady Bulldogs rallied to slice their deficit to 12 points on a 3-pointer by senior guard Kristin Shonkwiler with 50.7 seconds left in the third period.

    But the John Hardin bench was called for two technical fouls 21 seconds apart, and the Lady Hawks scored eight points to take control en route to a 61-44 win over their 5th Region rivals.

    LEXINGTON— After last Saturday’s 77-70 loss at Georgia in their Southeastern Conference opener, one had to wonder how the Kentucky Wildcats would respond.

    If the last two games are any indication, the Wildcats are going to be just fine.

    The LaRue County Hawks realized the Hart County Raiders weren’t at full strength, so they might have been thinking a win was going to come easy.

    It didn’t. At least not at first.

    The Raiders jumped out to an 11-6 lead, prompting LaRue County coach Paul Childress to call a timeout where he challenged his team to start playing better on both end of the court.

    LaRue County responded just as Childress hoped, taking the lead less than 2 minutes later and rolling to a 77-43 victory over the visiting Raiders in an 18th District game Friday night.

    The Hawks used a 21-0 run over the second and third quarters to build a 51-20 lead. Junior Kyle Meredith sparked the run with seven points and six players scored during the spurt.

    Don’t look now, but Alysse Bishop and the rest of the Central Hardin Lady Bruins are starting to get their swagger back.

    The senior guard scored 10 of her 16 points in an early flurry and the suddenly surging Lady Bruins won a 17th District game for the second straight night Friday by routing the visiting Fort Knox Lady Eagles, 78-27.

    Once Central Hardin got in a zone Friday night, it was out of its deficit against the visiting Fort Knox Eagles.

    The host Bruins, who trailed by eight points in the first quarter and were still down two with less than 4 minutes left in the third period, switched to their 2-2-1 zone defense and frustrated the Eagles, allowing them to rally for a 69-60 victory over their 17th District foe.

    “We made the switch to our zone, which got us some easy layups and a couple of steals,” said Central Hardin junior guard Jared Cromartie.

    Knowing what was on the line Friday night, LaRue County twin seniors Lyndsay and Valerie Whitlock weren’t about to let the visiting Hart County Lady Raiders beat them for the second time this season.

    Trailing by 10 points midway through the third quarter, the Lady Hawks rallied behind the play of their team’s only seniors to pick up a 53-50 win in a critical 18th District game.

    The Lady Panthers’ defense surely did in Friday night’s physical 17th District game.

    Jordan Daniel didn’t have the best shooting night Thursday night. But the Central Hardin senior guard hit a clutch shot when her team needed it most.

    With the visiting Lady Bruins leading by four with less than 3 minutes left, Daniel calmly sank a 3-pointer from the right wing to push the lead to seven and Central Hardin held on for a 53-42 over John Hardin in a crucial 17th District game at the Dawg Pound.

    North Hardin put the basketball in the hands of its steady point guard.

    And everyone got out of Trevino Coney’s way – Elizabethtown players included.

    With his team down by a point, Coney found a hole in the defense, drove the length of the court and hit a game-winning layup with 3.3 seconds left to lift visiting North Hardin to a 77-76 victory over 17th District rival Elizabethtown.

    Coney stayed patient and went to work.
