    GREENSBURG Elizabethtown couldn’t finish off its surprising postseason run.

    The Panthers got into another crazy tangle with Bardstown, and once again, the Tigers came out on top. In the first meeting, Elizabethtown had a 20-point lead. In Tuesday’s Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament championship, the Panthers faced a 20-point deficit. But both times, they ended up on the wrong end.

    GREENSBURG The Elizabethtown Panthers have made a habit of starting slow this season, but they’ve learned it’s more important how a team finishes.

    And the Panthers have been closing out games lately.

    After trailing by as many as three in the first quarter, Elizabethtown used a strong second quarter to pull out to a 10-point lead en route to a 59-44 victory over the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament semifinals Monday at Green County High School.

    When he woke up this morning following his Lady Panthers’ 53-52 loss to host Marion County in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament final Saturday night, it’s a good bet Mudd felt the same way as he did then.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...
