  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    John Hardin sophomore defensive tackle Matt Elam was a big surprise to the Bulldog coaching staff this season and it had nothing to do with his size.

    The 6-foot-5, 323-pound Elam made a huge impact on the John Hardin defense. He was fourth on the team in tackles with 65, including 52 solo stops. Elam also had 19 tackles for a loss, four sacks and three fumble recoveries.

    North Hardin senior Brianna Woodson and junior Chanel Roberts spent much of the first half watching from the bench with two fouls. But they spent the second half on the floor, terrorizing the LaRue County Lady Hawks.
    Roberts and Woodson combined for 23 points in the second half as the Lady Trojans erased a four-point halftime deficit to post a 49-46 victory Tuesday night at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.
    “We knew they could hold it together,” said Roberts, who finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds. “But we knew we couldn’t foul anymore. We couldn’t hurt the team anymore.
