Lakers drop away games to Metcalfe, Cumberland

In Jan. 10-16, 2008 issue
The Mighty Lakers played two tough teams in Metcalfe County (11-1) and Cumberland County (5-9) on back to back nights last week, losing both in completely different fashions.

Last Thursday, Coach Willie Feldhaus took the Lakers to Metcalfe where they were met by a team who was coming off their first loss (63-62) to a Washington D.C. team in a tournament in McCreary County.

The Metcalfe County team, who has shown great strides in improvement over the last few seasons, gave the Lakers a hard way to go, with the final score being 77-41.

The Lakers had a terrible shooting night, hitting only 16 of 59 shots for 27 percent and hitting only 2-13 three-point shots for 15 percent.

Lakers Bryon Ellis, Robbie Bell and Adam Justice all scored eight points each for the Lakers while senior Timmy Coffey had six points. Senior Josh Popplewell had three points.

Four Lakers scored two points each in Jordan Best, Zach Carney, Kyle Burchett and Bryson McFall.

The Lakers did have nine steals on the night, but were outscored 27-6 in the first quarter and 29-4 in the fourth quarter to seal their fate.

Robbie Bell and Adam Justice led the Lakers with seven rebounds each.

The following night against Cumberland County the Lakers came to compete, upping their field goal percentage from the night before to 42 percent, making 20-48 shots. Junior Bryon Ellis led the Lakers with 11 points on 3-12 shooting while Timmy Coffey scored 10 points on 5-12 shooting along with five rebounds.

Both Bryson McFall and Robbie Bell had eight points for the Lakers while Kyle Burchett had six points.

Lucas Justice had four points while Adam Justice put up two points.

The Lakers were led in rebounding by Robbie Bell with nine. The Lakers were outscored 17-13 in the final quarter after hanging with Cumberland County for the entire game.
