Lakers beat Metcalfe for first district win
In Jan. 8 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

The Russell County Lakers improved to 12-1 on the season after thrashing district rival Metcalfe County, 75-43, on Friday night in Laker Gym.

The Lakers again had four players in double figures to Coach Willie Feldhaus’ liking and outscored the 1-9 Hornets 16-5 in the third quarter to put the game out of reach.

“It is a good district win,” Feldhaus said. “This game kind of scared me; you know our kids have played a lot of games since they’ve been off for Christmas.”

“(Metcalfe) had two really big kids that we hadn’t gone up against,” he said. But the Lakers stepped up and shut the Hornet post down for much of the game.

 “I don’t know that we had the energy early in the game that I wanted,” he said. Once the third quarter started the Lakers used the big home crowd to their advantage.

Feldhaus said his team picked up the pace in the second half and finished strong and really found that burst of energy that he said had been lacking earlier in the game.

“Our two leading scorers (Bell and McFall) go out with early foul trouble and basically have to set out the whole second quarter,” he said.

Others stepped in and competed hard in their place.

Lucas and Adam Justice, Zach Carney and Tyler Robertson as well as others were able to keep the Lakers ahead and maintain a 10-point halftime lead.

The Lakers were led in scoring by Junior Bryson McFall with 15 points.

Robbie Bell had 12 for the Lakers while Lucas Justice and Zach Carney both had 11 on the night.

Carney also had 11 rebounds for Russell County, giving him a double-double.

Adam Justice scored eight points for the Lakers while Tyler Robertson had seven points. Bryon Ellis tallied five points while Kyle Burchett chipped in four points.

Tra Taylor also added a bucket for the Lakers.

The Lakers shot 51 percent from the field for the game while the Hornets only managed 33 percent shooting.

The Lakers also had success from off the bench with 21 points coming from subs. Metcalfe only managed five bench points on the night.

The Lakers outscored the Hornets in the paint as well, 33-28, and scored 20 points off Metcalfe turnovers.
