Lakers make statement in signature victory
In Feb. 5 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

Coach Willie Feldhaus’ Russell County Lakers picked up a huge win over Madison Central last Friday night, defeating the visiting Indians 58-51 at Laker Gym.

The Lakers, now 17-2, were led in scoring by senior Bryon Ellis with 17 points on 7 of 13 shooting. He also had five rebounds and five assists.

The Indians, coached by Allen Feldhaus, Jr., fell to 14-7 on the year with the loss.

“I think we got back to where we were earlier in the season,” Feldhaus said of his Lakers. “We got contributions from seven kids and even Jordan Best came in and gave us some good minutes also.”

The Laker coach said it was good to get back in the win column after a disappointing loss to district rival Cumberland County last week.

Coach Feldhaus said that playing his brother’s team was just another game to him and his team.

“They’re (Madison Central) my second favorite high school basketball team in the state of Kentucky but tonight we wanted to win,” he said. “Our kids showed up.”

Junior Bryson McFall was also in double figures for the Lakers with 11 points. Robbie Bell scored nine points while both Zach Carney and Lucas Justice scored eight points each. Adam Justice scored four points while Jordan Best added one point.

The Lakers held the Indians to 37.5 percent shooting from the field for the game while Russell County hit 19 of 41 shots for 46.3 percent.

The Lakers also scored 12 second-chance points in the victory. Keshawn Simpson scored 18 points to lead the Indians.

In the junior varsity game, the Lakers picked up a close 3-point victory, 60-57, over the Indians. Martin Cross scored 15 points for the Lakers while Jordan Best had 11 points.

Tyler Robertson scored 10 points while Kyle Burchett had eight points.

Both Tra Taylor and Taylor Hutchison scored six points each. Logan Smith scored three points and Hunter Best had one-point.

In the freshman contest, the Indians downed the Lakers, 50-34. Hunter Best scored a dozen points while Blake Aaron had seven points.

Cesar Prudente scored six and C.J. Bray had four points. Both Kody Pickett and Ethan Pike scored two points each in the loss.
