Lakers finish off Allen County-Scottsville
In Feb. 25 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

Russell County ended the regular season 19-3 with a 72-57 victory at Allen County-Scottsville Friday night and will now turn their focus to district tournament play this week.

All five Laker starters had big games, led by senior Robbie Bell’s 19 points on 7-12 shooting, and Russell County used a 19-10 run in the third quarter to put the homestanding Patriots out of contention.

“You obviously want to go into district play feeling good and even though we’ve played three games in 15 days due to snow, we came out and responded well,” said Laker coach Willie Feldhaus following the win.

Feldhaus, the region’s coach of the year for the second time in as many seasons, said his squad moved the ball well against a tough Allen County-Scottsville team that defeated fourth region power Glasgow earlier this season and allowed themselves easy shots throughout the ballgame and as a team to shoot 57 percent from the field.

“I was very satisfied at how we executed offensively,” he said.

He credited his team’s defense in the first half of play with not allowing the Patriots to get into an offensive flow and holding Scottsville to just 42 percent shooting on the night.

Senior Zach Carney, who scored 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and senior Bryson McFall, who had 14 points, also helped the Lakers to victory as Russell County scored both inside and on the perimeter. The Lakers scored 42 of their points from the paint and converted 15 points off of the Patriots’ 15 turnovers.

Seniors Adam and Lucas Justice both had eight points each while senior Kyle Burchett, freshman Tyler Robertson and sophomore Hunter Best each tallied two points each for Russell County.

“That’s important for us,” Feldhaus said of the balanced scoring attack. “Truthfully, that had kind of gotten away from us some but early in the year we would put four and five people in double figures and we were close to that again tonight.”

Allen County –Scottsville was led in scoring by Caleb Carver with 16 points and Chris Ogles with 15.
