Lakers down C-ville
In Dec. 9 Issue

The Russell County Lakers improved to 3-0 on the young season as they bested the host Campbellsville Eagles on Saturday night in overtime as junior Blake Aaron netted a career-high 25 points, with 22 of those in the second half.

Campbellsville, one of the better teams in the 5th region, outscored Russell County by 10 points in the second quarter before the Lakers rallied down the stretch to pull out the overtime victory.

 "From a spectator's point of view I'm sure it was a very fun game to watch," said Laker head coach Willie Feldhaus.

"It was one of those games where I look back at it and wonder how we won."

Feldhaus said when Aaron, who also grabbed nine rebounds, stepped up and knocked down perimeter shots in the second half, the Lakers got back into the ballgame rather quickly. Aaron hit six threes on the night.

"After he hit that first one there was no hesitation," Feldhaus said.

"I'm not saying he was wide open on each shot but there was no doubt, after the first one went down, that he was going to shoot. He had a lot of confidence."

Lakers Tyler Robertson and Nick Coffey both finished in double figures as Robertson scored 15 points and Coffey 10, but both key players fouled out early in overtime, prompting Lakers Dustin Pierce and Nick Britt to come in and fill those roles and even hit some key free throws late in the game.

"That was actually the difference in our win, what they did for us in overtime," he said.

"I feel much better about our bench now than I did during the first game of the year."

He said he can visibly see the confidence level of his players elevate as the season progresses.

The Lakers shot 38 percent from the field for the game. Also scoring for Russell County was Barton Mann with six, Britt and Pierce with five each and Martin Cross with three points and three steals.

Both Mann and Robertson grabbed 11 rebounds each in the win. Logan Smith and Lucas Whittle also played big minutes for the Lakers but did not score.

Campbellsville was lead in scoring by Matthew Davis with 24 points while Jordan Percell had 20 points and 11 rebounds.
