Taylor County wins at Marion County 49-40

By Bobby Brockman

Austin Webster scored 13 of his team-high 15 points in the second half as coach Jeff Kidder's Taylor County Cardinals triumphed at Marion County 49-40 on Friday night.

The Cardinals (11-12) wrap up the top seed in the 20th District Tournament and a match-up with cross-town rival Campbellsville on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at Adair County.

Taylor County led 41-40 when the Knights' Vincent Collins hit the first of two free throws for the Knights. But, Webster hit a pair of baskets and Quentin Goodin added four insurance free throws to secure the road win. Goodin finished with 10 for the Cardinals, who played most of the first half without leading scorer Caleb Wigginton, who was saddled with three fouls.

Latrelle Irvin paced Marion County (10-13) with 18 points.
