Bulldogs close out regular-season play with 64-57 triumph at Taylor County
A five-point possession in the second quarter opened up a close game and spearheaded John Hardin past Taylor County 64-57 on Friday night.
Brandon Price’s lay-up and a foul after the basket set up Jeremy Harness’ only basket, a three-pointer, as the visiting Bulldogs eventually stretched a one-point lead to 10 just before half-time.
In the fourth frame, the Cardinals cut the lead to four on three occasions and three on another only to see Price, a junior All-Fifth Region guard, push John Hardin’s advantage back to six or five and finish with a game-high 28 points.
Caleb Wigginton scored on a hoop and two free throws on assists from Trae Wells and then nailed a three-pointer to put Taylor County within 51-48 with 5:17 left.
However, the Bulldogs hit nine of 10 free throws in the fourth quarter to win their 17 games in 25 outings.
Wigginton and Wells led the Cards (15-12) with 23 and 19 points, respectively.
