    Bryton Taylor took the in-bounds pass and went the length of the court for the game-winning lay-up to propel Campbellsville past Taylor County 54-53 on Tuesday night.

    The home-standing Cardinals had taken the lead at 53-52 on Lloyd Stotts’ down-the-lane hoop.

    The Eagles (2-0), which opened the season with an overtime win over Henderson County in its own Tip-Off Classic on Saturday, led by six points (16-10) early in the second quarter.

  • Indians outlast Cards 41-35 in...

    Each team found it tough to make baskets from the field, but Adair County hit 18 of its 24 free throws to pin a 41-35 loss on visiting Taylor County on Friday night in Columbia.

    The Cardinals, who dropped to 2-2 overall and 0-2 vs. district foes, fought back from an eight-point third-quarter deficit to take a 35-34 lead on Tevin Webster’s free throw at 1:43.

    Taylor County used a Matt McDonald lane bucket, two free throws each by Lloyd Stotts and Chase Seaborne and two hoops by Webster to go on top.

    “I’m a little nervous to take my uniform off, because once I do it’s over,” Netherton said. “I’m excited we went out so strong. It’s such a great feeling to be able to picture that last hit in my head. That’s going to stay with me forever.”

  • Cards clip highly-rated E-town

    Lloyd Stotts, Tevin Webster and the rest of the Taylor County High School boys’ basketball team either did not get or ignored the memo sent out about what the Cardinals were supposed to do during the 2009-10 campaign.

    Taylor County, picked somewhere just below the middle of the pack after heavy graduation losses, downed Elizabethtown, one of the Fifth Region’s top three teams, 57-52 at home on Friday night for a 2-0 start.
