    The Campbellsville High School Eagles avenged a one-point Feb. 16 loss at Green County with a 70-39 shellacking of the Dragons in the opening game of the Boys’ Fifth Region Tournament on Wednesday night at Nelson County.

    The Eagles sprinted out to a 9-4 advantage and never trailed in posting their 25th win in 29 outings.

    The Dragons (13-15) did creep within six in the second quarter.

    However, an Aaron Schwoebel basket and two free throws around Thomas Downs’ put-back preceded a pair of right-side three-pointers from Myan Rice and the rout was on.
