Eagles Suffer Tough Loss at Home


Thursday night, LCA boys’ basketball took on 11th region rival Scott County, and it did not go so well. The final score was 96-58. The Eagles stayed with the Cardinals in the first quarter. In the first couple of minutes, the lead changed hands several times. As the second quarter started, LCA stayed within single digits, and then Scott County started to pull away. LCA went into half-time down 18 points, 46-28. Hoping to rally and score some big points in the beginning of the second half, the Eagles started with the ball, but it did not go as planned. After the Cardinals made two free throws on a technical foul, LCA was be down 20 points. At the end of the third quarter, a little hope came after an and one bucket by Conor Harrison and a three pointer by Will Hacker, cutting  the lead to below twenty. Shortly after these points, came another big run by Scott County to close out the fourth quarter. At the end of the third LCA was down 74-42. As the game continued Scott County would continue to increase their lead until the deficit became too large for LCA to recover. It was a rough lost, but the team is taking it in stride. Zeke Grier, 11,  shows hope for the next time the two teams will meet. He says with confidence, “We will figure it out, guarantee you that.” The night’s leading scorer was Scott County’s Michael Moreno who had 30 points and went 6-7 from behind the 3-point line. LCA goes to 4-1 record.
