Panthers fall at home to Wayne County, 62-57

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

KNOX CENTRAL — Knox Central was without the services of guard Matt Barger Tuesday, but still managed to almost knock off 12th Region foe Wayne County.

The Panthers had a chance to tie the game with :15 remaining, but couldn’t come up with any points allowing the Cardinals to pick up a slim 62-57 win.

The loss snapped Knox Central’s two-game win streak while dropping the Panthers to 5-2 on the season.

“It was a good learning game,” Evans said. “We will get a lot of positives from this game. In the long run, this will be good for us.

“Matthew does more for our team than the coaches and players realize,” he added. “He’s our best communicator. He just does a lot of things you don’t realize until you don’t have him doing it. We asked the younger guys to help and do some things they’re not used to doing and this will help us in the long run.”

The Cardinals took charge early with their three-point shooting. Rodney Woods’ squad finished the game with seven made three-point attempts while hitting 13-of-14 shot attempts from the free-throw line.

Wayne County 62, Knox Central 57

Wayne County (62) — Shelton 25, Woods 5, Perkins 6, Blevins 10, Gehring 8, Stearns 2, Gardner 8.

Knox Central (57) — Merida 19, Adams 13, Garrison 4, Wilburn 4, Hensley 8, Marsee 9.
