  • Rebels rip Bulldogs

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s boys basketball team accomplished two rare feats Friday, outrebounding and outshooting its opponent from the field.
    But the Bulldogs still lost to South Central 52-27 due largely to their 32 turnovers.
    The Bulldogs edged the Rebels in field-goal shooting 39.3 percent to 37.0 percent and held just a 26-25 edge in rebounds. Still Cannelton Coach Michael Snyder said he thought it was only the second or third time this season they had the edge in rebounds.
