  • Snow forces more postponements

    More snow hit Perry County Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, forcing more postponements of area sports events.

    The first-round games of the Tell City girls basketball sectional were postponed from Tuesday to Wednesday.

    Perry Central’s freshman basketball game at Paoli was postponed Monday and has been rescheduled for Saturday at 10:30 a.m.

    The semifinals and finals of the eighth grade boys PAC basketball tourney at Pike Central, in which Tell City was scheduled to participate, were called off Saturday for the second week in a row.

  • Tell City stops Pike Central

    TELL CITY—Tell City held Pike Central to 28.3 percent field-goal shooting to beat the Chargers 72-53 in PAC boys basketball Friday.

    The Marksmen also won the rebound battle 36-25.

    “That’s the one thing I’ve been asking our players all year—to defend and rebound,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “And tonight we finally did it.”

  • Bulldogs fall to Day School

    EVANSVILLE—Cannelton displayed improved defense in a 65-49 boys basketball loss to Evansville Day Friday.

    After giving up a combined 38 points to Eagles’ guards Basel Allaw and Ethan Black in their previous matchup, the Bulldogs held the duo to just 11 points Friday. Allaw was held scoreless on just three shot attempts.

    Day School shot 43.1 percent from the field for the game while the Bulldogs hit 36 percent.

  • PC tops Mitchell; falls to...

    LEOPOLD—Hilarie Hahus and Lavina Schwartz each scored 10 points in the second half as Perry Central pulled away to a 53-38 PLAC girls basketball victory over Mitchell Wednesday.

    The win enabled the Commodores to place second in the seven-team conference with a 5-1 PLAC record. Paoli won the title with a 6-0 record.

    The Commodores led only 22-21 at halftime but broke the game open with hot second-half shooting.

    They hit 45.2 percent from the field overall, including 10 of 14 from two-point range in the second half.

  • Rangers beat Tell City

    TELL CITY—Forest Park jumped to a 16-0 lead and beat Tell City 51-36 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.

    The Marksmen went 0 for 9 from the field in the first quarter and 0 for 2 at the free-throw line.

    They were 0 for 5 on free throws before Mariah Alvey hit one for their first point of the game.

    “We were getting good shots,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “But we just couldn’t knock down a shot to save our lives.

    “Forest Park played man-to-man defense the first quarter and we did a good job running our offense.

  • Perry Central has county's...

    Judging by records and the draw each received, Perry Central appears to have the best shot among Perry County teams at winning a girls basketball sectional this week.

    Cannelton, 11-8 going into its final regular-season game Saturday, has its best record in eight years. So if the Bulldogs had the same draw as they had last year and had to get by only 2-13 New Harmony to reach the championship game of their Class A sectional, they would have the best chance at a title.

  • Froehlich champ, TC takes 5th

    NEWBURGH—Dylan Froehlich won the 215-pound title to lead Tell City to fifth place in the nine-team Castle wrestling sectional Saturday.

    Castle won the sectional with 275 points. Tell City scored 109.

    Froehlich beat Travis Daugherty of Castle 5-0 to raise his season record to 39-0, tying the school record for consecutive victories set by Jeff Casebolt in 1996-97.

  • Eagles defeat Marksmen

    TELL CITY—Ohio County hit 70.0 percent from the field in the second half to beat Tell City 67-59 in boys basketball Monday.

    “We’ve played with a lot of teams but we can’t finish them off because we don’t have the desire yet to lock anybody down on defense,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes.

    He added, “We played pretty decent defense the first half and gave up 27 points. But the second half we gave up 40 points, and there’s not a team on our schedule we can beat giving up 40 points in a half.”

  • Tell City turnovers fuel...

    LINCOLN CITY—Heritage Hills made 23 layups to beat Tell City 62-30 in PAC girls basketball Tuesday.

    At least 11 of the Patriots’ layups came in transition after Tell City turnovers. The Marksmen committed 32 turnovers overall.

    The Patriots also used their quickness to score some layups in transition off defensive rebounds and outlet passes. Or sometimes a Patriot would grab a defensive rebound and take it all the way upcourt for a layup herself, as Lyndsi Woolems did to put the Patriots up 8-4 with 2:46 left in the first quarter.

  • Girls sectional pairings drawn

    TELL CITY—Tell City and Perry Central could meet in the semifinals of the Tell City Class 2A girls basketball sectional next week.

    Sectional pairings for the six-team sectional drawn Monday by the IHSAA gave Tell City a first-round bye.

    Perry Central will play South Spencer in the first game Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.

    The winner of that game will advance to face Tell City in the first semifinal game Friday, Feb. 12, at 5:30 p.m.

    Perry Central has beaten South Spencer twice this season, though once was an overtime game in the PSC Holiday Tip-off tourney.
