    Tell City will face Tecumseh in the battle for third place at 5 p.m. All Tuesday games will be played at Tell City.

    Perry Central Coach Matt Carter was not satisfied with his team’s defense in Friday’s first-round win over Corydon.

  • Braves hold off Tell City for...

    TELL CITY—Hurt by Adam Westerman and Robb Clifton earlier in the season, Tell City held them in check Tuesday.

    But other Tecumseh players stepped up to hit key shots as the Braves beat the Marksmen 66-56 for third place in the eight-team PSC Holiday Classic boys basketball tourney Tuesday.

    Westerman hit 7 of 8 from the field in the regular-season meeting against the Marksmen, including 5 of 6 from three-point range. And Clifton came off the bench to hit four key field goals in that game.

  • Hot PC tops Panthers

    TELL CITY—Perry Central hit 67.6 percent from the field to beat North Harrison 68-56 in the first round of the PSC Holiday Classic boys basketball tourney Friday.

    The Commodores also hit 17 of 19 free throws for 89.5 percent.

    “Offensively that’s probably our best game of the season, except for the turnovers (18),” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter.

  • FTs key Tell City win

    TELL CITY—Tell City hit 27 free throws to beat North Harrison 57-50 in the first round of the PSC Holiday Classic boys basketball tourney Friday.

    The Marksmen missed 16 foul shots, though, and had another attempt taken away by a lane violation.

  • Losing local businesses hurts...

    When a Perry County business ceases operations, it affects our local economy in many ways.

    Obviously the loss of jobs and taxes provided by the business hurts. But local sports leagues are also adversely affected by losing a sponsor and source of donations.

    Take for example William Tell Woodcrafters/Swiss Plywood, which told its employees earlier this month it would probably close by Dec. 31.

  • Perry Central stifles Marksmen...

    LINCOLN CITY—Perry Central got off to a hot start from the field and played stifling defense on Tell City scoring leader Lauren Goffinet to beat the Marksmen 45-38 in the PSC girls holiday basketball tourney Monday.

    Perry Central finished second in the four-team, round-robin tourney with a 2-1 record. Tell City was third at 1-2.

    The Commodores played basically man-to-man defense but double- or triple-teamed Goffinet every time she got the ball. She entered the game with a 25.1-point scoring average but was held to 11 points.

  • Cannelton’s defense...

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s defense made it hard for Cloverport to get a shot off as the Bulldogs won 52-14 in girls basketball Saturday.

    The Aces committed 10 turnovers and attempted only one shot in the first 51⁄2 minutes as they fell behind 5-0.

    They finished the first half with 21 turnovers and 2 for 15 field-goal shooting, allowing Cannelton to build its lead to 23-6.

    Fifteen of the Aces’ 37 turnovers for the game came on steals by Cannelton.

  • Tell City, PC girls each 1-1 in...

    LINCOLN CITY—Lauren Goffinet and Hilarie Hahus had the hot hands as Tell City and Perry Central beat South Spencer in the PSC girls basketball holiday tipoff tourney Saturday.

    Goffinet scored 22 points, including two three-point baskets, as Tell City beat the Rebels 45-38 in the first game of the round-robin tourney.

    She scored 10 points in the first quarter as the Marksmen jumped to an 18-13 lead and led the rest of the way.

    Emily Dauby added eight points for the Marksmen.

    Junior guard Christen Jessee led South Spencer with 18 points.

  • Tell City girls outswim Raiders...

    HUNTINGBURG—Chelsea Malone won two individual events and a relay as Tell City beat Southridge 102-77 in girls swimming last Thursday.

    Southridge is the defending PAC champion and was second in the 14-team Jasper sectional last year. But Tell City Coach Mike Page said the Marksmen’s victory wasn’t really an upset. “We’re very evenly matched, and I think they had a few girls out sick.”

    Malone won the 50-yard freestyle in 26.12 seconds and the 100 free in 58.90.
