  • Chinn, Tell City pull away from...

    CANNELTON—Andy Chinn scored 30 points in the second half as Tell City pulled away from Cannelton for a 95-68 boys basketball victory Saturday.

    Chinn, a 5-foot-10 senior forward-guard, was held to two points on 1 for 7 field-goal shooting in the first half.

    That helped Cannelton hold the Marksmen’s lead to single digits most of that half.

    The Bulldogs pulled within six, 48-42, on Dillon Powers’ inside basket and free throw with 5:35 left in the third quarter.

  • Bulldogs defeat Eagles

    EVANSVILLE—Cannelton used three-point shooting to regain the lead in the second half and beat Evansville Day 64-56 in boys basketball Tuesday.

    Cannelton took the lead early, jumping ahead seven points in the first quarter.

    The Bulldogs still led 23-19 at halftime thanks mainly to Tyler Aud, who scored 13 of his game-high 20 points in that half.

    The Eagles broke through the Bulldogs’ defense in the third quarter, though, tying them with 1:06 left in the period.

    But the Eagles were held to one three-pointer in the second half.

  • Trinity outshoots Bulldogs

    WHITESVILLE, Ky.—Cannelton hit only 11 of 51 shots from the field in a 59-35 girls basketball loss to Whitesville Trinity Monday.

    “It was a very, very physical game,” said Cannelton Coach Jeff Miller. “But we’ve got to do better than that. And a lot of them weren’t bad shots—our shot selection was a little better than most games.”

    “We did hit 12 of 14 free throws (85.7 percent)—that’s a plus.

  • Perry Central boys to rely on...

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s boys basketball team may not have the dominant scorer the Commodores have had in recent years with Aaron Carter and/or Nick Huber.

    But Coach Matt Carter said the Commodores will have more quickness and depth than they’ve had in several years.

    Carter is starting his second year as head coach after five years as the Commodores’ assistant coach.

  • Trojans sink Bulldogs

    OAKLAND CITY—Wood Memorial outrebounded Cannelton 38-22 and beat the Bulldogs 73-52 in their boys basketball season opener Wednesday.

    Cold shooting by the Bulldogs, who looked a little hesitant or nervous in their season opener, didn’t help their cause.

    They fell behind 11-1 before Ethan Herzog scored their first field goal on a 15-footer with 1:03 left in the first quarter.

  • Reitz nips TC in OT

    TELL CITY—Reitz hit 10 of 18 free throws in overtime to beat Tell City 62-58 in girls basketball Tuesday.

    After trailing by 15 points with 11 minutes left in regulation, the Marksmen rallied to tie the score 52-52 on Lauren Goffinet’s three-point basket with 11 seconds left in regulation.

    But Tell City made a couple of turnovers and missed a shot in overtime to fall behind 57-52.

    The Marksmen pulled back within two points on Goffinet’s three-pointer with 0:21 left and again with 2.8 seconds left when Emily Dauby hit the first of two free throws.

  • Tell City should be strong in...

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys swim team should be strong in freestyle races but lacks depth overall.

    The Marksmen have 11 boys on their roster, three fewer than started last year.

    Eight are returning lettermen, but the other three have never swum competitively before.

    The returnees include sophomore Greg Clayton, who placed second in the 500-yard freestyle and fifth in the 200 free in the PAC last year.

    “We’ll be searching for someone to go with him in those events,” though, said Tell City Coach Mike Page.
