Henderson's Rebounding a Key in Win Over Trojans

men troj1WEBSTER COUNTY, KY (12/19/12) - After leading by two points at halftime and 34-31 late in the third quarter, the WCHS Trojans went ‘ice cold’ scoring and saw Henderson County take the lead for good during the first meeting of the two rivals Friday night in Dixon.

Henderson (6-1) went on a 27-7 run from that point on to take control of the game and earn a 59-47 victory. Webster earned a 34-31 lead with 3:43 left in the third period on a jumper by Dan Boswell. But that would be the extent of the Trojan lead as the Colonels scored seven straight points to make it 36-34, six of the points coming on offensive rebounds.

Henderson held a huge 38-15 rebounding edge in the victory.

“They (HCHS) stayed on the boards with second, third and sometimes fourth shots until they scored. I knew that was going to be a key in the game and it certainly was,” noted WCHS head coach Jon Newton.

During the Henderson run, Webster managed just three field goals. WC senior Kyle Hayes and sophomore guard Mason Roland led the Trojans with 13 points each. Hayes drilled a trio of 3-pointers while Roland added one ‘trey’. J. D. Newton came off the bench to add 12 points and three rebounds.

Webster’s leading scorer, Logan Prow, suffered fouls problems early in the game and sat the bench most of the first half. Averaging over 15 points per contest, Prow was limited to just three points.

“I thought Kyle and Mason did a great job of picking up the scoring with Logan on the bench,” Newton added. Webster jumped on the Colonels in the first quarter with a 14-12 lead with Hayes netting eight points in the opening eight minutes in the see-saw battle. Roland added a pair of layups in the second quarter on Henderson turnovers and he had nine points by halftime as the Trojans grabbed a slim 29-27 advantage. Dan Boswell added four points while Max McMain completed the scoring with two points.

Both squads felt a bit of the district rivalry pressure as Henderson committed 23 turnovers while the Trojans had 20.

Henderson (5-0) also won the junior varsity contest 51-31. Jake Fritz led the young Trojans (2-3) with 12 points.

Webster will participate in the Bethlehem Tournament hosted by Meade County Dec. 20-22.
