WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (1/30/13) - The WCHS Trojans improved to 14-9 on the season with a pair of victories last week, following their disappointing loss in the All “A” Classic Regional final. Webster will host district-rival Union County Friday night in the second game of a boy/girl doubleheader. The contest will also feature annual basketball Homecoming activities between games.

Webster County 65
Trigg County 53

For the second time in eight days, the Trojans clawed Trigg County to begin a two-game winning streak last Tuesday. WC had beaten the Wildcats in the opening round of the All “A” Classic Regional Tournament on Jan. 16. Webster out-scored Trigg 40-30 in the second half to bust open a close game and prevail with the victory.  

A quartet of Trojans scored in double figures with Kyle Hayes’ 16 point leading the way. The senior guard canned 10-of-11 free throws and added five rebounds and five assists. Dan Boswell and Logan Prow both finished with 13 points while Boswell pulled down a game-high nine rebounds and Prow added six boards and four assists. Mason Roland was also in double figures with 12 points along with four rebounds and three steals.

The Trojans raced out to a 16-12 lead at the first break but saw the visiting Wildcats scratch their way back in the second quarter with a 11-9 scoring advantage to trim the lead to 25-23. The see-saw battle continued in the third quarter with no team able to gain more than a two point lead. When the period ended, WCHS was clinging to a slim 41-40 advantage.

That set the stage for the final eight minutes when the Trojans poured in 24 points behind the hot shooting of Hayes, Prow and Boswell. J. D. Newton added eight points and six rebounds in the victory while Max McMain chipped in with two points, followed by one point from Madison Melton. Webster owned a 34-26 rebounding advantage and nailed 19-of-26 free throw in the contest.

• The young Trojans jumped on visiting Trigg in the opening six minutes and never let up, posting a 53-31 win. Zac Shoulders and Max McMain led the assault with 13 points each while Jon Stubblefield finished with seven points. Ben Brumfiel added six points, followed by five from Colten Durrance and three points from Shawn House. Jeremy Garrett, Cole Hazelwood and Zach Pugh picked up two points each.

Webster County 61
Livingston Central 35

The Trojans continued their impressive play last Thursday night with a convincing win over the Cardinals in Salem. It was the WCHS defense that took the spotlight in the victory, holding the Cardinals to eight points in the entire second half. Webster’s man-to-man defense in the first half wasn’t quite getting the job done against the hot-shooting Cardinals, so Coach Jon Newton switch to a zone defense at halftime and it completely shut down the LCHS offense, while forcing 16 Cardinal turnovers.

The score was tied 14-14 at the first break but the Trojans used a 6-0 run to open the second quarter and gain a 31-27 lead at intermission. Dan Boswell scored six of his team-high 14 points in the period. He also had two rebounds and three steals. Webster went on a 12-5 run in the third quarter and then put the game away in the final eight minutes with an 18-3 scoring advantage.

Logan Prow added 11 points, four rebounds and three assists while Kyle Hayes added 11 points and three rebounds. J. D. Newton finished with nine points and four boards while Mason Roland added eight points and three steals. Cole Hazelwood, Max McMain, Zach Pugh and Zac Shoulders all finished with two points each.

Webster enjoyed a good shooting night, going 23-for-36 from the field and 13-of-21 at the free throw line. Livingston, which began the game red hot from the field, managed just two field goals in the entire second half.

• In jayvee action, Webster County posted a 56-37 win over Livingston behind a very balanced scoring attack. Jon Stubblefield led the way with 10 points, followed by nine points from Colten Durrance and eight points each from Shawn House and Jeremy Garrett. Ben Brumfiel added seven points, six points from Zac Shoulders. Max McMain added five points while Robert Daugherty finished with two points and one point from Cole Hazelwood.

• In boys’ freshman action, Webster dropped an overtime heartbreaker to district-rival Henderson County 41-33.

Jon Stubblefield led the Trojans with 13 points while Cole Stubblefield finished with 12. Shawn House added six points and Trevis Bell added one field goal. The young Trojans rebounded with a 25-15 victory over Crittenden County behind 14 points from Jon Stubblefield. Cole Hazelwood added six points, three from Trevis Bell and two points from Toby Felker.
