BASKETBALL: Hawks fall to DeSales

-A A +A

 The LaRue County Hawks fell 60-44 in the opening game of the six-team Henry County Holiday Classic.

The Louisville DeSales Colts bolted out to a 10-point lead less than 8 minutes into the Dec. 26 game. The Hawks scored 17 points to DeSales’ 10 in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to offset the deficit.

Senior forward Tyler Howell paced LaRue County with 12 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Junior forward Caleb Sheffer added eight points and four rebounds.

Thomas Harman scored six; Kody Key-Close added four points. Dalton Metcalf, Micah Wiseman and Colby Skaggs rounded out the scoring.


UP NEXT: LaRue County plays Alexandria Bishop Brossart at 1:30 p.m. today in its second and final pool-play game in the Henry County Holiday Classic. The Hawks will also play Frankfort Western Hills, Henry County or Trimble County later today at a time to be determined.
