Girls, boys stay on roll



It was another good week in Cougarland as both the boys’ and girls’ teams won both games they played last week.

The boys were on the road at Jenkins, then traveled to Powell County over the weekend to take on the Pirates. The Cougars were just too strong for Jenkins (1-16) and their depth was evident as they downed the struggling Cavaliers 89-30 to improve to 15-4 on the season.

Letcher Central led 26-5 after one quarter and 46-13 at the half. The Cougars placed 12 players in the scoring column, led by Josh Proffitt with 18 points. Close behind was freshman Logan Johnson with 16 and Jordan Reynolds with 14. Devon Blair scored nine, Cole Cornett eight, and Bryan Roark had seven. Kenneth Ballou, Cory Stewart, and Charlie Banks each had four, Daniel Brock and B. Cornett each had two, and James Gose had one.

The Cavaliers were led by Sexton with nine, followed by Stewart and Stanley with eight each. Bailey tossed in five.

On Saturday night, the Cougars took on a Powell County team that, much like Jenkins, has really struggled this year. Powell has also won only once and it would not get any better as the Cougars came to town on a roll and left with 80- 31 win.

It was another game that saw a lot of younger players get lots of playing time and some much needed experience. Thirteen players hit the scoring column and the Cougars defense held Powell County scoreless in the second quarter while scoring 23 points and building a half-time lead of 44-6.

It got worse after the break as the Cougars improved to 16-4 on the season. Their win streak now stands at four after losing to Perry Central.

The Cougars were led in scoring by Cole Cornett with 12 points followed by Roark and Proffitt with 11 each. Johnson and Banks had 10 each, followed by Reynolds with eight, Stewart and Ison with four each, and Whitaker, Ballou, Collins, Brock and Blair with two each.
