  • Foul trouble, mistakes cost Warriors 2 games

    Uncharacteristic turnovers and foul trouble plagued the Eminence Warriors in a rough, two-loss week.

    On Dec. 13, the Warriors hosted Berea in a game that was close to the end. But fouls sent Brandon Mitchell and Daishon Moore to the bench, and Berea to the charity stripe to seal the win.

    But the game started well for the Warriors, who dominated Berea early. “We were up 14-5 in the first quarter,” head coach Chris Nethery said.

  • Cats turn on the pressure against Panthers

    Austin Dunn coolly released the ball, with a Carroll County defender hot on his heels. Fired from behind the 3-point-line, the ball hit its target.

    The crowd, and Dunn, went nuts, screaming and roaring as the Wildcats clawed their way back from an early deficit.

    It was his third 3-point shot in a row, and part of a second-quarter surge that helped the Wildcats beat the Panthers 69-51 last week.

  • Warriors are learning on the fly

    One game at a time.

    After years of disappointing seasons, Bill Covington said earlier in the season, it’s litterally one game at a time for his Warriors.

    Nine games into their season, the Warriors matched the number of wins from the last two seasons.
    In a long week that featured two hard losses to Kentucky Country Day and Gallatin County — neither of which he was inclined to discuss — the Warriors picked up their second win on Saturday, a low-scoring, 30-25 grueling match against Portland Christian.
