Pulaski County passes test posed by Cardinals, 81-62


Somerset —

And it was the tandem of Wiggington and Goodin leading the way.
Wiggington drained three treys in the first half of play, on his way to 18 points in the opening half.
Goodin meanwhile tallied eight points in the first quarter, but went to the bench with 7:47 remaining in the second period with his third foul of the contest.
Still, Taylor County was able to come back from that 9-0 hole to take its biggest lead of the night over PC — 23-16 late in the first period.
A Taylor Gover three-pointer trimmed that deficit to 23-19 at the end of the first stanza, but there would be much, much more to come from the Maroons.
With Goodin on the bench saddled with those three early fouls for the remainder of the first half, Pulaski County took advantage against Taylor County playing without one of its stars.
Another three-pointer from Gover knotted this one up at 27-27, and when Blake Burton completed an old-fashioned three-point play, PC went back into the lead for good leading the Cards 32-29.
A Kody Johnson conventional three-point play extended the margin in the Maroons favor to 37-30 late in the first half, before PC went into the break with a 40-34 advantage.
“Those two kids — (Caleb) Wiggington and (Quentin) Goodin — are very good players,” stated Gover. “The Wiggington kid — I didn’t think he was going to miss a shot there in the first half. He was shooting lights out early. We knew going in however those were the two kids we were going to have to focus on and pay attention to them. In the second half, we picked up our defensive intensity and did a much, much better job on both of those guys.”
Leading Taylor County by that six-point margin at the half, the Maroons broke this one wide open in the third period, and it was at the defensive end of the floor, as well as the play of an inspired Spencer Laign that carried that way.
