Pulaski County 63, North Hardin 53


Somerset —

After falling behind North Hardin very early 6-2 — the Trojans biggest lead of the night — PC went on a nice run, headed by Gover and Johnson.
Gover drained four three-point baskets in the first half of play, scoring 14 of his 15 points in the opening half.
Johnson meanwhile was on his way to a big night as well with nine early points, but he was forced out of the contest at the midway point of the second stanza with a busted chin, and did not return until late in the third period.
A trey from Gover gave the Maroons their biggest lead of the night late in the first half at 26-12, but the Trojans would claw their way back into this one.
North Hardin’s go-to guy — Ruben Gosa — held to just two points at the intermission — hit his club’s only three-point buckets in the second half of play when Ron Beavers’ club tried to get back in this one.
“Their two bigs — Khalil Rasheed and Tyler Landry — were tough on the inside and then Gosa started making some shots in the second half from long range,” stated Gover.
“That was a great challenge for us, and this was a fun game to play in, in the sense that you get to check to see how you measure up against good competition,” Gover remarked. “You get better from games like this and you learn from them.”
Trailing PC 30-18 at the half, North Hardin scored 24 points in the third quarter alone trimming the deficit to just four points — 46-42 — at the end of three quarters of play.
However, Tyler Goins, Blake Burton, and guys off the Pulaski bench would withstand that flurry.
A Gosa trey to begin the fourth period cut the PC lead to 48-45, but Laign countered that score with his only bucket of the night to ease the Maroons’ advantage back up to five points at 50-45.
