Trojans take 3rd place from SHS, 59-48


Somerset —

With Weddle on the bench with those two quick fouls, North Hardin went on that 17-4 spurt, thanks in large measure to the play of  guard  Tyronn King.
King scored  13 of his team-high 15 points in the opening half of play, helping his club roar all the way back for a 31-22 lead at halftime -- a deficit Somerset would not be able to overcome on this particular afternoon.
“We’re still in a learning process, and for us to get through this month and this tournament playing the level of competition that we’ve gone up against and to be 9-4 on the year -- I’m pretty happy about that,” Cothron stated.
Tyson Williams meanwhile was a bright spot in defeat for Somerset, scoring a game-high 20 points while pulling down eight boards.
Weddle  tallied 15 points and ripped down a game-high 12 boards, but it would not be enough to propel Somerset back into the lead after the intermission.
The Jumpers cut the deficit down to four points late in the third quarter, but North Hardin would respond.
Guard Ruben Gosa tallied 10 of his 15 points in the second half, helping the Trojans eventually build up a 53-38 lead late in the contest.
With the loss Somerset fell to 9-4 on the season, but the experience of playing four games in four days is something that Cothron is hopeful his club will be able to build upon over the second half the season as well as post-season play.
“Playing in a tournament like this is good for us, and that’s exactly what I told our kids immediately after the game,” pointed out the Jumper head coach.
Somerset -- now 9-4 on the year -- returns to action this afternoon with a 47th District game on the road at Rockcastle County.
The Briar Jumpers will return to Southwestern on Thursday night for a rematch against the Warriors.
That game is slated to get underway at 7:30 p.m.
NH -- 11 20 12 16 -- 59
SHS -- 12 10 12 14 -- 48
NORTH HARDIN -- King 15, Gosa 15, Sterusky 14, Rasheed 6, Landry 5, Lewis 4.
SOMERSET -- Williams  20, Weddle 15, Gordon 9, Cheuvront 2, R. Dishman 2
