? ?    In a big week for action between girls’ teams the previously unbeaten North Harrison Lady Cats had their 8-0 record blemished with a tough 59-58 overtime win by the host Floyd Central Lady Highlanders and the Borden Lady Braves won 62-46 at Lanesville over the Lady Eagles.
    In boys’ action, the Silver Creek Dragons barely escaped from Ramsey with a 60-56 Mid Southern Conference victory over the host North Harrison Cougars, and the Lanesville Eagles rolled 68-25 over Medora to help celebrate their homecoming.

Floyd Central 59,
North Harrison 58
    It took an overtime period to decide the matter, but it looked for a while like it would be decided early in the game Saturday afternoon.
    The Lady Cats took an early 14-2 lead, but the Lady Highlanders scored the last seven points in overtime to win the game. The Lady Cats had scored the first three goals of the overtime, but were outscored 7-0 the remainder of the extra period.
    Brigid Morrissey scored three points on a traditional three point play with 1:41 left in the overtime. Camry Hinton scored with 1:11 left, getting the Lady Highlanders within 58-57. Megan Rookstool dropped in two with 24.7 left on the clock, and that was all that was needed for the win.
    “We made some errors late in the game,” admitted North Harrison girls’ coach Hal Pearson. “Floyd Central did what they had to do late in the game.”
    A host of North Harrison players did the early damage, with Sasha Grangier, Kacey Cox, Kayla Lambert, and Wynn Shroyer doing the damage for the Lady Cats in the 14-4 start.

?    A two vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 150 in Galena last Tuesday afternoon claimed the life of a Salem man and injured a Greenville man.
    According to information from the Indiana State Police Post in Sellersburg the accident occurred around 2:05 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
    A press release from the ISP stated that the preliminary investigation showed that  a black  Toyota Camry driven by Patrick Best, 57, of Greenville, crossed the center line at the edge of Galena and struck a semi-truck being driven by Randy Purlee, 58, of Salem.
    The impact and Purlee’s attempts to avoid the accident resulted in his truck, which was carrying sawdust for his employer, Koetter and Smith Wood Shavings, to careen off the roadway into a ditch, where it overturned and caught fire. Purlee was trapped inside.
    Purlee’s trailer and load of sawdust was dumped over the roadway which blocked the highway to traffic for the remainder of the day.
