Warriors no match for the Shooting Stars PDF Print E-mail

?    Coming off of a six point victory against Southwestern the night before, Scottsburg was looking to pick up another road win to get their season back on track.  Bedford North Lawrence knew beforehand what it was going to take to win the February 7 match-up, and were prepared to do that from the beginning.  The Warriors are quite frequently the smaller team in their games, as was the case in this one, and the Stars planned on exploiting that and using it to their advantage.
    The major flaw for Scottsburg throughout this game was not their lack in size compared to BNL, which was magnified with Ben Everett being injured, but was the non-existence of interior defense.  The Stars would execute on easy lay-up after easy lay-up, putting points on the board without challenge.  Freshman Max Clemons would single-handedly keep the Warriors in the game during the first half, scoring 11 points off of three three pointers.  Scottsburg pulled within three points, 27-24, with 21 seconds left in the half, when they would turn the ball over twice and allow the Stars to score, ending all momentum going into the break.
    The turnovers that closed the second quarter were deflating for the Warriors, as the Stars shut down Scottsburg’s main threat in Clemons, and steadily pulled away for the 62-45 victory.
    The Stars would have the rebounding advantage 33-24 on the night, which was no surprise.  If the Warriors were to look at a shot chart they would see that BNL racked up the majority of their points on the block with wide open layups.  Clemons would lead the Warriors with 15 points, as Landon Duncan and Ason Hacker would lead the Stars with 15.

Warriorettes fall to Greensburg in Sectional play, 52-37 PDF Print E-mail

?     Intense is probably the best word to describe the Scottsburg Warriorettes sectional game against the Greensburg Lady Pirates.  Greensburg came into the game as heavy favorites with an 18-2 record to the Warriorettes 3-17 record.  The Warriorettes looked to stop Greensburgs’ “double trouble” team of Sara Welage and Chas Lecher.  They did a nice job of it for most of the game, but in the end, turnovers and sloppy play which have been haunting Scottsburg all season, got the best of them as their season ended in a heart-wrenching loss 52-37.    
    The game started off very physical and didn’t change from there as the officials let the teams play calling very few fouls.  In the first quarter, points were hard to come by as stellar defense and sloppy play from both teams made for very few baskets.  The physical nature of the game got the crowd pumped up as they joined in with cheers adding to the sectional atmosphere.  With the score tied at two points apiece, the Lady Pirates went on a small run.  They scored the last six points of the quarter and held the lead 8-2.

    Scottsburg police are seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining information on the perpetrator in the city’s most recent armed robbery.
    Shortly after 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 7, Sgt. Joe Nicholson and Sgt. Brian Hall were dispatched to Coonie’s Tobacco Store close to Scottsburg’s downtown area. The store had been robbed by a young man armed with a pistol, they were told.
    Officers were joined by Deputies Don Campbell and Joe Johnson and Reserve Deputy Lonnie Combs of the Sheriff’s Department.
    A store employee described the robber as a white male about 5-6 in height and weighing perhaps 140 pounds. He had reddish hair, the woman recalled, and had a stubbly beard or goatee. He was wearing a dark green hoodie, gold hoop earrings and blue jeans.
    After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the man ran from the store in an unknown direction.
A check of the neighborhood resulted in one young man being questioned, but he was eliminated. Two people said they might have seen the man as he left the store, but no suspects could be located by the officers.
    Scottsburg police would like to learn if anyone else in the area might have seen the man around the store or on nearby streets. Chief Delbert Meeks said people can leave information by calling the station at 752-4462 or by dialing the 24-hour Tip Line at 752-2235.

One-car wreck in Scottsburg a ‘straight-up’ case for police PDF Print E-mail

    When Scottsburg Patrolman Travis L. Rutherford pulled up to a one-car accident on Friday, February 6, near Lake Iola, he was treated to an unusual sight.
    A white Firebird was suspended nearly 90 degrees by means of a guide wire leading to a nearby utility pole. All four of the car’s tires were off the ground, noted. Ptl. Rutherford, and the car was still running and in reverse gear.
Ptl. Rutherford soon learned that no one was inside the car. Some witnesses said a white male ran from the scene.
Efforts by Barger’s Wrecker Service and staff of the Scottsburg Electric Department allowed the vehicle to be lowered to the ground as the electrical crew took down the wire. Ptl. Rutherford learned from the license plate that the car was owned by an Elizabethtown, Ky., man.
    According to the case report on the incident, the officer was able to locate the name of the owner’s employer. That firm was contacted but could give no information except that the man was assumed to be in Scottsburg visiting friends.
No one has come forward yet to claim the car, which was impounded.
