Season ends as Warriors fall short in sectional PDF Print E-mail

    Scottsburg was riding a wave of momentum as they had defeated Madison 76-60 in a convincing fashion the previous night.
    They hoped that wave would carry them past a Greensburg team that knocked off heavily favored Batesville on Friday night, March 6, as well.  The Pirates won their game by outhustling and outsmarting the Bulldogs in every way.  The Warriors on the other hand, won their game by shooting the lights out, and scoring at will.  Scottsburg planned to use that same game-plan in the sectional final against Greensburg.
    As expected, the Pirates came out in a hustling fashion, dominating the Warriors in every category.  Scottsburg went away from the deadly three point shooting that carried them past the Cubs, and didn’t lock down the interior defense either, and allowed Greensburg to pull away.  
    The Pirates would lead by as much as 20 at one point, and would hold a sizeable lead until the fourth quarter, when the Warriors would get no closer than eight points, losing 64-53.  
    The title game was Scottsburg first appearance in a sectional final since 2005, and will likely be a favorite in conference next season as they lose only Tyler Patton to graduation.

    In the early morning hours of March 14 Charlestown Officer Sgt. Richard Wagner assisted the Clark County Sheriff’s Department on a disturbance call in the 7600 block of High Jackson Road in Charlestown.  Upon officers arrival 30 year-old Matthew G. Tilford took off running on foot into the darkness towards the rear of the home and could not be located.  
    Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies determined that Tilford had allegedly made statements to family members that he wanted to conduct harm to himself.  
    Approximately three hours later, at 3:17 a.m., Sgt. Wagner was on routine patrol when he discovered the main entrance gate to the Drive-It-Auto, located at 10509 State Road 62 in Charlestown, appeared to have extensive damage to it. Sgt. Wagner turned around to investigate when he observed Tilford placing an item that was later identified as a circular saw into the front seat of a green colored Nissan passenger car.  
    Sgt. Wagner detained Tilford as well as the driver of the Nissan who was identified as 25 year-old Joshua Brown of Lexington, Kentucky.
