Edmonson County senior Logan Lindsey, the Wildcats' leading scorer returned last night with 18 points after missing several games on the injured list, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Butler County Bears as they fell 67-57 to their district foe.
Butler County came out of the locker room to begin the third quarter with a 31-25 deficit but quickly turned that around with a 13-0 run that wiped out the Wildcat lead not only for the third, but for good as the stunned Wildcats never recovered.
"We had a good feeling going in at halftime, it was probably the best half of basketball we'd played all season," said Assistant Coach Bart Weaver. "The scary part is, we're only up six and we're playing so well. The difference in the ballgame was the way Butler came out with that energy and passion to start the third quarter and we didn't have it."
The Bears outscored the Wildcats 23-11 during the quarter, took the lead at 33-31, and never looked back as Butler County led the rest of the way.
In addition to Logan Lindsey's 18, Chaz Wilson added 11 points and 9 rebounds, J.T. Vincent scored 10 points and grabbed 8 rebounds, Dalton Decker added 6, Carey, Elmore, and Clemmons each added 3, and Tucker Cole scored 2 points.
Edmonson County is now 2-13 on the season and is scheduled to take on Trinity on the road this Friday in a girl/boy doubleheader. Tip off is scheduled at 5:30 for the girls. The WildcatsLive crew will not only broadcast the audio stream but will also offer the first live video stream of the game that will be broadcast on the Edmonson Voice's Facebook page.
