It was a gritty battle all the way to the end, but the Jeffersontown Chargers found a way to better execute in the final two minutes of the game to push them to a 63-56 win over the Wildcats in day two of the Rafferty's Caveland Classic.
Senior Tucker Cole nailed two free throws to give Edmonson County a 56-54 lead with 2:01 to go, but the Chargers took the lead with a bucket and a foul, where they converted the three-point play. They were able to play keep away from Edmonson County and hit all of their free throws down the stretch for the win.
It was another tough loss for the Wildcats who are trying to weather the storm of injuries before district play gets into full force.
Edmonson County was led by Cole, who had 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. Three other Wildcats notched double figures: Dalton Decker had 13 points and 4 rebounds, J.T. Vincent had 10 points and 8 rebounds, and Chaz Wilson had 10 points and 5 rebounds.
Brayden Carey added 6 and Nick Clemmons had 2.
Edmonson County is now 2-11 and will take on Franklin Simpson in the final night of the Classic on Friday, December 29, 2017 at 7:15pm.
