On Saturday afternoon, the Grayson County Cougars hosted the Breckinridge County Tigers who handed them a 21-point loss.

It was not expected to be an easy game for the Cougars as they faced a star player like Kaeveon Mitchell who averages 21.7 points per game. Mitchell didn’t disappoint, putting up 21 points.

The Cougars briefly led in the first quarter but quickly relinquished the lead. With three of the Tigers’ seniors putting up double figures, the Cougars were never able to recover it. The Tigers successfully widened the gap by 18 points with 39-21 going into halftime.

Two free throws by sophomore Hunter Tomes brought the Cougars within 11 points in the fourth quarter, but that would be as close as they would come.

Sophomore Keegan Sharp led the Cougars with 16 points, followed up by senior Nolan Shartzer with seven points and six points from junior Miles Hornbeck. Final score: 67-46.

The Cougars fall to 4-9 on the season.
