“Bowling Green is a quick aggressive team, they pick up full count, and they score off the turnover,” coach Harold Tackett said.
In the first game the revamped Cougars matched up against the just as athletic Purples from Bowling Green. The game’s pace moved at a breakneck speed with each team racing to score as quickly as possible. Twin Lancaster blew past several defenders each time, with Torin Graham easily getting open looks, but despite this the Cougars of Logan County fell in the first exhibition match 60-51.
“We wanted to use our athleticism to our advantage,” coach Tackett explained after the game.
In the second game LCHS lacked a little bit of size against last years Region Three Champions Daviess County but managed to use their athleticism to force the Panthers into a style they weren’t used to. The Cougars snatched the lead early and would not give it up the entire game and held on to a 64-60 win.
“Another exciting summer with a lot of improvement and looking forward to an exciting season,” coach Tackett said.
The two games are the last games until the Cougars open up the season for real at Hopkinsville Nov. 29th. The first home game where fans will get to see these blistering fast Cougars will be against Warren East, Dec. 2nd.
