H.S. HOOPS: Ballard tops Central in OT

It took overtime to decide the outcome when a pair of top-ranked teams met up Wednesday in Louisville.

Ashton Feldhaus had 26 points and Larryn Brook had 21 points as No. 3 Madison Central fell at No. 6 Ballard (17-2), 70-63. The loss was just the third of the season the Lady Indians (14-3).

The game featured 13 lead changes and 11 ties. Neither team ever led by more than seven points.

“We played well,” Central coach Robbie Cooksey said. “We missed a few shots and some free throws here and there. We had a chance to win the game. I was proud of our kids.”

Central shot just 38 percent from the field, but hit nine-of-19 three-point shots. Feldhaus was six-of-nine from three-point range and also had nine rebounds and three blocks.

Central had a one-point lead with 17 seconds left. Ballard’s Tearra Banks was fouled moments later and hit one-of-two fouls shots to tie the game.

Brooks got off a halfcourt shot just before the buzzer, but the would-be game-winner wouldn’t fall.

Banks, who committed to Austin Peay, finished with 33 points and 13 rebounds. The senior center was nine-of-13 from the free throw line and did not commit a foul in the victory.

“I think we played well enough to win,” Cooksey said.

Heather Hinkle had seven points and four rebounds, Bailey O’Bryan had three points and one rebound, Shadae Bosley had two points and seven rebounds, Hailey Christian had two points and Aryn Singer had two points and one rebound.

Bosley, who was guarding Banks, and O’Bryan both fouled out for Central.

Ballard jumped out to quick lead in overtime and out-scored the Lady Indians 13-6 in the extra period.

Central is set to return to action Saturday at home against Casey County. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
