H.S. HOOPS: Indians cap Senior Night with win big win over Covington Catholic

MADISON COUNTY — The Madison Central Indians (23-5) came out of the gate on fire then finished strong to defeat Covington Catholic 78-58 Friday.

The win was the 500th for Coach Allen Feldhaus and sent seniors Dominique Hawkins, Ken-Jah Bosley, Daniel Parke, Hunter Stocker, Chris Conner, Zach Jarvis, George Walker and Quan Taylor out winners in their final home game.

“This was a good effort tonight. Playing a top 25 team and to win by 20 and sending off the seniors the right way and winning my 500th game and getting that out of the way, it was a good win,” Feldhaus said.

Central jumped out to a 19-1 lead in the game’s first five minutes with all five starters scoring.

The Colonels finally got on track and cut the Indians lead down to 28-11 at the end of the first quarter, much of which occurred after Hawkins went to the bench in foul trouble.

Covington Cath began to chip away at the lead in the second quarter and scored eight of the final 10 points of the quarter to cut the lead to 39-32 at the half.

In the second half, the Indians cranked up their defensive pressure and once again extended their lead and put the game out of reach.

“Our defense was a lot better. We just got in a little bit of a lull there in the second quarter, but we played a lot better in the second half,” Feldhaus said. “We got good play from everybody. Ken-Jah shot it really well. Daniel Parke played really well, he took it to the rack a couple of times and knocked down a couple shots and made some good passes.”

The Indians also got some quality minutes from their bench, especially from Sam Jones and Walker.

Bosley led the way for the Indians with 24 points. He also had four rebounds.

Taylor finished with 15 points and eight rebounds, Hawkins added 10 points and eight assists while playing only 21 minutes, Parke had eight points and six assists, Walker also had eight points, while Stocker had six points and eight rebounds, Jones finished with four points and three rebounds and Jarvis had three points.
