In a game that was closer than the score would suggest, the Marion County Knights defeated the visiting Bethlehem Eagles, 69-56, on Saturday in the fifth annual Autism Classic.
The game was tight throughout, but the Knights (10-6) put the game away in the final minutes. Marion County Coach Montrelle Irvin said he told his team at the half that he thought they would wear down the Eagles (12-4).
“That’s where our conditioning and hard work comes in,” Irvin said.
The Marion County Lady Knights capitalized on the turnovers created by their defensive pressure to put away the Prestonsburg Lady Blackcats, 67-46, in the fifth annual Autism Classic on Saturday.
Sisters Katelyn and Samantha Daugherty combined for seven three-pointers, including five in the first half, and 24 points. The sisters were named co-MVPs of the game.
I received a call from Stephen at the Enterprise office, and my first thought was “What did I mess up?”
When he got on the phone, I was told this was one of the early deadline weeks (office was closed Monday).
“I knew that, but thanks for calling” was my response. That’s what I said. What I thought was, oh crap, forgot all about that!
So, here I sit, five days after turning in my last column, wondering what to write about.
