2nd Region Week 8 Review
Week Eight Review:
Its all about Madisonville-North Hopkins and Webster County. Everyone else is far behind. Teams are getting closer, but not enough to pull down either team. Here are the week 8 rankings:
1. Madisonville North Hopkins – BGP #8
Season record: 18-3
The Maroons had an uncomfortable win at Lyon County 71-64, but easily defeated both Dawson Springs and Hopkins County Central to extend their winning streak to 7 games. They will have a tough matchup at Owensboro before heading to Union County to close out the week.
2. Webster County
Season Record: 18-2
Webster County breezed past both McLean County and Union County on their way to their 5 straight win and 8 of their last 9. They will play at home against Caldwell County and then Henderson County. The Henderson game should be very interesting.
3. University Heights
The Blazers only had one game this past week, the first round of the All A State Tournament against region 1 foe Murray. It did not go well for anyone on the team. UHA only scored 33 points in a poor showing and a 27 point loss. The team will try to rebound as they travel to Tiger gym to face Hopkinsville next.
4. Lyon County
Season Record: 11-8
The Lyons gave Madisonville-North Hopkins all they could handle, but still fell short 71-64. They took the loss out on Ballard Memorial scoring 100 points since Dec of 2008 and beating the Bombers by 28. They will play Dawson Springs, Trigg County, Caldwell County, and Calloway County in a very busy week of play.
5. Henderson County
Season Record: 12-9
Henderson won both their games against Indiana teams this past week and that will set up a big game against Webster County on Friday. They also will play Daviess County this week as well.
6. Christian County
Season Record: 7-12
Christian County lost to Bowling Green in a not so close game, but then routed their crosstown rival Hopkinsville 67-52. The up and down year continues for the Colonels. They play Owensboro Catholic, Fort Campbell, and Lincoln County this week.
Season Record: 9-13
Hopkinsville easily defeated Fort Campbell, but then suffered an ugly loss to their rival Christian County. They will have to play University Heights at home on Friday and try to keep from going 0-4 to their intown rival schools.
8. Crittenden County
Season Record: 9-10
Crittenden defeated Fort Campbell in a close game but couldn’t hang on with Paducah Tilghman from region 1. The Tornado defeated the Rockets 78-60. Crittenden will play Trigg County, Union County, Livingston Central, and Mayfield this week.
9. Caldwell County
Season Record: 9-10
The Tigers defeated Trigg County 82-73, but turned around and lost at McLean County 78-63. Things don’t look good for the Tigers in their next 3 games, Marshall County, Webster County, and Lyon County.
10. Union County
Season Record: 7-11
Union County lost to Hopkins County Central in overtime, and then lost big to Webster County. They recovered a bit by winning a close game at home to Trigg County. The win snapped a 6 game skid.
11. Trigg County
Season Record: 9-12
The Wildcats had a very tough week losing 3 games, all of them less than 10 points and could have been won. Losses to Caldwell County, Dawson Springs, and Union County dropped them from their .500 record. They play Lyon County and Crittenden County next.
12. Dawson Springs
Season Record: 7-11
The Panthers have a two game winning streak after defeating both Trigg County and Frederick Fraize. They will play Lyon County, Community Christian, and Hopkins County Central next.
13. Hopkins County Central
Season Record: 4-15
Not sure what to make of this Storm team. After losing their first 13 games, they have now won 4 of 6 and that includes a big upset of Union County in overtime, at Union. They did get waxed by Madisonville, but that was expected. They will play McLean County and Dawson Springs next.
14. Fort Campbell
Season Record: 6-12
Fort Campbell’s woes continue as they are going the opposite direction of Hopkins Central, they have lost 4 in a row and 11 of their last 12. They hope to stop the bleeding against Livingston Central this week.

The Cardinals losing streak stands at 19 games after losing to Christian Fellowship. They will try again to snap this losing streak against Fort Campbell and Crittenden County.
