2nd Region Week 10 Review
Week Ten Review:
Madisonville-North Hopkins is a monster and they seem to be clicking on all cylinders. They are without a doubt a top 10 team in the state with a legit shot at winning it all. Henderson County looks like it has overtaken Webster as the number 2 team, but will have to prove that this week before its official. Here are the week 10 rankings:
1. Madisonville North Hopkins Ė BGP #8
Season record: 23-3
Madisonville-North Hopkins keeps on trucking along plowing through whoever they play. This past week, the Maroons dispatched Owensboro Catholic by 40 points, Caldwell County by almost 20 points and an eye opening win against BGP #15 Butler by 20 points. The Maroons have rattled off 12 wins since their loss against John Hardin in early January. They will play 3 home games to finish the season including a game Saturday against University Heights.
2. Webster County
Season Record: 19-4
Webster County lost their only game they played this week. They took a 75-70 defeat at home to Lyon County. This marks their second loss in a row to a region 2 opponent. The Trojans seem to have plateaued and a few of the region 2 teams have caught up to them. It will be interesting game on Thursday at Henderson County. They will play Livingston Central this week as well. For now, they will stay in the number 2 spot.
3. Henderson County
Season Record: 15-10
Henderson split their games this week winning against Grayson County, but losing in a heartbreaker at Union County 68-66 in overtime. The Colonels have no room to dwell on the loss as they have a big game against Webster County on Thursday. If they can pull out the win, they will take over the number 2 spot in the region rankings.
4. University Heights
The Blazers have not played since their 19 point win over Hopkinsville. They will play Christian County on Tuesday this week before going to Fort Campbell and then Madisonville-North Hopkins. If they play their best game of the year, they may have a chance for an upset, but itís a long shot.
5. Lyon County
Season Record: 16-9
The Lyons look real good this week as they took down the regionís number 2 team, Webster County, 75-70. Travis Perry led Lyon County with 23 points and Jackson Shoulders added 16. They have three games this week, Hopkins County Central, Union County, and Clarksville (TN).
6. Christian County
Season Record: 8-16
Christian County season has taken a turn for the worst since we entered 2020. They only have 3 wins so far, and 8 losses, including 2 this past week to Warren Central and Taylor County. They hope to turn their fortunes around against Fort Campbell, University Heights, and Marshall County. They will only be favored in one of those games.
Season Record: 10-15
Hopkinsville split their games this week, defeating Trigg County 69-53, but losing to Warren Central 79-38. They will play Muhlenberg County and Union County this week. There is a good chance the Tigers do not win another game this year.
8. Crittenden County
Season Record: 12-13
Crittenden rebounded from a tough couple of weeks to win both their games. They defeated Community Christian and Dawson Springs. They will play Caldwell County and St. Mary this week.
9. Caldwell County
Season Record: 9-14
The Tigers lost to Madisonville this week extending their losing streak to 5 games. They hope to rebound against an improving Hopkins County Central team on Monday before hosting 3 games against Crittenden, Dawson Springs, and Trigg. Could be a good week for the Tigers.
10. Hopkins County Central
Season Record: 7-16
The Storm easily defeated Livingston Central by 24 points, then turned around and laid an egg against Trinity (Whitesville) losing by 16 points. They will have 2 games this week to make up for it. They will play Caldwell County and Lyon County this week.
11. Union County
Season Record: 9-14
Union County is hard to figure out. They pulled a big upset in overtime against Henderson County, then turned around and lost by 50 points to a 3 win Apollo team. This Union team took a big hit when they lost 3 starters at the beginning of 2020 including star sophomore Kale Gaither.
12. Trigg County
Season Record: 10-15
The Wildcats took losses to both Hopkinsville and Hancock County this week. They will go again at Dawson Springs and Caldwell County next.
13. Dawson Springs
Season Record: 10-14
The Panthers defeated both St. Mary and Frederick Fraize this week, however they lost to Crittenden County. They play Community Christian, Trigg County, McLean County and Caldwell County in a busy week.
14. Fort Campbell
Season Record: 7-17
Fort Campbell snapped their losing streak with a 66-65 overtime win at Christian Fellowship. They play Christian County and University Heights this week.
