    Fern Creek 68 Fairdale 65

    Two Louisville 6th region teams at Fern Creek's Senior night went toe to toe like a heavyweight fight the way basketball is fun to watch. Crowd got their money's worth and both teams are going to come away with positives to take. Fern Creek jumped out early, but the way Sullivan shoots for Fairdale there is not a lead they can't come back from. They were down 17 in the first half and still managed to take a 1 point lead briefly in the 2nd half.

    FC is stumbling to the finish line. I still think they're very dangerous

    Seems to be several other teams around the commonwealth doing the same thing.

    I agree that the Tigers have not looked the same of late compared to how they looked winning the KOB, but tonight's win over Fairdale should not cast any negative doubt on how they are trending. Fairdale like 5 or so other 6th regions teams are just tough to beat. There is some depth at the top of the 6th and Fairdale is squarely in that mix of very solid teams.
    They were 12-1 heading into this game since the LIT and the only loss was to Butler on the road by 5 points in a game they lead much of the way. Butler is leading the pack and the favorite for the 6th title based on the regular season, but both Fairdale and Fern Creek are threats.
    It took a really good game from Wales who scored 28 and solid game from both Price and Wickliffe to beat Fairdale which is the key for a long run by the Tigers. Those three all need to be playing their best, but if they are they do become dangerous like you mentioned. It took a solid game to beat Fairdale last night, so in that aspect it was a upturn for Fern Creek to end the season on that note.
