  • Andrew Drone led all scorers with 21 points Tuesday night as the Gallatin County Hawks edged Carrier Mills 52-46.
    The Wildcats led the entire game until Dane Hish hit a three-pointer with 5:23 seconds left in the game.  Hish's basket put the Hawks up 45-43, a lead the Wildcats just couldn't catch back up to.
    "He (Hish) wasn't hitting much in the first half of the game and we were able to back up on Drone," Carrier Mills-Stonefort head coach Mark Motsinger said. "Our post did a pretty good job on Drone tonight though."
    The Hawks blew out the Wildcats Saturday night during the championship game of the Greater Egyptian Conference tournament 68-24, in which Drone came up big with a whopping 32 points.
    "We wanted to redeem ourselves after Saturday night's loss," Motsinger said. "We had a few days to work on our offense and it really showed tonight."
    The Wildcats were led in scoring by Slayden Figg's 15 points, with Cameron Taborn scoring 12, Josh Bailey nine, Dalton Summers seven with Darren Betz adding three.
    Hish followed Drone in scoring for the Hawks with 13 points, Patrick Lowe had twelve and Zach McGuire chipped in eight.
    The Wildcats will be back in action at this weekend at the Benton Invitational Tournament, as will the Hawks at the Nashville Shootout.
