    Friday night proved to be a fairy tale ending for the Fab Five seniors.

    Tied up at 66 points apiece, the Panthers took a timeout with 6.1 seconds to go. The visiting Walton-Verona Bearcats had just erased a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit with a 3-pointer by Tanner Moeves off a screen on the right side of the floor.

  • Ladies fall 47-13 to Bearcats

    The Lady Panthers struggled mightily on offense Friday, posting their lowest output of the season with a 47-13 loss to Walton-Verona.

    However, head coach Paul Stone said he was proud of his team’s defense, especially in the third quarter, in which his team outscored the Lady Bearcats 6-3. “I was proud of the way we came out and played in the third quarter,” he said. “They didn’t give up and came out ready to play.”

  • Track team competes at Mason Dixon

    The Carroll County varsity track team competed in the Mason County Indoor Meet Saturday, Feb. 9. Head coach Joe Creager said the team had some good results and was able to compare times with the University of Kentucky meet two weeks ago.

  • Boys beat Bellevue by 12 points Saturday

    The Panthers hit 54 percent from the field, including 42 percent from long range, in their 57-45 win over Bellevue Saturday, Feb. 9.

    Head coach Carroll Yager said he thought the team looked flat in the first half, due in part to playing a late game the night before and being out of routine on the weekend. But the boys pulled together and won the game as a unit, with all members who got playing time contributing.

  • Ladies smother North with ‘D’

    In the huddle before breaking for the start of the fourth quarter against North Oldham, Carroll head coach Paul Stone told his team, “Defense wins this game.”

    The girls must have listened.

    The Lady Panthers’ defense shutdown the Lady Mustangs late, allowing just six points in the fourth quarter, to win 54-40, on Tuesday, Feb. 5. This was the girls’ fourth win in five games.

  • Carroll falls at Eminence

    The Warriors outscored the Panthers 29-7 in the third quarter to win, 72-66, on their home floor Feb. 4.

    Before the game began, the district rivals demonstrated their sportsmanship and goodwill toward one another. When the captains met at midcourt, Carroll junior Dakota Corbin and Eminence senior Daishon Moore came forward as well. The two student-athletes had been involved in a fight when Eminence visited Carroll on Jan. 26. Corbin and Moore met with the officials and coaches, apologized to one another and shook hands.

  • Carroll wins big over Williamstown, 68-35

    The Panthers outscored the Demons 47-21 in the second half to cruise to a 68-35 victory Friday, Feb. 8 on homecoming night.

    Carroll County ramped up their defensive pressure in the third quarter with a full court press that garnered six steals, as well as an offensive foul drawn by Patrick Booth to help extend their seven-point halftime lead to 18 points.

    The Panthers stayed hot in the fourth, scoring on 11 of their first 13 possessions of the quarter, putting the game out of reach.

  • Girls fall to W’town, 60-39

    The Lady Panthers cut an eight-point halftime deficit to one point with 1:37 to go in the third quarter. Unfortunately for the home team, that was as close as they would get, as the Lady Demons outscored them 22-2 the rest of the way to win, 60-39, Feb. 8.

    “What got us back in the game is we started playing better defense,” head coach Paul Stone said. “We stopped leaving our feet all the time and stopped giving up all those easy baskets until the very end of the third quarter.”

  • Lady Panthers take down Trojans, 58-56

    The Lady Panthers hung on against visiting Covington Latin to win their third straight game Tuesday, 58-56.

    Head coach Paul Stone said his team did a nice job on offense, especially working the ball inside.

    Carroll built a 51-33 lead at the end of the third quarter. The Lady Panthers tried to slow down and run some clock, but that wasn’t their style. They committed some turnovers and Covington Latin hit a few key 3-pointers down the stretch to tie up the game 52-52 with two minutes to go.
