Campbellsville advances to 5th Region finals

Jordan Percell and Thomas Downs did the majority of the scoring and Campbellsville made the majority of its shots in a 76-58 victory over Elizabethtown in the 5th Region semifinals at Nelson County.

Percell had 22 points and Downs added 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Eagles had a relatively easy time Sunday afternoon. They made 51 percent of their shots and needed only one three-pointer to get past E-Town. A lot of Campbellsville's damage was done from the free-throw line. The Eagles were 35-for-48 from the stripe, while E-Town was just 12-for-25.

Campbellsville will play North Hardin in the region finals Tuesday.

Girls' highlights

Boone County 32, Ryle 30 (9th): Sydney Moss, daughter of NFL star Randy Moss, scored 18 points to lead the Lady Rebels to the region title.

Ryle's Dana Crittendon hit a three to cut Boone County's lead to 32-30. The Rebels then missed the front end of the bonus.

Ryle had three shots — a two-pointer and a pair of three-pointers — to tie or take the lead in the closing seconds, but missed them all.

Boone County, rated No. 6 in the state going into the tournament, will play Bowling Green in Thursday's opening round of the Sweet Sixteen.

Butler 48, Bullitt East 43 (6th): The Bearettes scored only two points in the first quarter before recovering to take the lead at halftime and going on to win the region title.

Megan Cuerton scored 10 points for Butler and was the only player for either team to hit double digits.

The Bearettes scored 18 points in the second quarter and led 20-19 at the half.

They'll play Henderson County in the first round of the Sweet Sixteen.
