Keavy survives tough test from Colony

Sechrest leads way for Colony girls

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Keavy got a 35-point night from Micah Anders and needed all of them in a 43-42 win at Colony Thursday.

It looked like Keavy would pull away in the first quarter behind 13 points from Micah Anders. They did open a double-figure lead before Colony started to rally behind its defense. It also helped that Trenton Osborne got hot, scoring six of his nine points in the second quarter. Colony cut the lead to five points three times in the second quarter, but could get no closer.

Travis Hundley would continue the Colony rally in the third quarter with six of his team-high 17 points. When Hundley scored inside with two minutes in the third quarter Colony was within 29-26.

It would get closer and again it was Hundley. He scored three times on offensive rebounds in the fourth quarter. A putback with 4:38 to play made it a 35-34 game. Landon White answered for Keavy with a three-point play to keep his team in the lead. Colony wouldn’t go away and had a chance to tie the game in the final minute. A driving layup by Shawn Haymaker with 55 seconds had Colony within 43-40. After a missed shot by Keavy, Bryce Parker fired a three-pointer that would have tied the game. Although the shot looked good, it rolled in and out.

With 24 seconds, Keavy missed at the foul line. Hundley scored on breakaway layup with 16 seconds for a 43-42 score.

Colony wouldn’t get a chance to tie with Anders getting the ball and able to run out the final seconds.

Girls game

Colony 27, Keavy 19

After a tight first quarter and two lead changes in the second quarter, Colony pulled away for a 27-19 win.

Meghan Sechrest scored 15 points to lead Colony, including four straight baskets as they began to pull away.

Keavy took its first lead at 6-5 when Molly Shell banked in a shot to open the second quarter. Shell led all scorers with 17 points.

Hannah Hinkle gave Colony the lead for good when she grabbed a long rebound and sank a jumper from the foul line.

Sechrest took over from there with eight unanswered points, including two foul line jumpers.

Another 8-0 spurt by Colony in the third quarter pushed the lead to 16 points. Keavy outscored Colony 12-4 from there with eight points from Shell, but couldn’t catch Colony.
