Three quarters good for Jags against Indians

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — North Laurel tuned up against Madison Central in the G.J. Smith Showcase in its final preseason scrimmage.

Madison Central outscored the Jaguars by 13 points in the first half with the scoreboard cleared at halftime. It was North Laurel that won the second half by two points.

“We won the first quarter and won the second half, we just had a really bad second quarter,” North Laurel coach Brad Sizemore said.

The issues that hurt North Laurel in their first scrimmage, a 71-59 loss to Shelby Valley last Saturday, were the same issues  against Madison Central.

“Their press didn’t hurt us at all. We didn’t have a lot of turnovers. They hurt us on the offensive boards and we missed a lot of free throws,” Sizemore said.

The rebounding struggles are expected for a smaller North Laurel lineup, but the Jaguars are expected to be a good shooting team.

“I’m hoping it’s just early on scrimmage type deal,” Sizemore said of the free throw issues.

Peyton Broughton led North Laurel with 20 points and eight rebounds. Bryson Asher and Chris Miller scored seven each. Sizemore said he was also pleased with what Kyle Jeffers showed in the scrimmage.

“It’s going to be process since we are so young. We’ve played really well both scrimmages. We’ve played a lot of guys too, so a little bit of the scoring is just because we played so many guys to see what they could do,” Sizemore said.

The Jaguars opened the season Tuesday night at Harlan Independent. The next two games are at home against Riverside Christian Thursday at 8 p.m. and Oneida Baptist Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
