FHS knocks off No. 18 CovCath

By SUSAN RIDDELL State Journal Sports Writer Published:

Will Current was in a generous mood, and that only means good news for the Frankfort High basketball team.

Current dished out 10 assists and would have had more had the Panthers not missed some late layups in a 75-73 win over No. 18 Covington Catholic Friday night at F.D. Wilkinson Gym.

"He should have had 20," brother Chris Current said of Will's assist numbers, which compared to just one turnover. "We missed too many layups and that hurt. He just has this knack for passing."

Frankfort finishes off the regular season at 19-9, but this win was important for two reasons.

One, it was senior night and the Panthers haven't won a senior night in at least four years. Two, the last thing Frankfort needed heading into the district tournament was a three-game losing skid.

"It'll be nice to go into the district tournament on a win for once," said Will Current. "We've had a couple of letdowns recently and we got to send the seniors - including my brother - out on a good note."

CovCath led most of the game but never by much. The Colonels' biggest lead was 10 points in the first quarter, but Aaron Dunaway's jumper with five seconds left in the first half tied the game at 38-38.

The Panthers seized control near the end of the third period with the help of a three-pointer by Will Current, a putback by Myron Moore and a long trey by senior Jared Hack.
