Cougars Stumble

Bullitt Central’s high-octane offense is getting a lot of attention, but at the same time, the team is giving up a lot of points.

That was the case again on Friday as North Oldham scored 104 points. It is the fifth time this season that the Cougars have given up more than 100 points in a game.

Against North Oldham, Bullitt Central trailed 60-32 at halftime and never could make a serious run in the second half.

The Cougars got 25 points from junior T.J. Flener, but that was the only Cougar to score in double-digits.

Bullitt Central will celebrate homecoming this week when Valley visits on Friday to face both teams.
