        FAIRDALE - A first half of hope turned into a second half of frustration on Tuesday for the Bullitt East Chargers in their showdown with district rival Fairdale.

        Bullitt East played a strong first half, pushing the margin to 10 points and then leading 28-20 at halftime. That lead evaporated in the third quarter and after freshman Trey Rakes tied the game at 51-51 with 4:50 remaining in the game, Fairdale closed with a 12-5 run to win 63-56.

        HEBRON ESTATES - For the first time since the two schools both became members of the 24th District, Southern pulled a sweep on Tuesday, taking both games in a girl/boy doubleheader.

        Despite playing at home, it was slow starts in both games that proved to be too difficult for the Eagle teams to overcome.

        First, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles fell behind 19-9 in the first quarter and trailed 35-20 halftime. Not even a 29-point fourth quarter could rally the Lady Eagles as Southern won 71-62.
