FRANKLIN FURNANCE - A sign hangs in Green High School's gymnasium that reads “If you can't stand the heat, get out of the Furnace.” On Saturday night, the Greenup County Musketeers not only withstood the heat, they brought a little of their own, too.
With a consistent offense and a stifling defense, the Musketeers were able to take an early lead and never lost it, winning the game 54-40.
“Anytime you go on the road, you deal with some time of adversity,” said Greenup coach Tom Hicks. “And when you go out of state, it makes it even tougher - playing in a hostile environment against a very well-disciplined, well-coached team. I am very proud of the way the boys played tonight.”
The Musketeers, who pushed the ball up the court with urgency for most of the game, were very balanced on offense, with eight players scoring in the game. Tyler Wolfenbarker led Greenup with 13 points, while Mitchell Brown poured in 11, in addition to six rebounds.
