Madison Central vs. Lexington Catholic (Boys)

Lexington Catholic High School

Lexington, KY

February 11, 2020


Madison Central coach Allen Feldhaus started the following lineup: 6-4 Jr. Kole Browne, 6-2 Jr. Alex Rogers, 6-5 Fr. Trey Skaggs, 5-10 Jr. Luke Coleman, and 6-1 Jr. Braeden Ray.  Lexington Catholic coach Brandon Salsman countered with 6-3 Sr. Luke Wedding, 6-4 Sr. Peyton Pelfrey, 6-2 Sr. Jackson Smith, 6-2 So. Jack Gohmann, and 6-2 Jr. Ben Johnson.


Madison Central entered the game with an 11-14 record on the road at Lexington Catholic with a 22-2 record.  Mismatch on paper but you can never take an Allen Feldhaus coached team lightly and I will guarantee that Coach Salsman and the Lexington Catholic team did not take the game for granted.  The game certainly lived up to my expectations as Lexington Catholic defeated Madison Central in overtime by the score of 78-75. 


Lexington Catholic took a 35-26 lead at halftime but Madison Central rallied behind 13 points by Kole Browne took a 50-45 lead after three quarters and extended the lead to 55-45 early in the fourth quarter.  Ben Johnson scored 13 points in the final period and took a 67-65 lead on a Jackson Smith layup with 13 seconds on the clock.  However Madison Central scored on a layup by 5-11 8th Grader Kenyatta Hardge with one second left on the clock to tie the score at 676-67 and force overtime.  Lexington Catholic raced out to a five point lead in overtime and connected on eight of 10 free throws to pull out the victory.  There were four lead changes and four ties in this game.


Lexington Catholic shot 47.3% from the field including nine of 23 from the three point line.  The Knights connected on 17 of 20 free throws, pulled down 24 rebounds, and scored 21 points off 13 Madison Central turnovers.  Madison Central shot 55.8% from the field including 11 of 25 from beyond the arc. The Indians connected on six of 12 free throws, pulled down 33 rebounds, and scored 10 points off five Lexington Catholic turnovers. 


Ben Johnson led Lexington Catholic with 42 points including seven three point baskets, seven of eight free throws, three rebounds, and three assists.  Jack Gohmann added 17 points and three rebounds.  Lexington Catholic’s “glue” player Jackson Smith recorded 10 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, and two steals.  Smith was two of three from the free throw line and six of eight from the free throw line.


Kole Browne led Madison Central with 37 points including six three point baskets.  Braeden Ray added 13 points including two three point baskets and seven rebounds.  6-2 Fr. Jaylen Davis recorded 11 points including three three point baskets, three rebounds, and four assists.  5-11 8th Grade Kenyatta Hardge chipped in with four points and eight rebounds.
