The Pulaski County boys basketball team fell to Salem on the road Tuesday evening, 67-59. The main culprit in the loss was Spartan Ethan English who scored 36 points on the night. Owyn Dawyot added 11 for Salem who upped its record to 9-4 on the season, 3-2 in the River Ridge District. Pulaski Co. falls to 6-8 on the season, 1-4 in RR.
The Cougars led at the half, 32-29, but an 18-6 third quarter run by the Spartans pretty much decided the issue. Pulaski Co. was led by guard Hayden Gray with 24 points. Peyton Blackburn and A.J. McCloud both scored nine. Pulaski Co. was able to stay in the game as long as the three-point shots were dropping. Gray hit four and Blackburn three.
