Miscues cost Raiders in loss to Kenton

Growing pains are a necessary evil for any young basketball team to experience. Benjamin Logan’s girls basketball team found that out the hard way Tuesday night against visiting Kenton.

Turnovers and a lackluster offense allowed the Wildcats to capitalize on an inexperienced Raider squad and grab a 50-32 non-league victory.

“Turnovers were a factor the whole night,” said Ben Logan head coach Donnie Sosby. “It really snowballed on us. Then we started standing around on offense and we can’t do that.

Ben Logan (0-2) was plagued by 28 turnovers, most of which came in the second half. That allowed Kenton (1-1) to do a lot of scoring in transition.

“We’re young and our confidence got down,” said Sosby. “We can’t allow that to happen. They have to learn to move on to the next play. That’s just part of growing up.”
