When Medora’s Jarrett Fortner made two free throws with 3:36 left in Tuesday’s basketball game against South Decatur, it left the Hornets trailing 51-41 and gave coach Andrew Evertts hopes his team could draw closer and somehow pull out a win.

That, however, didn’t happen as the visiting Cougars outscored the Hornets 9-2 down the stretch and went home with a 60-43 win to spoil Medora’s Senior Night.

“We’re still not settling for moral victories, but I’m not too upset, really,” Evertts said. “We were down 10 with three minutes left. We probably aren’t supposed to play with a team like that. We’re a two-win team, but I thought we played hard again. I’m liking the direction we’re heading right now.”
