MORLEY - Even after a lopsided loss to Scott County Central, Bell City coach Carl Ritter found some satisfaction. "We won the JV game, and anytime you win any game at Scott Central, that's something," said Ritter after Friday's contests. The junior Cubs' 55-50 overtime win didn't set the tone for the rest of the night. Their varsity counterparts fell behind 24-9 after one quarter, and the hosts piled up a 100-37 win.
