As the regular season winds down, the Williamstown Demons had a tough stretch, playing five games over the course of a week.

The Demons started by falling 51-45 at home against Frankfort on Feb. 10.

“It was probably our second worst game of the year as far as executing and the way we played,” coach Stacey May said. “The only positive was getting Wes Philpot back and how he played with a lot of energy. I thought he single-handedly kept us in the game at times. We’re trying to get back on track like when we played Walton-Verona.”

On Feb. 11, the Demons traveled to Carroll County, losing 78-76 in double overtime. Williamstown had a chance to tie or win the game at the end of the second overtime, but Zack Anglin’s shot just missed off the rim.

“They had a chance to win in regulation and didn’t,” May said. “Our players played extremely hard in the second half and the overtimes.”

The Demons played their third game in a row on Feb. 12, falling to Gallatin County 83-57 on the road.

For their fourth game of the week, Williamstown won 78-60 on Feb. 14 at Augusta.

“We shot a really high percentage,” May said. “We shared the ball and we’re not capable of playing much better. We’re starting to prepare for Simon-Kenton and the district tournament. We’ll try to end our season with a couple wins and get a game plan together to try to advance to the region tournament.”

Against Bracken County on Feb. 16, the Demons lost 65-53.
