The young Breds were no match for the strength and experience of the senior-laden Colts as the veteran team drove to the basket to score almost at will.  
Big men Dylan Pohl and Brandon Hager scored 16 of the 25 point first quarter total.  Many of these baskets came at point blank range as they muscled the Breds inside.  
The second quarter was equally disastrous as the Breds managed only six points for the quarter while West Jessamine stretched the lead to 42-20 at the half.  
The Colts used nine players in the first half, seven of them scored, as their deep bench and overall team experience was more than Harrison County could handle on this night.  
In the second half, the Thorobreds did not give in, but could only gain on the Colts when Coach Damon Kelley substituted in the fourth quarter.  
In all, 12 of the West Jessamine 15 players scored on the night and they all played.
