Photos: Holmes Girls Hold Off Cooper in Overtime as Regular Season Ends
It took overtime, but Holmes was able to hold off Cooper in a battle between two of the Ninth Region's top girls basketball teams.
A late 3 by the visiting Jaguars with under ten seconds left sent the game into extra time, where the Bulldogs were able to pull away at home.
With the 68-59 win, Holmes improves to 23-4 on the year while Cooper drops to 19-6.
Both teams head to their district tournaments next week. Holmes takes on Beechwood (9-15) on Tuesday night in the opening round of the 35th District at the Tigers' home in Ft. Mitchell. Cooper takes on Boone County (10-19) on Tuesday night at the Rebels' home in Florence.
