There was no love lost in a battle of unbeatens that was the highlight of the Harlan County Men’s Church Basketball League during the Valentine’s weekend schedule on Feb. 13.

Putney Bible Church proved to be a challenge for New Covenant Cawood Church of God, keeping it close until New Covenant pulled away for a 59-48 win to stay unbeaten and to move into sole possession of first place in the league.

Games continue each week at the Harlan County Christian School Gym at Putney Bible Church. Start time for Feb. 20 will be 8 a.m. for makeup games from a previous snow day. Visit the league’s Facebook page for more information.
