Southern stuns Tucker

OAKLAND — Southern took over during the second quarter and built a 20-point lead by halftime as the No. 1 team in the Times-News Girls Basketball Poll destroyed the No. 4 team in West Virginia Class A with a 60-30 win over Tucker Saturday in Oakland.

The Rams ran their way to a 14-10 edge in the first, and then created some space in the second to go up 33-13 by halftime. Southern pushed the lead to 44-21 after three and continued to add to it during the fourth.

“We played really good basketball,” said Southern coach Danny Bosley. “Tucker is a very good and this is only the fourth loss of its season. But we controlled the boards on offense and defense and that allowed us to win as big as we did.”

Lauren Francillon and Alicia Roth were Southern’s biggest on the glass, combining for 27 rebounds, 17 on the offensive end alone. Francillon had 16 by herself, with nine coming on offense, to go with her nine points. Roth had 11 rebounds (six offensive) and had a game-high 18 points on four field goals and a perfect 10 for 10 showing at the foul line.

Kamrin Weimer added a dozen points and Kambrie Bosley finished with eight.

Tucker (8-4) was led by Steph Betler’s 12 points.

The junior varsity game went 39-31 in favor of Tucker. Lilly Nestor had 13 in the win and Marley Merrick added 11 in the loss.

The Rams (15-2) will put a 14-game winning streak on the line when they host Bishop Walsh on Wednesday.

Paw Paw    50

PAW PAW, W.Va. — Bishop Walsh found itself in a 15-point hole after one quarter but refused to give in and eventually rallied past Paw Paw for a 10-point win Saturday afternoon.

The Pirates played their way to a 21-6 advantage by the first quarter’s buzzer and led by 13 points, 34-21, at halftime. BW’s fortunes changed during the third and the Spartans outpointed the Pirates 20-6 to take a 41-40 lead into the fourth. The Spartans stretched the lead during the final eight minutes to pick up their eighth victory.

Bishop Walsh had four players with at least 10 points and were paced by Hailey Mock’s 16. Maggie Czapski scored 11 points and Abagail Sensabaugh and Maggie Mathews had 10 each. Sensabaugh had nine boards with her 10 points and Briana Uhl led the team with 13 rebounds.

Hampshire    63

Lewis County    58

ROMNEY, W.Va. — Mary Feaster scored seven of her team-high 16 points in a pivotal third quarter and Taylor Harwood made four big foul shots in the end to help Hampshire hold off Lewis County.

Emilynn Corbin finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, Ericka Gordon had 13 points and seven rebounds and Harwood seven points, seven assists and five steals to lead the Trojans.

It was the sixth Hampshire game, and third in a row, decided by five points or less.

“It was a very hard-fought and close game, like most of our games have been, and the girls just gutted it out,’’ said Hampshire coach Al Straley.

“We started out slow but got our footing by the end of the first quarter, and the big key was our 20-point third quarter. That got us the lead and, although we had been struggling shooting foul shots, we made some key ones in the fourth quarter when we needed them.”

Hampshire (7-8) was 11 for 26 from the line through the first three quarters and 8 of 13 in the fourth.

Brooklyn Perkey had 22 points and Karli Hamrick 18 for Lewis County, which led 15-9 after one quarter and 30-27 at the half. The 20-point third quarter put Hampshire ahead 47-44 going into the fourth.
