Taylor powers Keyser’s 67-52 victory

PETERSBURG, W.Va. — Lexi Taylor dominated both ends of the floor and received ample support from her teammates to lead Keyser past Petersburg 67-52 in a battle between top 5 schools Saturday afternoon.

Taylor cleaned the boards all night and finished with 22 rebounds, which helped her to 19 points on nine field goals and a free throw. Katlynn Tichnell scored a team-high 21 points and Lexi Carr had another well-rounded performance with 16 points, seven assists and six steals.

Brooke Staggers gave the Golden Tornado eight points and seven assists.

With Keyser taking away most of Petersburg’s second chances by owning the rebound column, the Vikings relied on the hot shooting of Samantha Rohrbaugh to stay close. Rohrbaugh sank seven three-pointers and would finish with a game-high 24 points to help keep her team competitive. Brittani Bible added eight points.

Keyser worked its way to a 17-13 lead after one quarter and stretched it slightly to 31-24 at halftime. The split grew to 16 points, 53-37, after three quarters.

Keyser took the junior varsity game 34-20. Jayna Wilson led the Tornado with 13 points as the jayvees remained unbeaten by improving to 11-0.

Keyser’s varsity is 11-1 and plays a make up game at Berkeley Springs on Tuesday.

Hollidaysburg    46

No. 5 Allegany    43

CUMBERLAND — Courtney Storm rained a three-pointer at the buzzer that lifted Hollidaysburg to a three-point win over Allegany Saturday afternoon and continued a week and a half long stretch of close losses against quality opponents for the Campers.

Allegany’s Kailee Selders hit the Campers’ only three with seven seconds left to tie the score at 43. The Tigers inbounded without a timeout and drove the length of the floor to find Storm, who scored the last of her team-leading 24 points and secure the win for 11-1 Hollidaysburg.

Micah Wormack was a machine for the Campers, finishing with 25 points, 14 rebounds, five steals and three blocks.

Hollidaysburg’s Morgan Jennings was the only other player to score in double digits with 10 points.

Allegany found itself with an 8-6 lead following one quarter, and still led 18-16 at halftime. The Tigers took the lead in the third and was ahead 32-20 at the beginning of the fourth.

The No. 5 Campers have lost four straight, but three of those losses came by less than six points against No. 1 Southern (34-29) and No. 2 Keyser (46-43) and the one-loss Tigers.

McKenzie Wilkinson scored 22 points during Hollidaysburg’s 56-18 jayvee victory. Kaylee Buckbee scored 12 for the Campers.

Allegany (5-8) plays at Hyndman at 6 p.m. Monday before getting the chance to win the Cumberland City League outright when they play at Fort Hill on Wednesday.
