— SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Petersburg turned a 12-12 tie after the first quarter into a 27-19 lead by halftime, and the No. 3 Vikings rolled to a 61-45 win from Frankfort Thursday night.

Each team opened with a dozen points, but the Vikings separated themselves from there. They outscored the Falcons 15-7 in the second quarter and 19-15 in the third to lead 46-34 headed into the fourth.

Katie Beeman led Frankfort in scoring with 17 points. Ashley Noah scored 13 and Madi Pfaff added 12.

Calvary Christian    48

Fulton Christian    37

NEEDMORE, Pa. — Calvary Christian Academy had role players step up to fill voids when needed and the Fighting Eagles shook off a three-point deficit at halftime to beat Fulton County Christian on Thursday evening.

Karly Hipsley scored an Eagle-high 14 points and added five rebounds and five steals while Brooke Ricker had eight points to match a huge 17-rebound showing, but coach Rusty Kitzmiller gave loads of credit to Logan Ketterman and Chesni Ultis.

“Logan had her best game of the year at a time that we really needed it,” he said. “Chesni did a lot more of running the offense for us than she usually does and was again tough on defense. I’ve told the team that as other schools start to run more gadget defenses to try and shut down Payton (Emerick) and Karly we are going to need others to step their game up in order to win.”

Ketterman scored a season-high 10 points and added five rebounds, and Ultis finished with seven points, seven assists and two steals.

Fulton got out to a 12-9 advantage after one and a 23-20 lead at halftime. The Eagles took the lead in the third and entered the fourth ahead 34-30.

Janae Gordon led Fulton with 20 points.

The Eagles (10-5) play Grace tonight, 5:30, at home as part of a seven-day stretch that features five games.
