Tornado topples Miners

KEYSER, W.Va. — Second-ranked Keyser allowed six total points during the second and third quarters, locking down on the No. 3 Miners and finishing the evening with a 49-27 win over Mountain Ridge to set the school’s single-season record for wins.

The Golden Tornado had a five-point, 16-11, lead after the first quarter before turning up the intensity over the next two. Keyser entered halftime with a 27-14 lead and led 40-17 following the third quarter.

Leading the charge on defense was Lexi Taylor with 19 rebounds, 14 on the defensive end. Taylor had 14 points and got six off those off of three offensive rebounds. Lexi Carr also had a double-double by recording 16 points and dishing out 10 assists.

Mountain Ridge (13-6, 6-5 Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference) was led by Sarah Raines with eight points and Kiya Wilhelm with six.

With their 18th win, the Golden Tornado breaks a tie with the 1993 and 2002 teams that finished with 17. Keyser went 17-3 in ‘93 and 17-7 in ‘02, with playoff games included in both.

The 49 point output also shoots Keyser (18-2) past the 1979 team to become the school’s highest-scoring offense. The ‘79 squad scored 1,247 points in 23 games, while this year’s edition has 1,255 through 20.

Mountain Ridge won the jayvee game 38-32. Tessa Lutton had 12 points, while McKenna Broadwater and Kayla Stickley scored 10 apiece in the win. Baylee Yaider had 19 in the loss.

Keyser (8-2 AMAC) travels to No. 1 Southern tonight at 7:30. Mountain Ridge has Fort Hill at home on Wednesday.

Fort Hill     42

Bedford     37

CUMBERLAND — Sarah Lowery scored 20 of the No. 5 Lady Sentinels’ points in a 42-37 victory over Bedford Monday evening.

Lowery made a game-high nine field goals, leading all scorers on the night, and contributed seven rebounds and three steals as Fort Hill won their third straight game. Alexis Kimmell added eight points, eight rebounds and seven assists while Troie York grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds.

The Sentinels jumped out to a 19-9 advantage over the Bison after the first quarter. The 10-point difference would seem to be the difference in Fort Hill holding off a strong fourth quarter effort from Bedford. Entering the fourth period, the Lady Sentinels 32-21 lead was just enough, coming away with the win despite being outscored by six points in the final quarter by the Bison.

Bedford (4-13) was led in scoring on the night by freshman Allison Shuke with 19 points. Kelsey Koontz had 11 points for the Bison.

Fort Hill (10-7) will play Wednesday at Mountain Ridge at 7:30 p.m.
