KEYSER, W.Va. — Brian George scored 14 points to lead a balanced scoring attack and third-ranked Petersburg held Keyser to 15 second-half points for a convincing 68-40 road win on Saturday night.

During the second half, Petersburg clamped down on defense, holding Keyser to three points in the third quarter and padding the lead to 43-28. The Vikings heated up on the offensive end and built a 30-point lead at 66-36 at the 2:35 mark of the fourth.

George added 10 rebounds for a double-double for the Vikings, who outrebounded Keyser 36-15. Jace Shanholtz had nine points and Grant Shanholtz and Ryan VanMeter handed out four assists.

Pendleton    73

Petersburg    69

FRANKLIN, W.Va. — In a meeting of two teams riding hot streaks, Petersburg did not have an answer for Pendleton’s Evan Arrington, who scored a game-high 36 points to lead Pendleton County  to a four-point win.

 Brian George led Petersburg with 25 points and 12 rebounds, while Grant Shanholtz added 19 points. Logan Cooper added 16 points for Pendleton County.

The teams traded baskets with each other throughout the first quarter with Petersburg grabbing a slim, 15-13, lead. The Wildcats came on strong in the second and went to the half with a 33-28 lead. The tempo remained the same throughout the third quarter and Pendleton County built a 41-31 lead with 4:38 remaining, and lead 48-40 at the end of the quarter.

The offenses blew up in the fourth and combined to score 54 points, and the Wildcats pushed their lead out to thirteen at 58-45 with 3:15 left. Petersburg cut a large chunck out of that deficit, but could come no closer than three on several occasions as the Wildcats closed out the game from the free-throw line to secure the victory.  

The Wildcats had won nine of their last 10 going into Friday while the Vikings had won 11 straight.

Petersburg (13-3) travels to Keyser on Saturday while Pendleton County (14-4) hosts Union on Wednesday.
