Thomas, Allegany turn back Southern

CUMBERLAND — Christian Thomas scored nine of his 19 points in the fourth quarter as second-ranked Allegany surged past Southern 59-42 Saturday evening.

The win was the second in as many nights for Allegany, now 6-3 overall and 5-0 in the Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference.

Trenton Eirich had 14 points, five assists and four rebounds, Calman McKenzie 12 points and six rebounds and Colton Sivic four points and six boards for the Campers, who led by just a bucket, 25-23, at the half. Bryce Nightengale blocked four shots.

Alex Fike led Southern (4-6, 3-4) with 10 points and Reese Haskiell had eight.

Southern, which trailed 42-33 after three quarters, closed to within five when Nightengale picked up his fifth foul with about six minutes to go.

But the Rams were unable to capitalize as Allegany’s defense rose to the occasion and the Campers ended up outscoring the Rams 17-9 for the period.

Allegany hosts Keyser and Southern entertains Mountain Ridge on Tuesday.

The Campers won the jayvee game 54-41 with Darquel Jessie getting 22 points and Darick Kerns 14. Travis Newton scored 18 for the Rams.

Snyder was one of two Yellow Jackets to score in double figures after Lance Taylor added 12 points. Garrett Keller and Dakota Vetter had 10 rebounds each, with Keller also scoring eight points.

Snyder caused a turnover in the final minutes by tipping a pass and hurdling the East Hardy bench on a save that lead to a Moorefield layup.

Moorefield (3-5) hosts Petersburg on Friday. East Hardy (3-5) is at Union on Wednesday.

South Harrison    57

Union    45

Union kept it within 10 for most of the night despite shooting just 29 percent from the field. It trailed 16-10 after one and 27-20 at halftime.

South Harrison’s shooting wasn’t much better. But, second chance opportunities from offensive rebounds paced their offense. It built a 38-28 lead after three and went on to win by 12.

Travis Murphy had 23 points to lead the Tigers.

Luke Gaines scored 11 and Andrew Lopez added 10 for South Harrison.
