INWOOD, W.Va. — Musselman simply had too much for Moorefield Thursday night in the opening round of the Musselman Tournament, handing the Yellow Jackets their second loss to open the season in Inwood.
Five Musselman players scored in double figures, led by Trevon Veslo with 24 points, and Jacob Bare with 20.

Musselman led 28-8 after the first quarter, 41-23 at the half and 70-35 entering the fourth.
“They were more athletic and we got frustrated with their press,” said Moorefield head coach Pat McGregor. “We shouldn’t have, but I think we did and we panicked a little. We had a nice run in the second quarter, but couldn’t capitalize on it. They’re very big and very athletic and run the floor very well.”
Moorefield (0-2) returns to Inwood today to play Hedgesville at 6 p.m.
