MOOREFIELD, W.Va. —

Laythen Good hit four threepoint

shots in the first quarter

and finished with a gamehigh

17 points as Buffalo

charged past Moorefield.

Good’s big first quarter,

coupled with a bad shootingperformance by Moorefield,

helped the Bison (2-1) to a 23-

6 lead. It was 38-16 at halftime.

Aaron Lewis added 14

points and John Hodges 11

for Buffalo.

Aaron Cole had 12 points,

Austin Williams 11 and Greg

Franklin 10 points and six

rebounds for Moorefield (1-

“We executed great in our

press break in the first quarter

but missed six layups. We

were just 2 of 14 in shots in

the paint in the first half,’’

lamented Moorefield coach

Pat McGregor. “We weren’t

mentally focused or something

in the first half. I don’t

know what it was.

“I give our kids credit for

fighting back. We played a

heck of a second half, against

a team that I believe has five

senior starters returning

from its state-tournament

team last year. We outscored

them 31-21 in the second half,

but it wasn’t enough because

we got buried in the first

half.”

on Monday. Buffalo

plays at Pendleton today at 2

p.m.

game 35-33. Devin Rich had

13 points for the Bison and
