Frankfort advances

Falcons upset Berkeley, 60-55

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Trailing by 18 at halftime, Frankfort came out of the locker room a different team as the Falcons rallied to tie the score by the end of the third quarter and pulled away in the fourth for a 60-55 win over Berkeley Springs in the first round of the West Virginia Class AA Sectional playoffs.

Berkeley Springs worked its way to a 10-7 lead after the first quarter and outscored the Falcons 22-7 during the second quarter to lead 32-14 at halftime. Some switches by Frankfort led to a completely different second half as the Indians were outscored 26-6 in the third to finish the quarter tied at 38.

“They didn’t respond well when we came out and pressed them after halftime,” said Scott Slider, Frankfort’s head coach. “The press created some turnovers for us and we were able to capitalize on them.”

The Indians got 13 points from Kyle Appel and 12 from Michael Kerney.
