Boys games

n LEWIS COUNTY 64, Harman 32: Nine different Minutemen found the scoring column, as coach Brett Vincent's squad raised its record to 3-1.

Jordan Watson led the attack with 16 points and 13 rebounds, while Tyler Snyder came off the bench to score 13. Cory Smailes added a game-high six assists.

Watson, who is among the Big 10 leaders in scoring, also produced a big floor game that included four assists, four steals and four blocked shots.

Lewis County established itself early, rolling to a 31-11 halftime lead, enabling Vincent to use his entire varsity unit in the second half.

"That was important to get all the other guys minutes in the second half. We are still committed to a set rotation, so our staff wanted to see what a lot of these guys could do in a varsity game situation," Vincent said.

Lewis County's bench scored 37 of the team's 64 points and grabbed 19 of the team's 40 rebounds.

Travis Mullenax led the Panthers with 17 points.

The 32 points posted by Harman was the largest output against Lewis this season.

"We were able to get off to a good start, and have control of the game. That gave us the chance to do some other things, and also play everybody," Vincent said.

n KEYSER 53, Preston 46: In a game that featured several ties and lead changes, the Golden Tornado pulled away in the fourth quarter, outscoring Preston, 16-10.

Donnie Marple and Brian Wilson led Keyser with 12 points each, with Josh Wilson adding 10. Zach Metheny was the only Knight to hit double figures with 11 points.

Girls games

n LEWIS COUNTY 41, Roane County 39: Kristen Golden led the Minutemaids with 17 points, and 16 rebounds, as coach Gary Stout's squad fought off a hard-playing Lady Raider squad.

Golden also recorded three steals and two blocked shots.

Roane jumped to an 11-5 lead after one quarter and held onto an 18-16 advantage at the half.

Golden led an LC surge in the third quarter, scoring eight points and pulling down seven in rebounds in the quarter, leading the Minutemaids to a 31-28 lead by the end of the period.

With the Roane not letting Lewis County pulled away, it was the play of forward Brett Miller that closed the issue in the final minutes. The junior scored eight of her 11 points in the game's final 2:26.

Playing with an injured ankle, Jaime Parker added eight rebounds and six assists. Amy Davis added two timely 3-point field goals.

"We are in a situation where we need to work it down low, and either get points down there or get kickouts to create any open looks on the perimeter. It took us a while to figure that out tonight. I had to call a timeout to figure out where I was. I thought maybe I had bought tickets to see a 3-point shooting contest," Stout said.

Lewis' inside game, led by Golden, Miller and Lindsey Bailey scored 33 of the team's 41 points.

"Tonight, we just weren't hitting from the outside. That's when coach gets on us and tells the inside players that we have to step it up," Golden said.

n KEYSER 50, Tyler Consolidated 38: Keyser used its quickness to throw a balanced attack at Tyler Consolidated, recording an impressive victory.

Five Tornado players scored beteween eight and 11 points with Lacy Rohrbough's 11 points and Ayeshia Beavers' nine leading the way.

Tyler's Lyncee Perkey led all scorers with 15 points.
