WESTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Buccaneers tumbled to Suncrest and East Fairmont last week, but bounced back to knock off Robert L. Bland here Monday night in the season-ending junior varsity clash.

They dropped a 58-22 decision to Suncrest’s Seals Feb. 5, and fell to East Fairmont’s Hornets Feb. 6 by a 50-37 count, but got their offense untracked to trounce Robert L. Bland’s Patriots, 49-24.

Coach Carrie Barton’s jayvees closed out the year with a 5-9 mark.

The Little Bucs fell behind by a 17-5 margin in the contest with visiting Suncrest, and were never able to threaten.

Shawn Blandino led the scoring with 11 points, with Zach Calef-Boring canning four, Josh Nesbitt, Chase Spencer and Keyton Lanier netting two each and Ian Donnen adding one.

The Little Bucs trailed in every quarter at East Fairmont.

Spencer headed them with 11 markers, including a trio of three pointers. Calef-Boring tallied nine, Zade Woody banged in six, Blandino and Nesbitt, tossed in four apiece and Donnen contributed three.

In the finale, the Little Bucs jumped out to a 13-7 first-quarter lead on a nine-point spree by Calef-Boring and buckets by Blandino and Donnen.

With Mark Hurst firing in three goals, Spenser bombing in a trey, Bryson Johnston and Luke Yardley hitting twos, and Calef-boring tacking on a charity throw, they claimed the second stanza by a 14-8 spread to own a 27-15 halftime advantage.

Buckhannon put the game on ice with a 17-3 third period, with Blandino netting six markers, Donnen hitting five and Calef-Boring, Spencer and Hurst each chipping in with two.

Calef-Boring claimed scoring honors with 12 points. Rounding out the balanced attack were Hurst and Blandino with eight apiece, Donnen with seven, Spencer with five, Dalton Auvil, Woody, Johnston and Yardley with two each and Lanier with one.
