Little Lady Buc cagers hike their winning streak to seven games


SHINNSTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Bucs ran their winning streak to seven games last week with a pair of varsity triumphs.

They knocked off Washington Irving’s Lady Hilltoppers Jan. 14 by a 37-25 count, and dealt Lincoln’s Lady Wildcats a 52-36 licking last Thursday to up their record to 12-3.

The game with Washington Irving got off to a slow start, with the Little Lady Bucs taking a 6-4 lead. With Kendal Currence banging in seven points, they claimed the second period by a 13-10 margin to hold a 19-14 halftime lead.

WI took the third canto by a 9-8 edge, but the Little Lady Bucs iced the contest with a 10-2 final quarter, with Kenna Maxwell banging in six markers, and Lexi Kelley and Kyndal Davis hitting a bucket apiece.

Currence took scoring honors with 11 points, with Maxwell tallying nine, Kelley canning seven, Cat Neely and Ashley Catlin adding four apiece, and Davis contributing two.

Balanced scoring was the key in the victory over Lincoln.

Maxwell and Kelley led the offense with nine markers each. Currence, Gabby Parke and Davis had eight apiece, Neely canned six, and Catlin and HodgeNay Henderson chipped in with two each.

Buckhannon romped into a 15-4 first-quarter lead, and put the game in the bag with a 19-6 second period that staked them to a 34-10 halftime cushion.

They will travel to Morgantown Thursday to battle Mountaineer.
