TENNERTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Bucs eked out a 16-10 victory over the Elkins Lady Green Hornets here last Monday night to even their junior varsity record at 2-2.

They blanked Elkins by a 4-0 count in the opening quarter on Callie Lantz’s two buckets.      

With Kenna Maxwell canning a basket and a pair of charity throws, and Kendall Currence and McKinley Bonnett hitting a goal apiece, the Little Lady Bucs took the second period by an 8-3 margin to move into a 12-3 halftime lead.

They failed to score in a 3-0 third stanza, leaving them with a six-point advantage, at 12-6, going into the final six minutes.

The fourth canto was a 4-4 deadlock, with Maxwell and Hodgenay Henderson tallying a bucket apiece for Buckhannon.

Maxwell led them in scoring with six markers, with Lantz adding four, and Currence and Henderson chipping in with two each.
