Maxwell leads Little Lady Buc JV squad to win


TENNERTON – Kenna Maxwell tallied 16 points to pace the Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Bucs to a 40-12 romp over Washington Irving’s Lady Hilltoppers Thursday night in junior varsity action.

The win puts the Little Lady Bucs at 5-2 heading into Tuesday’s clash with the visiting Robert L. Bland Lady Patriots. They will go on the road Thursday to face the Elkins Lady Green Hornets.

The Little Lady Bucs took a 5-3 first-quarter lead on Maxwell’s three-point bomb and Kendal Currence’s traditional bucket.

With Cat Neely and Maxwell canning four points apiece, and Callie Lantz banging in three, Buckhannon claimed the second period by a 11-3 spread to manufacture a 16-6 lead at intermission.

Maxwell went on an eight-point spree, Kyndal Davis popped in two baskets, and Hodgenay Henderson and Aubrianna Stevens each had a goal in the third canto, which went to the Little Lady Bucs by a 16-2 count.

They closed out with an 8-4 fourth quarter on three buckets by Stevens, and a free throw apiece by Maxwell and Gabriella Parke.

Stevens had eight markers, Neely and Davis four each, Lantz three, Currence and Henderson two apiece, and Parke one to round out Buckhannon’s scoring.
