Clay-Battelle 61

Valley 50




In the third-place game of the third annual West Virginia Hometown Invitational Tournament at the Summersville Arena and Conference Center, Clay-Battelle twice built up leads of 19 points in the first half en route to an eventual 61-50 victory over the Greyhounds.

The Cee-Bees, with some of the same athletes who helped eliminate Valley from the 2012 Class A football playoffs, had leads of 36-17 and 38-19 late in the first half before Valley put up six straight points to trail by 13, 38-25, at intermission.

“With their shooting and getting in transition, they were hard to guard,” said Valley coach Joe McCoy. “We tried two or three different (types of defense) to try to stop them.

“They were shooting lights-out. Hats off to them.”

Class A No. 10 Valley cut the deficit to 10, 43-33, when Zac Warden scored off a Raeshawn Breckenridge feed with 3:16 left in the third, but Clay-Battelle promptly reeled off six straight to keep the ’Hounds at bay.

Warden scored 16 and Breckenridge 12 for Valley (11-6).

Tanner Bragg tallied 23 and Zach Chisler 18 for the Cee-Bees (12-5). Twelve of Chisler’s points occurred in the first period.
