Fayetteville 58

Valley Wetzel 52

Playing without two regulars, the Fayetteville boys fell behind 18-4 in the early going before fighting back to claim 15th place in the WVHIT.

Zach Semple poured in 30 points, including 13 in the second quarter, to pace the Pirates’ attack. Will Dooley chipped in 10, and Jake Alton hit two key 3-pointers down the stretch.

Fayetteville coach Todd Mann was happy with his team’s performance. He said pressure helped the Pirates get back in the game.

“There’s no easy way to prepare for a 9 a.m. game,” he said. “We did a pretty good job.”

Mann also praised his junior varsity players for stepping up in the absence of L.J. White and Aaron Krise.
