Meadow Bridge 80

Valley 49

Meadow Bridge pulled away in the second half for a convincing 80-49 win over the visiting Greyhounds in boys action Thursday.

The Wildcats led 34-27 at halftime but secured a decided 46-22 edge over the Greyhounds in the second quarter.

"We played pretty well," said Meadow Bridge head coach Mark Gladwell. "Foul trouble really hurt them (Valley).

"They lost their two best players (Adam Falbo and Lucca Giannini) to fouls."

Falbo picked up his fifth foul in the third quarter.

Jared Gladwell tallied 30 points, including a 17-of-20 performance from the free-throw line, to pace the Meadow Bridge attack. Gladwell also grabbed nine rebounds.

Kobe Rozell supplied 20 points and 10 rebounds to the MB attack, and Lukas Stephens had a career-high 17 points, in addition to passing out five assists.

"Lukas may have played his best all-around game of the year," Gladwell said. "We did a good job getting to the foul line. Jared did a good job of attacking the rim; he knew they were going to foul him.

"Kobe is still a double-double every night. He's gotten much better; his rebounding has really improved."

Ean Crane had four assists for the Wildcats, who swept the regular season series from Valley.

For Valley (6-8), Adam Falbo collected 11 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Quinten DeMello scored 10 points, and Zach Winter tossed in nine markers.

Starting with Valley, Meadow Bridge is in the midst of a five-game homestand that will be crucial, said coach Gladwell. This week, the 'Cats host Sherman on Tuesday, Calhoun County on Friday and Hundred on Saturday. The weekend games are West Virginia Hometown Invitational Tournament outings. Friday will be a 7:30 p.m. affair, and Saturday will start with a junior varsity contest at 1 p.m. On Feb. 5, Meadow Bridge entertains rival Midland Trail.

"We take it one game at a time and try to go 1-0 in the next game," Gladwell said, "but we knew (going into the season) that if we were going to have a successful year, this (home stretch) is very important."

Valley will play in the Big Atlantic Classic in Beckley on Monday and Wednesday, followed by a home encounter with state-ranked Charleston Catholic on Friday, Feb. 1.
