The winner will advance to the Charleston Civic Center and com- pete in the WV State Girls Basket- ball Tournament on Wednesday, March 12 at 9:30 p.m. versus the winner of the Wheeling Central ( 14-7)/Valley Wetzel (20- I ) Region I Final. Last year both Fayetteville and Pocahontas advanced to the state tournament (final eight) by winning Class A Regional championships in different regions. Fayetteville is led by 5'11'" Junior forward/guard Jill Meadows who averages about 21 points per game and has sur- passed the 1,000-point scoring pla- teau. Pocahontas County beat Midland Trail 60-56 Saturday, March I, in the rescheduled Region V Section I championship final at Nicholas County High School before a full house of fans from both schools. The scoring started slow until the nervous players settled down and the first quarter ended 14-13 in favor of the Lady Patriots from Midland Trail. The second quarter was a low- scoring 8-8 tie, so Trail took a one point lead into the locker room at the half. The Pocahontas County post players, juniors Ashley Mc- Nabb and Caroline McKean (the McPost Girls!), scored all but two of Pocahontas" first half points. Midland Trail fouled McKean and McNabb the entire game trying to stop their constant trips to the bas- ket. Trail was called for 11 fouls the first half and 21 fouls in the game. The Lady Wamors were only called for four fouls the first half and 12 in the game. McKean and McNabb each shot 14 foul shots. The tempo and the scoring picked up considerably the second half when 63% of the game scoring oc- curred. Six girls scored for Poca- hontas in the third quarter, At the end of three quarters, the game was deadlocked at 42-42. Pocahontas finally started to pull away in the fourth quarter as Amy Carte's three-pointers kept Trail in the game. With 1:10 to go in the game, Pocahontas led 58-52. At the 4.2 second mark and with the Lady Warriors up 59 to 56, the Pocahon- tas fans and coaches protested when the clock was reset to 7 seconds. McKean was fouled twice during the final seconds and when she made one of the foul shots, the four point margin of victory held. Mc- Nabb stole the ball as Trail threw the ball into play on the last play of the game under our basket and was driving for a lay up as time ex- pired. Pocahontas County had its best rebounding game this year with 36 rebounds, 10 over their average of 26, and against a taller opponent. The Lady Warriors shot 53% at the free throw line and that is the team average. Pocahontas was 17 for 32 and Trail was five for 14 at the charity stripe. The four junior starters led the scoring for Pocahontas County. McKean had her career high game with a double-double of 21 points and 13 rebounds plus three steals and three assists. McNabb equaled her career scor- ing game with 20 points and added 6 rebounds, four steals, and one assist. Always giving it her all, Brittany Burner hit six of her eight points in the second half and had seven rebounds and one blocked shot. Rachel Wayne hit all seven of her points in the second half and had five assists, five rebounds and one steal. Senior Malea Gum had five steals and one blocked shot. Junior Angela Foe and Gum scored two points each in the high scoring third quarter. Coaches John Snyder, Tim Mc- Clung and Kenny Lehman com- mented that the team is still not where they would have been if,they had not missed four weeks of prac- tice and had played the seven games that were canceled. If the Lady Warriors win Thurs- day and advance to Charleston as one of the elite eight for the second time ever, financial support will be needed to defray portation, food, and in Charleston.
