Scott Drops Dots


Scott advances to the state championship game with a 73-64 win over Poca Friday afternoon.

The Skyhawks were led by Justin Harmon and David Ward who combined to score 56 points. Harmon led the way with 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting with 12 rebounds, while Ward scored 27 points on 9-of-18 shooting and pulled down 15 rebounds.

“They’re good,” said Scott head coach Jason Kingery. “They are, they’re good players. I wish I could take some credit for it, but I credit my assistant coaches. They’ve worked them and developed them and two outstanding young men too.”

The Skyhawks led from start to finish, never relinquishing the lead, but Scott coach Jason Kingery knew the Dots wouldn’t give up.

“Come on, it’s Alan Osbourne, one of the winningest high school coaches in the state of West Virginia,” said Kingery. “He does a great job and they have great athletes and all of our games have been down to the wire.”

This one did not come down to the wire as the Skyhawks out rebounded the Dots 52-to-36.

They also held one of the best players in the state in check. Jason Cuffee was held to 15 points and 11 rebounds.

“We did a lot of triangle and two,” said Kingery. “They’ve got sets against a box and one and they were kind of confused by the triangle and two because it does change the dynamics of the game out there. No one’s run a triangle and two against them and a lot of people have run a box and one against them. It got them out of rhythm.”

Clinton Parsons led the Dots with 18 points.

Both teams shot 36 percent from the field and both made six 3-pointers.

Scott will play the winner of the Oak Hill-Keyser game in the state championship game on Saturday at 2:30.
