Jackets get past Warriors

MOOREFIELD – Moorefield collected a 25 team steals en route to a 55-39 win over Pocahontas County Monday night in PVC action.

“We did a nice job defensively tonight,” Yellow Jackets coach Pat McGregor said. “That’s been one of our strengths all season.

“We just need to convert our opportunities. We’re still having problems putting the ball in the basket and not taking advantage of our defensive steals.”

Aaron Cole bucketed 20 points to lead Moorefield, followed by Austin Williams with 14 points and Dakota Vetter with 10 markers and 10 rebounds.

Stephen Mick paced the Warriors (1-3, 0-2 PVC with 11 points.

The Yellow Jackets (2-2, 1-1) will face Pendleton County at 6 p.m. Friday in the Petersburg Holiday Tournament.

Pocahontas County will return to action at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 2 at home against Bath County (Va.) for a non-conference contest.
