Huskies, Bees fall at home: PHOTOS

FAIRMONT — North Marion boys’ basketball team lost to Bridgeport for the second time this season on Tuesday, as the Indians pulled away after halftime for a 68-55 win.

The Huskies, who fell at BHS 60-52 last month, trailed 23-20 on Tuesday but managed to fight back and forth a 38-all tie by intemisson.

Bridgeport (15-6), though, held a 30-17 scoring edge in the second half to win for the sixth time in its past seven games.

Jordan Haywood led the Indians with 24 points.

Matt Cain — who along with Cameron Wilson were honored on Tuesday’s Senior Night — made his regular season home finale one to remember individually.

Cain scored a game-best 27 and connected on seven first-half 3-pointers.

Wilson added 12, while Cole Richards and Chase Banker each had seven and Cody Opron six.

North, which closes the regular season at 14-7, is off until it begins sectional tournament play.

  • Post 17 #7 Post 2 #12 mw.JPG Post 17 falls short in Area II championship

    Sometimes getting a bad game out of your system is what a team needs.
    Post 17 Fairmont is hoping that they’ve now gotten all of its bad games out of the way, falling to Post 2 Morgantown, 10-0, via a 7th inning mercy rule, crowning Morgantown Area II American Legion champions.
    After playing 18 innings the night before, Fairmont couldn’t seem to get anything going at East Fairmont High School Sunday afternoon.
    As rain clouds loomed over the field, so, too, did one settle in over Post 17’s offense, Fairmont collecting just four hits the entire game.
    “Definitely not one of our better games as a team,” Fairmont’s Austin Norman said of his team’s performance. “We’ll come up tomorrow, hit and get on the same page.”
