Fairmont Senior rolls past Huskies

FAIRMONT — In the North-West rivalry game, the Fairmont Senior girls’ basketball team had to eclipse a 13-point deficit to defeat North Marion on Monday evening at the Woody Williams Armory, 59-44.

It was the Huskies’ Anna Moscufo who was scarfing up rebounds and then pounding the rock inside for buckets in the paint.

She managed to help North Marion High School to a 9-0 advantage with 6:02 remaining in the first period.

“We had Audia (Bartlett) and Anna (Moscufo) scoring early, then Audia picked it up in the third,” North Marion head coach Mike Parrish said. “She scored a bunch early. She needs to keep it going up low and putting it back up.

“When we play and do things that we’re supposed to, we look pretty good. We looked good in the first quarter and we looked good in the beginning of the third.”

As for the Polar Bears, they didn’t manage to hit a bucket until 3:24 was remaining in the first.

Kaden Whaley hit a free throw with 5:25 on the clock, but the Polar Bears didn’t strike a point from a shot until Emily Stoller stepped back and knocked down a three, making the score 12-4 North.

Prior to the bucket by Stoller, Fairmont Senior had been 0-13 from the arch.

always in the gym. Those are the players that you enjoy coaching. Once she settled down and once she started making her cuts and going toward the basket, she was unstoppable. She also has the ability to pass as well as she does to shoot.”

In the third period, the Polar Bears started to pull away.

A three from Stoller here and a jumper from Whaley and Tenney there, Fairmont Senior managed to drop 21 points in the period alone.

    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.”
