‘Jacks Bite The Dust Again
The Valley Lumberjacks played the Clay-Battelle Cee-Bees tough for four quarters, but in the end they couldn’t pull it out, dropping a 54-43 verdict Feb. 5 at Pine Grove.
Ronald Morris was the lone double-digit scorer for Valley with 14, while Coleman Ueltschy added eight in a losing effort. Matthew Poling netted seven markers, while Garrett Ueltschy contributed six. Dustin Bickerstaff and Jeremiah Burch each tallied four points.
Valley misfired on 9-20 charity tosses that helped cause their heart-breaking loss to the Cee-Bees.
The Cameron Dragons doubled up the Valley Lumberjacks 13-26 after one period of play and had to hold off a gallant Lumberjack rally in the third to notch a 60-46 win in Pine Grove, Feb. 4.
Matthew Poling, Alex Henderson, and Garrett Ueltschy led the way for the ‘Jacks with 12, 11, and 10 points, respectively. Ronald Morris and Jeremiah Burch each chipped in with a three point basket, while Dustin Bickerstaff netted three points the old fashioned way – a bucket and a free throw. Coleman and Clay Ueltschy each netted two points for Valley.
The Lumberjacks will look to add win number two at home when they take on Bellaire St. John Feb. 10 with a 7 p.m. varsity start.
