Five crack double figures, Boyd tops West

(Continued)

OLIVE HILL —

Boyd County surged to an early 5-0 advantage, but West Carter answered and after Jacob Layne sank the first of his five 3-pointers (on six attempts) the Comets led 7-5 with 5:27 to play in the first quarter. However, from there, the Lions went on a 9-0 run over the next 2:32 and never trailed again.

A Dalton Spurlock 3-pointer to start the second quarter closed the margin back to single digits, at 23-15. For the better part of the remainder of the half, West Carter stayed within 10 points, cutting the margin to seven by intermission.

Layne opened the third period with a layup to draw the Comets within five, but the Lions went on a 15-4 run over the next four minutes and pulled away for good.

The Lions outscored the Comets 16-6 in the fourth quarter as Boyd County’s lead grew as large as 23 points with 37 seconds to play.
