BOYS

Lawrence County 99, Huntington St. Joe 61

HUNTINGTON A demonstration of how quick the Bulldogs were Monday night occurred in the second quarter, when the new video board in the Irish gym flashed "Defense! Defense! Defense!," but Lawrence County already had scored and St. Joe possessed the ball.

Cody Maynard scored a game-high 29 points for the Bulldogs (14-2). Maynard had plenty of help, as Tyler Johnson scored 22 and Trenton Adkins 20. Will Lafferty chipped in 11.

The Irish (6-3), ranked No. 4 in West Virginia's Class A, stayed with the Bulldogs early and led most of the first quarter. Lawrence County, though, began the second period on a 10-0 run to turn a 25-23 deficit to a 33-25 lead it never gave up. The Bulldogs led by as many as 17 before settling for a 49-34 halftime advantage.

Lawrence County made 45 of 67 shots (67.1%), including 10 from 3-point range, and outrebounded the Irish 35-24.

Playing their third game in as many days didn't appear to bother the newly crowned Kentucky 2A Section 8 Tournament champion Bulldogs, who closed the contest on a 20-4 run.

Jesse Muncy paced St. Joe with 19 points. Jaden Prince scored 14 and Caden Ehirim added 13.

LAWRENCE CO. 23 26 21 29 -- 99

Lawrence County (99) -- Johnson 22, Maynard 29, Bloomfield 4, Bellomy 6, Adkins 20, Brown 5, Ratliff 3, Gillespie 3, Lafferty 11.
