CALHOUN TAKES THIRD IN LKC - Davis Breaks Father's Scoring Record


By Gaylen Duskey SPORTS EDITOR

Two things went wrong in Calhoun County's 74-69 victory over Parkersburg Catholic in the third place game of the LKC Night of Champions at Parkersburg High School Saturday night.

First, the Red Devils frittered away a 26-point lead.

Second, Marcus Davis scored 30 points - one more than he needed to break his father Tim's long-time record of 1,808 points.

He tied and broke the record shooting two free throws in the closing moments to seal the victory against the hard-charging Crusaders.

Calhoun had an extremely comfortable 56-40 lead in the fourth quarter over the Crusaders. But then things started to go awry and all of a sudden PCHS was closing quickly on the Red Devils threatening a fourth quarter swoon reminiscent of a couple - Doddridge and Roane - that cost the team a win.

"I didn't like that much," Calhoun coach Tim Davis said. "I don't know what it is about the fourth quarter that we sometimes have trouble finishing the other team off.

"I wanted to save Marcus to let him break the record at home (the Red Devils entertain Herbert Hoover Tuesday night) but they (the Crusaders) just kept coming at us so I had to leave him in there."

Davis needed 29. He got 30, including three three-point goals and nine rebounds, to lead Calhoun, now 14-5, to the win.

Jake Perkins backed him with 26 points and 10 rebounds while Mike Batten added eight, Tristan Harris and Chris Sampson four apiece and Zach Houchin three.

For PCHS, now 9-12, Nate Black led the way with 22.

Ravenswood won the LKC title beating Gilmer County 68-55.

After playing Herbert Hoover Tuesday the Red Devils entertain Richwood on Thursday and Wahama Saturday to close out the regular season.
