BECKLEY — The Man High School boys’ basketball team had a daunting task on Wednesday night in the Class A Region 3 Section 1 semifinals.

The Hillbilllies had to play at Greater Beckley Christian.

The underdog Man boys fell 90-57 to the Crusaders and saw its season come to an end at 11-12.

Man, which beat Van in last Saturday’s sectional tournament opener at home, lost all three games to Greater Beckley Christian this season.

The Crusaders were led by the 40-point performance from Elisha Kidd. Javonna Staunton-Bailey also ripped the nets for 31 points.

Sophomore guard John Thomas Keffer led Man with 21 points.

Greater Beckley Christian now moves on to play host to defending Class A state champion Tug Valley in Saturday’s sectional championship game, set for 1 p.m. at the Raleigh County Armory in Beckley.

The Panthers, which have won two straight state titles, also taking a 2A crown in 2012, had no problems with Sherman on Wednesday night as Tug won 74-45 at home.

Both Greater Beckley and Tug Valley will play their regionals next Wednesday.

The Crusaders improved to 17-6 on the season with the win. Tug Valley is 17-5 and have gone 12-1 in its last 13 games, including a 67-52 victory over GBC on Feb. 27 in Naugatuck.

Tug Valley lost 67-53 at Greater Beckley Christian early on in the season.
