The two rivals still had to play each other in Monday night’s makeup game at Logan High School’s Willie Akers Arena.
The Lady Tigers overcame a slow start to notch a 55-38 victory over the Lady Cats.
With the win Chapmanville swept the season series with Logan 2-0. The Lady Tigers beat Logan 61-49 earlier in the season at home.
CHS (14-6) plays rival Scott in Wednesday’s Class AA sectional tournament opener at Sherman High School at Seth. Game time is set for 7 p.m. The Lady Tigers lost 62-58 to the Lady Hawks earlier in the season at home in the only meeting between the two schools. The second game was called off due to bad weather.
Logan (8-14) opens the Class AA sectionals with Wednesday’s 7:30 p.m. contest with Tolsia at Williamson. The Lady Wildcats were blown out 49-11 at home by the Rebels in the lone meeting this season.
Chapmanville coach Ronnie Ooten said he was happy to sweep the series with Logan, which is his alma mater.
“We’re happy to get out of here with a win,” he said. “We play a little lax on Mondays I don’t know what it is. There was no school today so that hurt us too. We weren’t all that focused and we were looking ahead to the sectionals. You need to know that when you play Logan here they are going to be ready to play. It’s a big plus to beat Logan. Anytime you beat Logan twice in the same season that’s great. I love playing them.”
Chapmanville all-state guard Kris Garrett led the way with a game-high 23 points. She sank three 3-pointers for the game, which brought her season total to 82. Garrett was 4-for-4 from the foul line.
Sophomore Andi Williamson had 10 for the Lady Tigers. Poppy Ramey had eight, Kara Willis six, Brittany Casto four and Brittani Lowe and Kelsey Stowers tallied two each.
“I thought Andi stepped up and played her game tonight,” Ooten said. “Kelsey Stowers came in and helped us out with a minute or two of good ball.”
Seniors Kori White and Lori Willis led Logan with 12 points each. All of Willis’ points came on four treys.
Christie Spurlock had six, Heather Meade four and Rebekah Bevins and Rojet Lowe netted two each.
Logan coach Tim Cunningham led turnovers were the difference. It’s been that way all season for the Lady Wildcats, which are in a rebuilding mode after back-to-back 20-3 and 20-4 seasons.
“We made six, seven or eight turnovers in a row and that killed us,” Cunningham said. “I’m proud of the kids because we looked good at times but we still just had too many turnovers.”
Logan jumped on top 6-0 early on after buckets by Spurlock and two from Meade.
Chapmanville, though, bounced back to take a 18-13 lead after the first quarter following a couple of NBA-range 3-pointers by Garrett.
The Lady Tigers then outscored the Lady Cats 6-3 in the second to take a 24-16 halftime lead.
CHS began the third quarter with a 7-2 run to take a 31-18 lead.
Logan, though, countered with an 8-2 run to close to within 33-26 with 55 seconds to go in the third quarter.
Rojet Lowe finished off the run with a 12-foot baseline jumper.
Chapmanville was able to take a 36-26 lead after three following a lay-in by freshman Brittani Lowe.
Williamson started off the fourth quarter with a three-point play to put the Lady Tigers on top 39-26.
But then Lori Willis later canned a 3 to cut it to 39-31 with 5:59 to go in the contest.
It was all Chapmanville after that.
Leading 41-33 the Lady Tigers were able to outscore Logan 14-5 the rest of the way to pull away for the win.
The final score’s 17-point margin was the biggest of the game.
Chapmanville won the JV game 45-39.
