Wheelersburg’s Kaylee Darnell looks for an open teammate during the second half of Monday’s 80-39 loss at Vinton County.


VINTON COUNTY 80, WHEELERSBURG 39

In a highly anticipated non-conference matchup, Vinton County set a school record by hitting 14 3-point field goals en route to an 80-39 win over Wheelersburg.

The Vikings (11-0) led at all stops, including 45-26 at halftime and 65-32 after three quarters.

“I felt like in the first half, we competed pretty hard,” Wheelersburg coach Dusty Spradlin said. “We didn’t cash in on a couple of opportunities and against somebody that’s this talented … we went into halftime down 19 and didn’t feel like we played that poorly. We just have to find ways to convert some of the opportunities we get.

Vinton County’s Morgan Bentley, Tegan Bartoe and Cameron Zinn were a lethal trio. Bentley posted a triple-double with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists while Bartoe and Zinn combined to score 43 points — 23 for Bartoe and 20 for Zinn.

Leading Wheelersburg (9-3) statistically were Kaylee Darnell and Abbie Kallner with 16 and 11 points, respectively.

The Pirates get back to action Thursday, hosting Oak Hill in a pivotal SOC II matchup.

“We have to get back to what we do,” Spradlin said. “We got a little out of character when we fell behind tonight. It’s a learning experience and that’s what we’re going to use it as.”
