TENNERTON — Jessica Feronti scored a season-high 18 points Wednesday evening to lead the Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Buccaneers to a 42-37 win over the East Fairmont Lady Bees.

Feronti scored nine of her points in the fourth quarter, including six straight points on an 8-0 B-U run to open the period and put the Lady Bucs back in the lead. Of her seven field goals on the night, Feronti scored six of them on drives to the basket, as the Lady Bucs outscored East Fairmont by a 28-12 margin in the paint.

“This was the best game we played all year, offensively and defensively,” B-U head coach Tristen Gray said after the game, which snapped an 11-game losing skid. “We didn’t have as many turnovers tonight and tonight was the first time all year that we just clicked. We got good ball movement and good, open shots.

“The girls played with confidence from the beginning of the game. We came in tonight after the second half of the Fairmont Senior game [last Friday], where we competed with them in the second half, knowing we could play with [East Fairmont] and win this game.”
