George was game high scorer with 26 points including five three-pointers while also hitting a perfect nine of nine free throws.\u00a0 George grabbed nine rebounds and just missed a double-double.\u00a0 She was the only player to score in every quarter and also hit at least one three in every period.\r\nHead Coach Mike Kane was very pleased with the Lady Warriors\u2019 passing game and the fact that they out-rebounded\u00a0Moorefield\u00a050-28 and forced 29 turnovers while only committing 10 miscues in the 73 - 41 victory.\r\nWhen PCHS played at Moorefield on January 8, a two-point PCHS second quarter allowed Moorefield to get within three points, but Pocahontas went on to win, 40-30.\u00a0 This game was tied at 6 - 6, and that was as close as Moorefield ever got.\u00a0 PCHS had two 6-0 runs in the first quarter, a 7-0 run in the second and finished off the Yellowjackets with an 18-0 run in the third stanza.\r\nLosing another four strong seniors for the second year in a row will give Coaches Mike Kane and Mike Murphy a few gray hairs, but they always seem to build another state power each year with their strong summer program.\u00a0 The four seniors scored 23 points Thursday.\u00a0 Melissa Murphy leads the team in steals and assists, is second in scoring and threes, and comes in third in rebounding.\u00a0 Kayleigh Arbogast is second in rebounding and third in steals.\r\nMegan Galford, who took a year break from basketball last season, scored seven points and deflected the ball three times.\u00a0 Michelle Murphy was second high rebounder in the game with Briana Mills, as each tallied five rebounds.\u00a0 Michelle added three assists, three points and two steals.\u00a0\r\nJunior Mary Kelley came off the bench for Senior Night and \u00a0exploded in the third quarter for 10 of her 18 game points in a very short time span.\u00a0 Melissa provided eight points, five assists, three steals and one deflection.\u00a0 Arbogast supplied five points, four rebounds and two steals.\u00a0 All 12 Lady Warriors played and 10 scored, plus every player had stats.\r\nPCHS improves to 9-5 and 6-1 in the PVC.\u00a0 Moorefield drops to 5-10 and 4-5 in the PVC. \u00a0\r\nThe PCHS girls (9-5, #11 Metro) travel to Fayetteville (11-2, #6 AP) Friday, February 5 \u2013 JV 5:45 p.m., V 7:30 p.m. \u2013 and to Tucker County (12-2, #2 AP, Coaches and Metro) on Monday, February 8 \u2013 JV 5:45 p.m., V 7:30 p.m.
