BYTOM BRAGG TIMES WEST VIRGINIAN


FAIRMONT — Make room in the trophy case on Fairmont’s West Side.

Fairmont Senior jumped on East Fairmont early and never looked back as the Polar Bears cruised to a 72-46 win against their crosstown rivals in the Class AAA, Region I, Section 2 championship game Friday at Joe Retton Arena.

“It was just a good night tonight,” Fairmont Senior junior Travon Horton said.

“This is what we should do every game, but tonight was a good night. Our chemistry was good, and we played good defense. That’s what got us up by 20 — defense. If it wasn’t for defense it would have been a close game.”

The Polar Bears raced out to a 21-7 lead to end the first quarter and held the Bees in check and kept them off the scoreboard until the 5:17 mark of the second quarter.

By the time East’s Seth Corwin made a bucket to end the drought, it was 28-9 in favor of the Polar Bears.

By the half, Fairmont Senior had a comfortable 40-17 lead and continued to
apply pressure in the third quarter as East Fairmont tried to claw its way back into the game.

“There are certain ways we have to attack Fairmont
Senior,” East assistant coach Joe Gearde said. “We’ve got to get the ball inside and work inside out. We got some inside touches and looks, but the ball didn’t go in.”

The Bees produced a 20­point third quarter after only scoring 17 in the entire first half, but allowed 21 Polar Bear points in the same period.

Fairmont Senior’s Horton led all scorers with 26 points with sophomore Jarin Hilson adding 20 in the win for the Bears.

Both Horton and Hilson, along with the Polar Bears’ other three starters (Shaquille Washington, DeVante Waits and Van Jones) were relentless on the defensive end of the court and forced several East Fairmont turnovers that turned into points on the other end of the floor in a hurry.

“I’m really pleased with their attention to detail,” Fairmont Senior head coach David Retton said. “Our effort and defense were really good tonight. We were able to get the ball out and run.”

Gearde said the transition game is where the Bears did a lot of damage to the Bees.

“What they were able to do is get in transition and take the ball back at us and score with numbers,” Gearde said. “You’ve got to give them credit for working their game plan. Theirs worked and our game plan worked, but the ball went in for them and for us it didn’t.”

Jones was the only other Polar Bear to score in double figures, tallying 11 points.

East senior Joseph Casalinuova led the Bees with 15 points while Corwin scored 12.

Both teams have tough assignments in the regional round of the playoffs.

For winning the section, Fairmont Senior gets to host Morgantown at the Woody Williams Armory on Tuesday. The Polar Bears and Mohigans split their season series, and it was Morgantown that knocked Fairmont Senior out of the playoffs at this same stage a year ago in Morgantown.

East Fairmont, as the sectional runner-up, must travel to play at Wheeling Park on Tuesday. Both games are scheduled for 7 p.m.

“It was exciting. Exciting to watch and coach and be a part of the game and to see the faces on our guys after the game,” Retton said. “It’s special. We’re going to enjoy it tonight then get back to work tomorrow.”

______

Three Polar Bears, two Bees, a North Marion Husky and a Preston Knight made up the All-Section team. Hilson, Horton and Jones from Fairmont Senior were named to the squad, with East’s Casalinuova and Corwin also making the list. North Marion’s Troy Shuck and Preston’s Jimmy Galusky rounded out the team.

______

The Bees played the second half of Friday’s game without head coach Tyrone Asterino on the bench. Asterino had to leave the game and go to the hospital because of high blood pressure. After the game Gearde said he did not know Asterino’s status but confirmed that the coach had left the game and went to be checked on.
Polar Bears, Hilson beat Preston
