The Tigers continued that momentum in the third quarter as they started the quarter on a 9-2 run to take a 31-16 lead on Smith's 3-pointer with 5:52 remaining in the third.


Following a Cole Godish 3 to bring Poca within 12 points, 33-21, Chapmanville closed the quarter on a 14-3 run to take a 47-24 after three quarters of play on the strength of four made 3-pointers.
