A Dohn Prep surge to start the second quarter put Chapmanville in a big deficit one that was too much to overcome despite a third quarter rally as the Panthers defeated the Tigers 67-54 Friday night in the Country Roads Showcase at Danny Godby Gymnasium.
Facing a 15-point second half deficit following a 3 from Timothy Worrell with 7:41 remaining in the third quarter, Chapmanville outscored Dohn Prep 33-20 over the next 12:18 to pull within two, 54-52, on Zion Blevins layup with 3:23 to play in the fourth quarter.
Blevins, who was fouled on the play, failed to convert the old fashioned 3-point play and Dohn Prep’s Edward Castillo came up with the loose ball before Chapmanville’s Sam Leslie could corral the offensive rebound.
Castillo found a streaking Keven Adorno for a layup that fueled a 13-0 run that put the game on ice for the Panthers.
Castillo led the Panthers with 21 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field. Castillo also had seven rebounds, five assists and five steals. Worrell added 13 points and eight rebounds while Adorno had 10 points to go along with five assists.
For the game, Dohn Prep shot 54.7 percent from the field connecting on 29-of-53 field goal attempts. The Panthers made 5-of-14 attempts (35.7 percent) and went 4-of-9 (44.4 percent) from the free throw line.
The Panthers owned the glass, outrebounding the Tigers 32-24, including a 9-7 advantage on the offensive boards turning those into 14 second chance points.
Dohn Prep jumped out to a 6-0 lead on back-to-back triples from Alejandro Carmona, Jr.and Worrell before Chapmanville answered with an 8-2 run to tie the contest at 8-8 after a pair of Brody Dalton free throws with 4:13 to play in the first quarter.
The Panthers closed the quarter on a 9-4 run to take a 17-12 lead after one quarter and extended that margin to 15 with a 12-2 run before settling for a 31-19 halftime lead.
Chapmanville heated up in the third quarter, outscoring Dohn Prep 21-15 to close the gap to 46-40 after three quarters of play.
Blevins posted a double-double to lead Chapmanville. The sophomore posted a game-high 23 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Blevins was 10-of-18 from the field and was the only Tiger to reach double figures.
Brody Dalton and Isaiah Smith just missed double figures finishing with eight points each.
Chapmanville struggled from the field in the first half connecting on 31 percent of its shots (9-of-29) and only 1-of-11 3-point attempts. In the second half the Tigers shot 56 percent from the field connecting on 14-of-25 field goal attempts.
For the game, Chapmanville shot 42.6 percent (23-for-54) but shot a dismal 3-of-20 (15 percent) from 3-point range and was 5-of-13 (38.5 percent) from the free throw line.
