A three-pointer from Jackson Smith to open a Mid-State League Buckeye Division game on Friday signaled a big first quarter that Teays Valley rode to a 47-32 win over visiting Circleville.
“Circleville had a good game plan coming in, but we were too big inside and our guard play was solid down the stretch to help us secure the win,” Teays Valley coach Brian Barnett said.
The Vikings led 15-3 following a quarter of play and coasted into leads of 21-9 at halftime and 31-21 entering the final period of play.
Ryan Allton and Cameron Dyas-Rogers scored six points apiece during the fourth quarter, which Dyas-Rogers capped with a thunderous dunk that brought cheers from the home crowd.
Dyas-Rogers had six of his game-high 20 points in the first quarter to spark the Vikings, Allton tallied eight and Peyton Weiler added five.
“Cameron had a breakout game tonight at the offensive end of the floor. I felt we did a good job of getting him the ball where he could score,” Barnett praised. “Sam Millier continues to do a great job inside for us.
“We also got some great minutes from Ryan Allton tonight. He brings another dimension to us both offensively and defensively when he is on the floor. He is a very active defender and tonight score all of his points by moving efficiently on the offensive end. Peyton Weiler also continued his solid season. Even though his points were down a little tonight, there were so many other things he brought to the court.”
Briley Cramer led the way for the Tigers with 10 points, Craig Fleck had seven and Ian Warden added six.
Both teams continue league play on Tuesday, as the Vikings (6-6, 5-1) host Liberty Union and the Tigers (3-10, 1-5) entertain Hamilton Township.
