The Mohigans (8-4) beat the Patriots (11-3) in the state semifinals or later in each of the last three years, on their way to back-to-back-to-back championships.
Now MHS is starting to hit its stride this season.
“That’s three pretty good wins in a row,” coach Jason White said, “to beat No. 2 Buckhannon-Upshur and then go up to Wheeling Park, always a tough place to play, and then get No. 4 Parkersburg South. It’s been a heck of a week.”
White described his team’s latest encounter with the Patriots as “just a hard-fought defensive game. That’s a team scoring in the 70s. Both teams played so hard defensively.
“It was a five-point game coming down the stretch, and we made some big stops and spread it out so they had to foul us.”
MHS made enough free throws to hold on.
Courtney Quinn and Fallon Nicholson added nine points each for the Mohigans, who next face University High, on Friday.
Devin Hefner topped the Patriots with 16 points and Lexi Moore added
