CHARMCO – Mount View should consider taking the nickname of the Cinderellas, rather than the Golden Knights after knocking off the Greenbrier West Cavaliers Thursday evening in a Class A, Region III Section 2 meeting by a 57-51 score on the Cavs home court.
The Cinderellas, now 11-12 on the season, trailed by double digits on occasion and by three entering the final quarter before pulling out the victory.
West, winners of its first 13 games of the campaign, fell to 18-5 against the determined Mount View contingent.
Sophomores Tony Bailey and Justin Haggerty paced the View with 17 and 10 points respectively, while senior Zach McCoy contributed 13.
Mount View will square off against Greater Beckley Christian this evening at 7 pm at Montcalm High School for the Sectional title, and with last night’s win will play in one Region III co-final next Thursday, with a trip to the boys’ state basketball tournament on the line.
