Point Pleasant went on a 4-0 run late in the third quarter and cut Huntington High’s lead to 62-9.

That’s the kind of night it was in the Highlanders’ 82-11 victory over the Lady Knights in the girls basketball season opener for both teams. Huntington High’s superior athleticism was far too much for Point Pleasant’s young team to overcome, despite Highlanders coach Lonnie Lucas emptying his bench in the second quarter.
