The Tomcats would then use a 10-3 run of their own to head into halftime with a 38-23 lead. Ashland would come out strong defensively in the third, holding the comets to just six points in the third quarter.
West had played particularly well in the month of February winning four out of their last six heading into last week.
“I don’t feel like fatigue is an excuse, just simply because we didn't put forth the maximum effort,” Webb said about the Elliott County game. “ ... I think it was simply not being used to and preparing for Ashland’s system and style that they like to play.”
Spurlock would finish 12 points while Roe added 11 and Jordan contributed with 10.
For Layne, Spurlock and Gee, it would be the last time they would ever play a high school game at Hop Brown court.
“It’s tough to go out with a loss,” Webb said. “They will be sorely missed and they’ve done a fine job, especially in the last month of leading this team and making plays on both ends of the floor. I can’t say enough about what they’ve meant to our program.”
