BRUSHFORK — Jeremy Thompson pumped in a game-high 30 points to pace a solid Bluefield effort as the Beavers defeated Westside 73-62 at the Brushfork Armory on Tuesday night.
Bluefield started quickly, jumping out to an 8-1 lead on a Devin Goins’ 3, and ultimately stretched that lead to 10 at 17-7. Thompson converted on a pair of finger rolls and two fouls shots during that run.
The Renegades played their way back into it by answering with a six-point run and Bluefield led 20-15 at the end of the first quarter.
Westside continued its rally and tied it up at 25-all on an Elijah Puett jumper with 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the half.
Thompson keyed another Bluefield spurt with a trey and a tip-in with the Beavers leading 34-25 with :40 seconds remaining until the break. Westside struck again with back-to-back steals and scores and a Shane Jenkins’ 3 at the buzzer and Bluefield’s lead was just two, 34-32, at intermission.
The teams played to a 17-all dead heat in the third quarter and the lead remained at two, 51-49, going into the fourth period.
Early in the final frame Dyon Wright scored twice from close range, Mookie Collier finished a drive and Thompson drained another 3 during a critical 9-2 run and Bluefield led 63-53 and effectively salted away the game.
Thompson was joined in double figures by Collier with 13 and Wright with 12.
Jenkins paced three double figure Renegade scorers with 21, Jacob Ellis added 12 and Isaiah Lester chipped in with 10.
Bluefield, now 3-2, returns to action on Dec. 29 by hosting Greater Beckley Christian. Westside (2-1) travels to Woodrow Wilson on Monday.
