"We didn't score," Parkersburg coach Kenny DeMoss said. "We played great 'D.' We held them at 25 at the half and 50 for the game, we want to keep teams between 40-50 points per game, that's our goal. We couldn't throw it in the ocean. If we make 25-30 percent more of our shots, it's a ball game."
To his point, Parkersburg was able to force 17 St. Albans turnovers and limit the Red Dragons to just 13-of-42 shooting from the floor. St. Albans did knock down 22 of 30 foul shots compared to just 2 of 8 for Parkersburg.
The win was a nice rebound for the Red Dragons after losing to South Charleston in their last outing.
"We come back off a loss and I thought we played pretty decent in the first half," James said. "We could've shot the ball a bit better and we had too many turnovers. In the second half we talked about coming out with intensity - do not turn the ball over - and I think we turned it over four or five times in a row. But they regrouped.
"We're tickled to death to be 6-2. I'm proud of the girls, but we've got to come and work and eliminate some of these mistakes."
Propst re-entered for St. Albans in the second half and rallied her way to 10 points and seven rebounds while Lexie Cooper contributed eight points.
Brooke Kurucz led Parkersburg with nine points.
