MOUNDSVILLE, WV A rough third quarter proved costly to Barnesville High on Tuesday night in dropping a 76-64 setback to host John Marshall High.

After a deadlocked 17-17 tie after the opening quarter, the Rocks surged into a 37-29 halftime lead with a 20-12 scoring edge in the stanza.

But in the third quarter, the Monarchs unleashed a huge rally with a 29-8 points edge to grab a 58-45 lead heading into the final period of play.

We just couldnt get anything going in that third quarter, Barnesville coach Chris Pack explained. They sat back in a zone defense, and we made some very poor decisions that ended up with them getting a lot of easy buckets.

Barnesville managed a slim 19-18 edge in the fourth quarter, but the rally was not enough to overcome the poor third quarter.

With the loss, the Rocks slip to a season mark of 7-14.
