CHILLICOTHE – Mason Frasure and Tegan Myers were back to their scoring ways as they combined for 30 en route to a 54-32 beatdown on Chillicothe’s home court. It was all Chiefs from the tip and they found their groove early on.

The defensive gameplan for the Cavaliers was “don’t let 1 (Asthon Mahaffey) or 5 (Myers) shoot.” It is safe to say that that plan didn’t entirely succeed as the pair put up a total of 16 shots, converting on half. Not to mention the fact that Myers was sent to the foul line on three shot attempts; two of those in the final quarter to keep the game out of hand.

The Chieftains offense was extremely efficient and consistent on the night, starting with the first quarter. Seven of Myers’ 15 points came in the first period, capped off the by the lone Chiefs successful three attempt. Chillicothe’s Cam Hall came out firing, earning six points off of a pair of Michael Miller-assisted threes. After the initial eight minutes, Logan held a 13-8 lead.

Chillicothe did not go down without a fight. In the second quarter alone, the Cavs attempted four threes, making two. Whereas Logan found more success and outscored Chillicothe 14-8 in the frame behind five-of-eight shooting (two of three from beyond the arc). Five different Chiefs scored a field goal in the quarter and Myers added a pair of free throws. Heading into the break with an 11-point lead, Logan was feeling good.

The third quarter was where the fun started. Logan outscored Chillicothe 14-12 in the third, but the Cavs continued to fight. Hall was a perfect two-for-two from the field for five points and Miller added seven off a perfect three-for-three quarter. Fortunately for Logan, Frasure was in his bag. In the third quarter alone, Frasure went three of four for six; he also added a pair of free throws. Mahaffey added two while also dishing out a pair of assists in the frame and the Chiefs ended the eight-minute period up 41-28.

The fourth was all Chiefs as they looked to possess the ball and burn some clock. With a few minutes to go, the Chiefs pulled their starters to a standing ovation from the Logan faithful for their efforts. Frasure and Myers accrued some frequent flier miles at the free throw line as they were sent to the line five times in the final frame. They converted on seven of their 10 attempts. The other fourth-quarter points came off the bench. Max Black added two points and Simon Pierce found the bucket for four points.

On the night, Black was a perfect two of two on field goals, one of one from three for a total of five points and an assist. Myers, in addition to his 15 points, added nine rebounds and three assists. The other high scorer, Frasure, tallied 15 points, an assist, and three assists. Mahaffey scored nine to go with six rebounds and a pair of assists. Logan also made 13 of their 16 free throw attempts, while Chillicothe only sank two of their 10.

For the Cavs, Hall led the way with 16 points and three rebounds. On the night, Hall shot five of six from three. Miller added 13 points, a pair of rebounds, and four assists.

The JV fell, 37-31, beforehand.

On Saturday, the (7-5) Chiefs will be the headliner of the doubleheader featuring both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams on Saturday, January 15th. They’ll look to continue winning against a (6-2) Parkersburg South (WV) squad. Logan fell in the first contest, 65-52, when the pair played at Parkersburg South on Dec. 14.
