    Neely's runner lifts 'Jackets past St. Marys

    In a contest that featured eight second-half ties here Friday night inside the Dan Greenleaf Gymnasium, Williamstown's Hunter Neely got a short runner in the lane to rattle through for the game-winner with 5.2 seconds left as the visiting Yellowjackets upended St. Marys, 55-53, in a battle of Little Kanawha Conference West Division rivals. "It was a gutsy play by Hunter and St. Marys did a good job guarding us," said WHS head coach Scott Sauro, whose squad had the ball with 41.4 ticks remaining after Blue Devil Jessy Moore tied the affair for the final time by hitting both ends of a 1-and-1.
