North Adams Varsity and JV boys get wins over Whiteoak

Make it three out of four for Coach Nathan Copas and his North Adams Green Devils as they hosted the Whiteoak Wildcats on Jan. 5 in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play and send their guests home smarting from a 58-39 defeat. The win improved the Devils to 7-4 on the season, 5-1 in the SHAC.

“We are showing glimpses here and there of doing some things we want to do,” said Copas. “The key is just being consistent. Win or lose, we have to come away with things to learn from.”

After being deadlocked at 10 after the first quarter, the Green Devils used three-pointers from Ryan Shupert and Justin Knechtly in the second quarter to forge a 24-21 halftime lead. It was the third quarter that proved to be the difference as the Devils outscored Whiteoak 21-8, with the offensive exploits of seniors Trey Meade and Isaiah Anderson leading the way.

Now with a double digit lead, the Devils got a pair of buckets from Cole Meade in the fourth quarter, where they outscored the Wildcats 13-10 to post the 58-39 victory.

In their seventh win, the Green Devils were led again by Trey mead, who scored 17 points, all in the first three periods. Classmate Isaiah Anderson also hit double figures with 13, while Ryan Shupert, Justin Knechtly, Brandon Gingerich, and Cole Meade all added 6 apiece.

Whiteoak was led by 10 points from Brandon Ashbaugh.

The Wildcats won the freshman game 28-26, but it was still a two out of three night for North Adams as Coach Rob Meade and his JV Devils knocked off Whiteoak 52-36. The Devils led ate very stop, 14-7, 26-17, 35-28, and then the final 16-point difference. It was a long distance win for Coach Meade and his troops as they fired in eight three-point goals in the game, three by Bryant Lung, one by Jacob Call, two by Ryan Shupert, and two by Elijah Young.

“I thought our effort on the defensive end was very good tonight, Said Coach Meade. “Each night we are having guys step up and help on the offensive end as well. During our recent games, our effort and energy has played a huge role in our success.”

Eleven different North Adams JV players hit the scoring column, led by Lung’s 11 points, with Young and Shupert getting 8 each, and Call adding 7.

The North Adams high school boys squads got a nice, long break after the Whiteoak contests, not seeing action again until Jan. 15 when they will try to tag a first loss of the season on the Lynchburg Mustangs on the Mustangs’ home floor. The Green Devils will also be in action on Saturday in the Coach Young Classic, closing out the day with a 8:45 p.m.scheduled tip off against Oak Hill.
