Once again Calhoun had a furious fourth quarter rally. But once again the Red Devils had dug themselves into too deep a hole.

The result was a 58-42 loss to Parkersburg Catholic Tuesday night sending the Red Devils to 0-20 on the season.

Despite playing a strong defensive game during the first half, the Red Devils were absolutely unable to get the offense in gear.

After falling behind 11-8 at the end of the first quarter the Red Devils went ice cold in the second period scoring only two points to trail 24-10 at halftime.

Calhoun fell further behind in the third quarter but did double its offensive total with 10 points. However that left the Crusaders on top 44-20 going into the final period.

But just as the Red Devils did at Wood County Christian last Friday night they roared back forcing another team to slow down its offense. Calhoun outscored the Crusaders 22-14 in the fourth.

A big part of the reason was the inspired play of Calhoun junior Josh DeWeese who controlled the boards and the tempo of the game before fouling out. In the fourth period DeWeese scored eight of his 10 points while grabbing five of his 12 rebounds and coming up with two steals. Freshman Zach Moore led the Red Devils with a game-high 21 points while adding 15 rebounds and three steals.

Andrew Norman added eight points and four assists. Lucas Morford had three points while Justin Gerwig, Harold McCumbers, Greg Myers and Chuck Kendal all played but did not score.

Zane Schneider led PCHS, 11-10, with 19 while Seth Ullman had 12 and Jason Williams 10.

Calhoun will seek its first win of the season Thursday night when it entertains Wahama. It closes out the regular season Friday when Doddridge invades.
