Finally the losing streak is over.

Calhoun rallied in the fourth quarter to end its 21-game losing streak with a 62-56 victory over visiting Doddridge County Friday night.

The Red Devils trailed by two points heading into the fourth quarter but turned up the pressure on defense leading to several points on offense as they outscored the Bulldogs, 17-9 to take the win.

Calhoun jumped out to a big first quarter lead using its defensive pressure and patterned offense taking a seven-point 21-14 advantage.

The Bulldogs, now 12-10, took the lead at halftime by outscoring the Red Devils, 17-9, for a 31-30 halftime lead.

Doddridge ran it out to two points in the third with a 16-15 scoring advantage.

But the fourth quarter belonged to the Red Devils.

Calhoun scored quickly in the period and after taking the lead Doddridge was forced to foul. When that happened Calhoun was able to hit 11 of 20 free throws to hold off the Bulldogs.

Freshman Zach Moore led the Red Devils, 1-21, with 27 points and 16 rebounds.

His scoring was aided by the outstanding passing of Josh DeWeese, Justin Gerwig and Andrew Norman who had three assists apiece.

DeWeese played another outstanding game with 17 points and 12 rebounds. He also had five steals.

Norman had 10 points, five steals and a blocked shot.

Lucas Morford, playing his last home game as Calhoun's lone senior, had five points while Gerwig added three. Harold McCumbers played but did not score. Dan Hill led Doddridge, which had eight three-point goals to keep things close, with 14 while Troy Wilsoncroft added 11.

Calhoun will begin tournament play Tuesday night when it travels to Elizabeth for a 7 p.m. game against Wirt Country. The winner will then play Gilmer for the sectional title.
