CHARLESTON — Fourth-seed Lewis County pulled away in the final quarter to defeat No. 5 Philip Barbour, 53-42, Wednesday night in state quarterfinal action at the Charleston Coliseum & Convention Center.

Ella Pinkney led the Minutemaids with 20 points, followed by Kenna Maxwell with 17 and Emma Pinkney with 10.

Lewis County (23-3) will now face top-seed and Big 10 Conference rival East Fairmont at 7:15 p.m. Thursday in the semifinals.

The Lady Colts took an 8-7 lead on a pair of free throws from Arrington Sparks with 5:07 left in the first quarter but never led again as the Minutemaids closed the quarter on a 9-2 surge to lead 16-10 entering the second quarter.

A tip-in by freshman Rylee Bodkins with under 2 minutes left in the first half brought Philip Barbour to within 18-17 and a layup by Braylyn Sparks made it a 20-19 deficit with 1:05 left in the frame.
