CHESAPEAKE, Ohio — Not this time.

After spulling off a 58-55 shocker at home just one week earlier, the River Valley boys basketball team had no luck in its rematch with host Chesapeake Friday night during a 60-20 setback in an Ohio Valley Conference matchup in Lawrence County.

The visiting Raiders (5-15, 2-6 OVC) — who shot 54 percent from the field in the first contest — made just eight total baskets and never scored more than six points in any one period of play. RVHS had just three players reach the scoring column in the 40-point setback.

The Panthers (11-7, 4-5) never trailed in the contest, as the hosts led 17-6 after eight minutes of play before going on an 11-3 second quarter run to secure a 28-9 halftime advantage.

CHS followed with a 17-6 surge in the third canto for a 45-15 cushion headed into the finale, then closed regulation with a 15-5 run to salvage the season split.

Tyler Twyman — who hit eight trifectas and scored 32 points in the first meeting — led RVHS with 10 points. John Qualls was next with nine points, while Andrew Moffett rounded out the scoring with one marker. The Raiders were 2-of-8 at the free throw line for 25 percent.

Gage Rhoades paced CHS with a game-high 15 points, followed by Andrew Saunders with nine points and Brad Meadows with eight markers. Chesapeake was 9-of-11 at the charity stripe for 82 percent.
