MASON, W.Va. — Two for the home team.

The Wahama varsity basketball programs claimed a pair of victories over Mason-county rival Hannan on Friday night during a girls-boys doubleheader held at Gary Clark Court at Wahama High School.

The Lady Falcons out together their first winning streak since the 2011-12 campaign after overcoming a 2-0 first quarter deficit before rolling to a 67-27 decision over the Lady Cats.

The White Falcons followed by leading the final 9:52 of regulation while snapping a two-game losing skid en route to a hard-fought 66-58 victory over the Wildcats.

Complete details of each contest will be available online over the weekend and also in the Tuesday sports editions of the Gallipolis Daily Tribune, Point Pleasant Register and The Daily Sentinel.
