CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – Notre Dame trailed for most of the first half, and took a short-lived lead in the third quarter.
But Parkersburg Catholic led after the third period, and for much of the fourth.
Fighting Irish star Jaidyn West assisted on the three-point shot that gave the Irish a 38-37 late in the game.
But it was a Marshall baseball commit that gave the Crusaders the lead for good.
West’s three-point heave with less than six seconds in the game was too strong, and Notre Dame fell at home on Thursday, 40-38, in a matchup between a pair of state tournament teams from a year ago.
Wade Britton led the way with 11 points for NDHS, while West had 10.
