HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — With or without 20-20 vision, this was something to see.

Fairland senior Tyler Campbell posted a 20-20 game as the Dragons routed the Tolsia Rebels 69-32 on Saturday morning in the Huntington Invitational.

Campbell scored 20 points including a 3-pointer and hauled down 20 rebounds as the Dragons improved to 11-6.

The win came on the heel of a loss on Friday night in the invitational against Tug Valley.

“We were concerned how we would respond,” said Fairland coach Nathan Speed.

“We had a tough game on Friday and had to come right back early the next morning. But our guys did a nice job and Tyler just had a monster game. You’re no going to see that kind of performance very often.”

Campbell had 6 points in the first quarter as Fairland took a 15-5 lead.

Up 26-15 at the half, Chance Short scored 8 points in the third quarter to put the Dragons in front 43-27.

Campbell scored 9 points while Isaiah Howell and Hayden James scored 7 points each in the fourth quarter.

Kollin Van Horn added 12 points and five rebounds for the Dragons.

Short ended the game with 10 points while Luke Thomas had four assists and three steals.
