Multiple Teams · Varsity Boys Split a Home Weekend Double Header

The Warrior Basketball Team split a pair of home games this past weekend.  Friday night the Warriors defeated Union in very impressive fashion.  The team used a balanced scoring attack to defeat the Rockets 85-50.  Below is the summary of the game written by Ben Breiner of the Muncie Star Press:

Wes-Del exited the first quarter Friday night with a seven-point lead against Union.

Apparently it wasn’t enough.

The Warriors turned up their press after that and dominated the Rockets 85-50 to pick up the first Mid-Eastern Conference win of the young season. Wes-Del (3-1, 1-0) opened things up with a 29-9 second quarter to take its first win in the series since 2010.

“Defensively we locked in in the second quarter,” Warriors coach John McGlothin said. “Our defensive intensity picked up a lot.

“From that point on, we fed off of our defense.”

Bryce Marsh led Wes-Del with 15 points, Samson Waters added 14 and Sutter Foster had 13. A total of 10 players scored points and 13 played, which McGlothin called the sign of a good team win.

Saturday the Warriors fell to Monroe Central 53-46.  The boys trailed early in the 3rd quarter by 18 points, but clawed their way back within 3 points late in the game.  The Warriors were led Saturday night by Sam Smoot’s 14 points.  The season record is now 3-2 and 1-1 in the MEC.  The team will play at Wapahani on Friday and home vs Daleville on Saturday.
