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.
