Piketon & WF
roll to easy wins
while ZT falls to
Westfall was very impressive
Saturday afternoon as they used
their great size and athleticism
to dominate West Union on the
defensive end and on the glass.
The Mustangs did struggle at
times putting the ball in the hole
which allowed West Union to
hang around; however, Westfall
was never really threatened from
the second quarter on as they
rolled to a 46-32 win.

Alek Stonerock took home team
MVP honors. The sophomore
scored 13 points, grabbed 10
rebounds, and recorded four
steals. Teammate Derek
Robertson scored a game-high
15 points and pulled down nine
rebounds while point guard Neal
Hegarty had six points and five
rebounds for the Mustangs.
Westfall had 10 different
players score in the win.

Next up for the SVC was host
Zane Trace. The Pioneers, who
are continuing to battle through
injuries, were without Colton
Whitehouse and were able to use
Joel Tripp and Mike Moore
even though they are not back to
100-percent. The Pioneers were
facing a very talented and
athletic Africentric team, and
they proved to be too much
beating ZT 65-30.

Tripp was named team MVP
with seven points. Ben LaGard
added six points.

The final game of the night
featured SVC-favorite Piketon
and the Redstreaks did not
disappoint at all. Piketon
dominated Greenfield McClain
65-28. Like Westfall, Piketonâ
€™s defense was the story in
the first half, but their inability
to convert kept McClain in the
game; however, in the third
quarter, Piketon exploded
opening up more than a 30-
point lead.

Piketon’s Evan Legg was
named MVP with 27 points.
Sophomore Craigen Moore
added 15 points in the win.
