The ZWEST 7th grade team went on the road for the second time this week and picked up another road win over WEBO 65 to 41. A combination of great defense and the ability of West to get to the basket allowed the Eagles to get out to an early lead. Aiden Helvie lead scoring with 16 followed closely by Seward with 15 and Thomas with 12. Will Nobbe had a strong first half with 8 points. Seth Hogg added 7 followed by Maxwell and Louiso with 4 each. Connor Wood would hit a late shot for 2 and Luke Cero would add a free throw.
In the second game of the night the ZWEST B team would also use defense to jump out to an early lead. The Eagles led 30 to 8 at the half in route to a 61 to 20 win. Eli Meals had 23 points to lead the team. George Horst had 10 followed by Connor Wood with 9. Luke and Cero would chip in 8 each and Cooper Elkins had 3 to round out the scoring.
The Eagles will face WEBO again Saturday morning in the first round of the county tournament.
