Alliance OH- The West branch boys traveled 7 miles west to participate in the Mount Union Christmas Classic. The Warriors traditionally play in this Christmas Classic every season, and this year their matchup featured the Fairless Falcons.The Warriors walked away with a 50-30 victory and improved to 3-2 on the season.


West Branch started off strong defensively only giving up just ten points at the half. The offense in the first half wasn’t all that great, but it didn’t have to be because the defense was playing spectacularly. The offense picked up in the second half and Senior Thomas Egli had a large part to do with that. He had 13 points to go along with 15 rebounds. Egli used his size to dominate the boards playing against a smaller Fairless team. 


Warrior guard Jaxon Robb also had a solid game with 9 points. He knocked down a couple of three pointers. Cooper Anderson added 7 points, while Joey Jackson and Jeremiah Thomas added 6 points. Once again, Thomas played well both offensively and defensively as he was able to collect a number of assists and steals.


Fairless struggled to find any offense as they only scored 34 points in the game. Fairless was without a couple of key players in the game for unknown reasons. Luke Schlabach led the way for Fairless with 12 points, knocking down four three pointers. Carson Colucci helped out with 6 points for  the Falcons.


West Branch will travel to Canfield on the 27th to take on a tough Cardinals team. The Warriors are 3-0 in non conference games but are 0-2 inside the EBC. Fairless drops to 3-5 with the loss and will head back home for a matchup against East Canton on Dec.30th.
