BERLIN CENTER OH- After the upset loss to Jackson Milton last Friday, the Western Reserve Blue Devils were looking for a bounce back win on Senior night, hosting another devil team in the Campbell Memorial Red Devils who were hungry for their first win of the season as they have been close a couple times, but now it was time to finish. The first quarter seemed to have been a little shocking again as Campell got out to a big 11-0 run before Western Reserve got their first buckets of the night thanks to a Ryan Gordon layup. At the end of the first, it was 17-15 Red Devils. However, that little upset possibility did not last long as Western Reserve was 39-28 at the half and never looked back as they pulled away quickly, beating Campbell 75-54, moving back to .500 with a three and three record.
Stats: Ryan Gordon finished with 26 points hitting two three from behind the arc, Noah Klasic had 10 points in the paint along with 25 total points, David Altiere had eight points, David Ashburn had five, Nick Martin finished with four points, Russell Adair with three. Meanwhile, Jake Pappagallo and Gabe Platt played excellent defense blocking shots, finishing a combined four points.
For Campbell Memorial, it was Gabe Brunn finishing with 15 points with seven of those being inside the paint, Collin Michaels with 14 points, Skevos Kauros with 10 points, Zach Luciano with six, and Christian James with five points in the game. Joey Zanni and Aziayh Flores off the bench combined for four points.
Next: Western Reserve (3-3) as of now will head to Ravenna to take on the South East Pirates (3-0) next Tuesday. Campbell (0-6) will take on the Lowellville Rockets (3-2) next Tuesday. Both games are set to tip off at 7pm.
