Beloit OH- Coach Brown and West Branch were looking for a momentum building win before tournament play starts in just one week. The Warriors were able to grab that quality win over Girard 51-41 who came into the game with a 14-6 record. 


Both teams really struggled to shoot the ball especially in the first half. The Warriors picked things up in the second half as they shot it better, hitting some big shots, but Girard continued to struggle from the perimeter. Most of the Indians’ points came off of layups.


On senior night, Senior Dru Deshields was able to score his final basket with West Branch as he has been out the whole year with an Injury. The cheers from both West Branch and Girard were heartwarming to see as Dru came off the court after making a layup.


 Joey JacksonJackson had a solid performance with 15 points. He was able to knock down two three pointers as well. Cooper Anderson was strong also scoring 11 points and doing a great job rebounding. Finally, sophomore Camden Lane was big down the stretch scoring some important baskets.


The Warriors had a difficult time stopping Thomas Cardiero who led all scorers with 19 points. Mike Palmer contributed 10 points for the Indians.


With the win, West Branch improves to 11-9 on the season. The Warriors will travel to Columbiana to take on Heartland Christian tonight at 7 pm. Girard drops to 14-7 and will be back in action on Tuesday at Springfield.
