December 9, 2012Monroe Central Jr.- Sr. High School
Written by: The Star Press: Monroe Central 44, Wes-Del 30: Justin Evans scored 17 of the 30 Wes-Del points. Teammate Sam Paul followed with nine. Chase Bly scored 15 points and Jentry Flesher chipped in with 8 points and 10 rebounds for Monroe Central, which had to rely on its defense all evening.
“We struggled putting the ball in the basket,” said Monroe Central coach Luke Zartman, who noted his team was drained after a 70-42 loss Friday to Jay County. “We talked all season to the guys about how when you struggle offensively, your defense can win you ballgames, and that definitely was the case tonight.”
Wes-Del won the JV game 40 to 34. Next up for the Bears will be the Union Rockets on Friday at Union with the JV game starting at 6:00 PM.
