January 28, 2012By Tom Schermerhorn of West Noble High School
The West Noble Chargers and Fairfield Falcons played a barnburner on Friday night in Benton. Fortunately for the Charger faithful, West Noble was able to connect from the free throw line down the stretch to seal the victory 57-53. The Chargers(7-8) received a solid floor game from junior Nick Thomas, while Nick Noe, Keith Gibson, Jordan Younce and Armando Rosales pounded away inside. Phil Miller played a great game defensively for the Chargers against the talented Falcons. Nick Thomas led the way for West Noble with 16 points while Nick Noe scored 12 and added 8 rebounds while fellow post Keith Gibson offered up 10 points and 11 rebounds. Drew Schermerhorn knocked down a couple of three pointers in the second half on his way to 8 points while Phil Miller added 7 points including a couple of huge free throws down the stretch. Great job Chargers!
