DAYTON – West Side was cold as a cucumber on Friday night in a cross-county home game against Preston and nothing was going into the hoop for the Pirates during the first quarter. Preston scored the first 15 points and the score at the end of the first quarter was 23-2.
The only points for West Side in the first stanza finally came on a shot by Jason Wade. The Pirates scored 10 more points in the second quarter, six of which were free throws. At half-time the score was 37-12 for the Indians.
Wyatt Beckstead opened the second half with a three-pointer, followed by a two-point field goal by Wade and another three by Matt Turnbow. This sudden scoring woke up the Indians and by the end of the third period the score was 58-29. Somehow the Pirates dodged the 30-point mercy rule for the rest of the game and the final score rested at 67-42 for Preston.
