West’s eighth grade A and B teams knocked off Ulysses in two key road wins.

The B-team won 28-17 and was led by dual threat Junior Mendez and Beau Fick who each scored eight points in the win.

Daniel Dowell added six.

“We got off to a good start and led throughout,” West caoch Eric Olmstead said. “We played some pretty good defense.

The win advanced the B-team’s record to 4-4.

The Warrior A-team jumped out to a quick start but had to hold on late for a 39-33 win.

The Warriors were led by Brent Lenear who scored 12 points including two three-pointers. Dylan Holt added 11.

West jumped out to an 11-5 lead in the first quarter and extended the margin to 24-13 by halftime.

West’s biggest lead came at the ebd of the third quarter, 35-21.

But the Warriors worked the clock in the fourth while the Cubs pushed to aggressively cut the deficit.

The Warriors only scored four points in the fourth while Ulysses scored 12. Daniel Dowell hit free throws down the stretch to preserve the 39-33 win.

“It was a crazy game,” Olmstead said. “We caused them problems with the man defense, then we got complacent. We relaxed, and they came back on us. But we held on, and we had a good effort.”

West is now 6-2 on the seaosn and will host Guymon Thursday.
