Casey Harrison scored 26 points to lead Wahama to a 61-47 victory over
visiting Calhoun Friday night.
The Red Devils started slowly and that proved to be the difference in the
game as the two teams played on an even keel following that.
Wahama jumped out to a 25-10 first quarter lead as Harrison and Brent Clark
combined for most of the White Falcons' points.
Calhoun rallied in the second quarter and trailed by only eight at the half.
But Wahama surged again in the third quarter before the Red Devils rallied
again in the fourth period.
Zach Moore led the 0-11 Red Devils with 16 points, 11 rebounds and seven
Andrew Norman played an inspired game and added 10 points while Josh DeWeese
chipped in with nine and Lucas Morford eight.
Jacob Dodd had four points
while playing most of the game on a sore knee.
Justin Gerwig, Kyle Keesler and Chuck Kendall all played but did not score.
DeWeese added nine rebounds while Norman and Morford had five steals each.
Calhoun dropped the junior varsity game 69-40 despite the one-quarter
outburst of Keesler.
Keesler came off the bench in the second quarter to
score 14 points and lead the Red Devils from 20 points down (25-5) to within
13 (39-26) at the half.
But Keesler was limited to just one quarter of junior varsity action since
he was needed to play in the varsity contest.
Without Keesler in the third period and with the officiating going heavily
in Wahama's favor the Red Devils were outscored 22-2 giving the Falcons a
51-28 lead after three essentially putting the game out of reach.
Harold McCumbers and Kendall backed Keesler with 12 points each. Gerwig
added two while Cai Clothier, Greg Myers, Anthony Richards and Noah Sweeney
all played but did not score.
McCumbers led the Red Devils on the boards with eight while Kendall added
six, Richards five and Clothier four.
Kendall also had four blocks and six steals. McCumbers added four steals for
the Red Devils, now 0-7.
Calhoun seeks to get on the winning side of the board Tuesday night when it
travels to Clay for a doubleheader.
