WESTFIELD - Kyle Carpenter's 3-point shooting fueled Sherman's 53-44 victory over Westfield (3-7, 1-3) on Thursday, Jan. 7 in CCAA West 2 boys high school basketball.

Carpenter finished with five 3-pointers, including a key trey to start the second quarter and another one on the team's first possession of the third quarter.

"Carpenter shot real well," Westfield coach Bob North said. "We talked about finding him and don't lose him and he hit a three to start the second quarter and one to open the second half."

The Wolverines held a 26-25 halftime lead, but the Wildcats (6-3, 4-0) went on a small run to start the third quarter before outscoring the home team, 28-18 in the second half.

Carpenter finished with 15 points while Jared Gleason had 16 points, nine rebounds and three steals. Chris Robson added five rebounds and three assists while Colby Parks dished out seven assists.

"Jared Gleason did a good job going to the basket," North noted. "They were tough to guard for us."

David Grayson led Westfield with 17 points while Jonathan Wilson had 12. Max Bates pulled down 11 rebounds and Trevor North had 6 in defeat.

"We have been shooting pretty well," North said. "We have to take it to the basket, too. We have to be more aggressive going to the basket. We can't live or die by the three. We have to be more well rounded."


CLYMER - What would have been a game-winning 3-pointer hit the back iron and Brocton escaped with a 42-40 win over Clymer.

The Bulldogs (8-3, 1-3) led by six late in the fourth quarter, but a 3-pointer by the Pirates' Josh Summers pulled the host within three. After two free throws from Brocton's Ryan Johnson put the guests up by five, Clymer's Adam Honey made a 3-pointer to make it 42-40. The Pirates (3-8, 2-3) then stole the inbounds pass and called timeout with 4.2 seconds left to set up the final play, but the shot didn't fall.

Aaron Riforgiato led Brocton with 12 points and nine of his team's 30 rebounds. Alec Chelton added 11 points and five assists while Steven Krystofiak had 10 points and four blocked shots. Johnson also grabbed nine rebounds in the win.

Honey finished with 16 points while Dylan Neckers had 11 points and four assists. Justin Svetz finished with four steals and four of his team's 14 rebounds.

"That basically won the game right there," Clymer coach Dan White said of the 30-14 rebounding disparity. "They had a lot of second-chance points."
