A quartet of Trojans scored in double figures with Kyle Hayes’ 16 point leading the way. The senior guard canned 10-of-11 free throws and added five rebounds and five assists. Dan Boswell and Logan Prow both finished with 13 points while Boswell pulled down a game-high nine rebounds and Prow added six boards and four assists. Mason Roland was also in double figures with 12 points along with four rebounds and three steals.
The Trojans raced out to a 16-12 lead at the first break but saw the visiting Wildcats scratch their way back in the second quarter with a 11-9 scoring advantage to trim the lead to 25-23. The see-saw battle continued in the third quarter with no team able to gain more than a two point lead. When the period ended, WCHS was clinging to a slim 41-40 advantage.
That set the stage for the final eight minutes when the Trojans poured in 24 points behind the hot shooting of Hayes, Prow and Boswell. J. D. Newton added eight points and six rebounds in the victory while Max McMain chipped in with two points, followed by one point from Madison Melton. Webster owned a 34-26 rebounding advantage and nailed 19-of-26 free throw in the contest.

The Trojans continued their impressive play last Thursday night with a convincing win over the Cardinals in Salem. It was the WCHS defense that took the spotlight in the victory, holding the Cardinals to eight points in the entire second half. Webster’s man-to-man defense in the first half wasn’t quite getting the job done against the hot-shooting Cardinals, so Coach Jon Newton switch to a zone defense at halftime and it completely shut down the LCHS offense, while forcing 16 Cardinal turnovers.
The score was tied 14-14 at the first break but the Trojans used a 6-0 run to open the second quarter and gain a 31-27 lead at intermission. Dan Boswell scored six of his team-high 14 points in the period. He also had two rebounds and three steals.

Newton finished with nine points and four boards while Mason Roland added eight points and three steals. Cole Hazelwood, Max McMain, Zach Pugh and Zac Shoulders all finished with two points each.
