Last night, WA boys basketball varsity won 64-56 against Wayland, putting them at 1-2 on the season.

Throughout the game, the score was even, consistently flipping between who was in the lead. During the first quarter, tensions were quite high and it was anyone’s game. WA managed to defend well during the first quarter, and going into the second quarter, the teams were neck and neck.

In the second quarter WA began to take the lead. They defended well, stopping seven shots while making shots of their own. The team went on the attack, trying to make as many shots as possible.  They got the edge by making six three-pointers out of seventeen shots, putting the score at 32-28. It seemed that WA was going to continue their lead into the third quarter, however that was not the case.

The start of the third quarter was not looking good for WA, they caught two early fouls and it seemed that Wayland was going to take the lead. Wayland made a three-point shot, putting them one point ahead of WA at 36-37. Their lead did not last long however, WA pulled ahead, they took the lead back with a three-pointer putting the score at 44-42. It seemed as if Wayland would have the lead at the end of the quarter, however during the last minute, WA made a shot which put them back in the lead. The score was 48-46 at the end of the quarter.

At the start of the fourth quarter, WA put in work, giving them a large lead. They were consistently stopping Wayland from scoring, while still pushing their own score up. At the peak of WA’s success, they were eleven points ahead, the score was 57-46. Wayland started to make a bit of a comeback later on into the fourth quarter,  but they were not able to pull ahead. WA went on the defensive toward the end of the game ending with a final score of 64-56.

Throughout the game, the two teams seemed to gain respect for each other. At the end of the game both teams lined up genuinely telling each other “good game”. It was a very close game, however WA was able to pull ahead and get the win.
