The leading scorer was Chasity Asberry with a hammering 12 points at the finish of the game Saturday night.

“Five of  the six free throws in the fourth quarter sealed the winning victory,” Assistant Coach Dawn Quinton said.

” In the fourth quarter there were only 2 turnovers, after having fourteen in the first 3 quarters,” she added.

When the clock rang and the last second of the fourth quarter was over, the sweet smell of victory and hard work  was very evident to be present in the air. The final score was 36 – 31.

The Webster Warriors played the Central Braves on Jan. 22 and they really didn’t show up to play as they should have, Coach Wan U said. The scorers in that game were Chris Dew, a senior shooting guard who had 12; Ray Hawkins, a senior power forward who had 7; Kaleb Porter, a sophomore point guard who had 8 and Corey Burrel, who had 9. Webster fell short against Central, 94-44.

The next day, the Webster Warriors played the McLain Titans and did really well. The Warriors were with the Titans the whole game and it came down to the final seconds. But the Titans were not able to catch back up and the Warriors were able to keep the three-point lead to win 58-55. The leading scorers were Ray Hawkins, a senior power forward who had an season-high 29 points; Chris Dew, a senior shooting guard who had 9; Corey Burrel, a senior small forward who had 8 and Kaleb Porter, a sophomore point guard who had 6.

Webster plays top opponents

By Antonio Dean

Staff Writer

On Jan. 12 and 14, the Webster Warriors boys basketball team played two really good opponents. On Jan.12, Webster played the Titans from McLain High School. Webster was keeping up with the Titans, but unfortunately the Warriors came up short. However, Kaleb Porter, a sophomore guard, scored 17 points and Ray Hawkins, a senior power forward, scored 17 points as well.

A couple days later Webster faced another great opponent, the East Central Cardinals. The first half really wasn’t going Webster’s way but the team didn’t give up. When the second half started, the team was still fighting to keep up, but the Warriors really couldn’t capitalize on it and ended up falling behind and losing that night. Our high scorer for that game was Kaleb Porter, a sophomore guard, with 16 points.
