PREP BASKETBALL: Westview holds off Concord in OT thriller

EMMA — It’s not often that one of the first comments you hear from both coaches in a high school boys basketball game is “That was a good game.”

But such was the case Friday night when the hometown Westview Warriors defeated the Concord Minutemen 76-71 in overtime.

“Our kids played well and you have to give Concord a lot of credit,” Westview coach Rob Yoder said. “There were times we had them on the brink and they hit some tough shots to get back in the game. We are happy to get the win.”

Concord coach Steve Austin said, “We had our chances. Westview just shot the ball extremely well. Westview is a good team. I was pleased with our effort. We played the way we are going to have to if we want to win sectional.”

Westview has a good 1-2 scoring punch in senior Jordyn Bontrager and junior Chandler Aspy, but it was senior Jamar Weaver who did a lot of unexpected damage for the Warriors.

Weaver had an incredible game making 10-of-12 field goals (4-of-5 from 3-point range) and 2-of-3 free throws for 26 points.

“That’s an all-time high,” the senior said with a big grin on his face.”I was in a zone and my teammates kept getting me the ball.”

Weaver netted six points in the extra session.

“That is as good as Jamar has every shot the ball,” Yoder said. “He hit some big shots for us and it was not just straight shots some of them were off the dribble.”

Weaver didn’t do all the damage as Bontrager tossed in a game-high 30 points and Aspy chipped in with 15.

“We knew Weaver could shoot, but we just left him open too many times,” Austin said. “I think we were so focused on the other two that we lost track of him at times. Bontrager and Aspy are good players, but we were not expecting this from Weaver.”
