The Western Reserve Roughriders played from three-point land and used its defense to ignite its offense and dominate the St. Paul Flyers 65-41 during a home Firelands Conference boys’ basketball game Friday.
“I think our defensive intensity and our ability to take away their best offensive player in (Sal) Sortino was the key to the game,” Western coach Chris Sheldon said. “Our defense really ignited our offense.”
Senior Kevin Boose led the ’Riders with 15 points. Fellow senior Jacob Muenz also scored in double digits with 11 points.
St. Paul senior Sal Sortino was perfect from the free-throw line, going 2-for-2, but hit only two fields goals on nine attempts. He had seven points.
Both teams have non-league games today.
Western (2-1, 1-0) hosts Keystone and St. Paul (1-1, 0-1) goes to Edison.
