ATHENA — Weston-McEwen rallied from a 15-point deficit Saturday night to post a 61-57 victory over Grant Union in Blue Mountain Conference boys basketball.

Tyler Peterson scored 15 points for W-M and Nick Pease added 14.

W-M (6-4 in league, 11-7 overall) trailed 40-25 at halftime.

“We made some adjustments at halftime against their zone,” W-M coach Brian Pickard said. “We were patient on offense and got some easy baskets.”

Defensively, the TigerScots tightened the clamps on Grant Union’s Mitch Moultan. He ended the night with 23 points, but managed just one field goal in the second half because of a solid defensive effort by Calvin Thacker, Pickard said.

Lance Thacker tallied 20 points to lead W-M past Enterprise, 77-70, Friday. Peterson and Jacob Ramirez had 10 steals apiece and Thacker had nine against the Outlaws.

W-M’s next game is Friday at Elgin.
