WESTFIELD — After falling to Clymer in the Westfield Winter Classic, the Westfield/Brocton Lady Wolverines were jumping at the chance to right their wrong and take care of business the second time around.

They did just that on Wednesday.

Led by a 24 point effort by Sophia DeMarco, the Lady Wolverines defeated Clymer by a score of 40-29 on Wednesday night at Westfield Academy in a CCAA Division 2 West girls basketball game.

“This was a huge win for us,” said Westfield/Brocton coach Dave Mathews. “I’m super proud of the girls for the way they played.”

Westfield/Brocton (2-2, 1-1) outscored Clymer (2-4, 0-2) in the second quarter 16-5, to take a 24-15 lead into halftime. The Lady Wolverines extended the lead to 35-20 after three quarters and did not trail at any point in the second half.

DeMarco hit a pair of 3-pointers and didn’t miss from the free-throw line. In addition to her 24 points, DeMarco had 10 rebounds, seven steals, four assists and three blocks.

Also contributing in the score sheet were McKayla Wolfe with eight points, Annalise Wdowiasz with five and Laura Johnston with three.

“McKayla Wolfe had an excellent game,” said Mathews. “Her defense was excellent and she got some points in transition.”

Points in transition were a key to Westfield/Brocton’s win, as Mathews credits his Diamond Press defense for causing turnovers to rattle Clymer, which led to transition points in the middle quarters of the game.

Hannah King led Clymer with nine points. Emma Wiggers had six rebounds, while Arden Hepler had seven rebounds. Kate Honey had five steals.

Westfield/Brocton is in action next, at Cassadaga Valley, on Monday.
