Patriots Fall To Iron Mountain

The Westwood boys basketball team held Iron Mountain to their lowest offensive output of the season Friday night but it wasn’t enough as the Mountaineers topped the Patriots 53-35 in Mid Peninsula Conference action.

Iron Mountain scored the first four points of the game but Ty Alderton got the Patriots within one with an old fashioned three-point play. The Mountaineers led 13-7 after one quarter but Westwood capped a 9-4 run with a Marcus Boase three-pointer to get within one possession.

However, Iron Mountain scored the final four points of the half to take a 23-16 lead into the break. The Mountaineers opened the second half on a 10-5 run and led by double digits for the rest of the night.

Taylor Dellangelo led Westwood with 12 points while Alderton added six. The Patriots are now 4-2 and host Gladstone on Tuesday.
