Defensive 2nd boosts Webb

Friday, January 11, 2013

BRENTWOOD -- The Webb Middle Boys got a big boost from their defense in the second quarter of Thursday night's game at Currey Ingram and rode the momentum to a 10-point, 29-19 conference win.

Jack North jump started the Feet offense, banking four of Webb's seven first quarter points. That early boost put Webb on top 7-5 after the opening frame, but it was a stifling defensive effort in the second quarter that proved to be the backbreaker for Currey Ingram.

Webb outscored the Mustangs 8-0 and pulled ahead to lead by 10 at the intermission. Webb led by as many as 15 points in the second half, but the Mustangs were able to rally and make a run at the visitors as the game progressed.

Webb added 14 more in the final two quarters of play to seal the deal on the win and improve to 5-0 in conference play.

"I thought our post players set a good tone early by being aggressive and getting to the free throw line. We also did a better job moving the ball in transition and getting it to the open man," said Webb coach James Garcia.

Webb will be back on the road Monday as the Feet travel to F.H, Jenkins in Nashville.
