By Kris Freeman, Sports Information Director

WHITE HOUSE – The Westmoreland Eagles were clearly outmatched inside and out Tuesday night at White House High School, but the efficiency of the game plan for the Blue Devils made it even tougher in an 83-37 victory.

White House rolled to 57 points in the first half and by the final eight minutes, ended the night with a running clock to improve to 12-7 overall and 3-1 in District 9-AA. The Devils are tied with Greenbrier (9-7, 3-1) for second place behind Sycamore in the district standings, and travel on Friday to play the Bobcats at 7:30 p.m. in Robertson County.

Four players hit double figures on Tuesday and White House emptied the bench in the second half.

Senior guards Jared Ward and Octavian Arnold led the way with a combined 27 points, as Jared dropped in a pair of early threes and six perfect foul shots on his way to 14 points all in the first half. Octavian scored seven and six in each half for 13.

Durstin Adams scored 12 inside, with fellow junior Evan Webster knocking down a pair of threes and scoring 10 points off the bench, then junior Zak Laamal powered for nine points in the paint.

Senior Andrew Nixon scored eight, then a number of different Blue Devils got into the scoring column. Jacob McDonald had four, James Willbanks three, and Noah Johnston, Cole Pond, Nathan Bowman, Quad Lucas and Ethan Droz all two.

Westmoreland was led by Kirby Bickerton with 16, but the Eagles fell to 0-4 in district play and 2-15 overall.

White House has two straight road games coming up with Greenbrier and Harpeth (Tuesday) then comes home on Friday the 18th for Cheatham County.
