WO-S throttles BC; Bobcats seal berth

BRIDGE CITY — West Orange-Stark had the hot hand early as they went on to down the Bridge City Cardinals 71-46 in District 21-3A play at Cardinal Gym Friday night.

The Mustangs (24-7, 11-0) went on a 23-8 spurt in the first quarter and an 18-8 run in the second period to take a comfortable 41-16 halftime edge over the Cardinals (12-16, 2-9).

Bridge City battled hard in the second half as both teams scored 30 points apiece after intermission.

Junior Chase Rutledge and senior Laquarious Paige powered the Mustang arsenal as WO-S remains perfect in 21-3A play.

Rutledge finished with a game-high 19 points and had five rebounds while Paige went for 16 points and grabbed six boards.

That duo was hot in the early going.

Rutledge buried two three-pointers in the first period while Paige chimed in with seven points, including a trey. They then combined for 10 more points in the second period.

The Mustangs forced the Cardinals into 28 turnovers, 19 of them coming in the first half.

Guard Brandon Joubert had 11 points for the Mustangs while Tre Spencer added eight.

The Mustangs finished with a 42-34 rebounding advantage. Tavin Terrell came off the bench to snag a game-high 12 rebounds while Corey Carcisse hauled down nine.

Senior post Alex Bingham led the Cardinal arsenal with yet another double-double as he finished with 11 points and yanked down 11 rebounds.

Guard Malcolm Busby contributed 10 points and seven rebounds. Byron Bacon filtered in eight points and grabbed five boards while Conner Wilbur chimed in with five rebounds.

Bacon scored seven of his points for the Cardinals in the second half while Busby had six. Rutledge had eight second-half points for WO-S while Spencer scored six.

The Mustangs finished with 14 turnovers and went 7-of-10 from the free-throw line. The Cardinals, meanwhile, shot 12-of-20 from the charity stripe.

The Mustangs can win the outright 21-3A title Tuesday night when they take on second-place Silsbee (10-1 in district) at Lamar University’s Montagne Center. The JV game will start at 6 p.m. followed by the varsity.

Bridge City will close out its season Monday on the road at Orange County rival Orangefield.
