Despite going down 12-0 at the start of the game, the Colts kept the game close into the third quarter, eventually losing to the Cavaliers 89-59.

Ryan McCormick led West Stanly (5-10, 2-4 RRC) with 21 points while B.J. Hill added 14 points.

West then cut the lead down to nine points with five minutes left in the third before another Cavs run pushed the lead out to 22 points and Cuthbertson went on to the win.

“We actually played fairly well until midway through the third quarter. [Cuthbertson] is very talented and plays very hard,” West Stanly head coach John Thompson said.

“Our defense wasn’t very good, especially in transition. If we took a quick shot or turned it over, they converted it into points.”
