The South Webster Jeeps had what Head Coach Ryan Fenton says was their best defensive game of the year Saturday, beating the Portsmouth West Senators 65-35. The game was a neutral non-conference game.

South Webster had several big scorers. The win took a real team effort. Though some players had a better game than others, there were several responsible for making winning plays.

The Jeeps were led by Shiloah Blevins, who scored 28 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks.

“He was great for us all night, consistently knocking down jumpers and dominating the glass,” Fenton stated.

Following Blevins was Shane Zimmerman.

“Shane Zimmerman had a terrific all around game with 9 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. He was very unselfish and found his open teammates all night,” Fenton commented.

Alek Blevins also played well for the Jeeps. Blevins had 14 points, three assists and two steals.

Coach Fenton added, “Hunter Bennington brought a great spark off the bench defensively.”

The win took South Webter’s record to 6-4, 4-1.

“Defensively it was our best game of the year, and we hope to carry that over into our next game at Northwest Friday,” Fenton stated.

While the Jeeps face Northwest, West will go on to face the Oak Hill Oaks on Friday night.
