Moe leads Trojans past City

The crowd’s energy didn’t cease after a tough loss for the Trojan girls; it only fueled the boys fight as the undefeated team lit up the Little Hawk court. There was no stopping the boys team in their battle for victory last night as they caged the Little Hawks in a 75-62 victory. 

West boys started off the game letting City High get the first points on the board, but Pete Moe ’22 and Savion Taylor ’23 put two three-pointers on the board and gave West an early lead. By the end of the first quarter the Trojans led the game 21-15. It did not stop there. Moe had two dunks early on in the second quarter and Jack McCaffery ’25 had a quick layup off a pass from sophomore Kareem Earl. This put the boys ten points ahead of the Little Hawks 39-29 at halftime. As the crowd was getting loud on both sides the Trojans stayed locked in at the start of the second half. Earl had back-to-back buckets and with the help of his teammates, they ended the third quarter 58-46. The Little Hawks tried to keep up with the boys, but there was no stopping them last night. 

Moe scored a total of 30 points leading this otherwise young team to victory. Sophomore Jacob Koch put 16 points on the board followed closely by Jack McCaffery with 14 points. There was no stopping this team last night and they remain undefeated. You can catch the teams playing again on January 21, which will count as a Mississippi Valley Conference game.

In the meantime, the boys face off against the Linn-Mar Lions at home on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
