The Westlake boys varsity basketball team raced to a 43-22 halftime lead and withstood a third quarter Amherst rally to win, 66- 58 at home last night.
The Demons sank seven 3 point shots in the first half, courtesy of Justin Garcia (3), Jacob May (2), Anthony Rego and Matt Sarsam to build a big lead. Amherst came back in the third quarter and cut the Demon lead, but the Demons pulled away late with additional Garcia and May 3 pointers.
Westlake was led in scoring by Rego with 22 points, Garcia with 17 points and May with 15 points.
The Demons are 4-9 (4-5 conference) and play at home on Tuesday against Berea Midpark.
