WINCHESTER, Va. — Balanced scoring and an effective defense were two parts of Washington’s equation in its 74-56 road win over Millbrook last Wednesday.
The Patriots improved to 9-3 in beating the host Pioneers for the second time this season.
Washington’s pressure defense was able to keep Rze Culbreath and his teammates off balance with turnovers and other floor errors.
Kendell Smith had one of his best all-around games of the season when he had 17 rebounds and 16 points. Christian Coles helped fuel the Washington offense with his 15 points and Dominque Newman added another 13 points. The fourth Patriot in double figures was Jerome Jones with his 10 points. Jones was also credited with 10 rebounds.
Millbrook had 27 turnovers against the Washington defense.
The Patriots play county rival Jefferson on Friday in a home game. And then Washington will face unbeaten Martinburg at home on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
