The Comets kicked off their first pre-season scrimmage with just a one point lead, but eventually left South Point in the dust with a 104-56 victory.

West outscored the Pointers 22-21 in the first quarter, but pulled ahead with 28 points in the second. By the third quarter, West was leading 80-48.

“We played well for first scrimmage,” Coach Jeremy Webb said. “Anytime you are shooting well it leads to confidence in other areas. Our guys played really well.”

Kyle Brown led the Comets in scoring with 22 points and Arron Rayburn put up 19. Both shot 100-percent from the line. Derrick Lawson 15 and Justin Jarrell sank 12. Travis Duvall had 11 and Cody Stamper put up 10. Patrick Eldridge had eight and Harrison Bond put up four. Corey Bradly sunk one from the field and Kyle Cundiff put up one from the charity stripe.

“We still have some things on defense that we need to work on,” Webb said. “We got lazy and didn’t slide into the defensive positions. That is an area we can always improve on.”

West will face off with Huntington High at East Carter’s Heart of the Parks Saturday.

“Usually Huntington is a very athletic team and they played well last year,” Webb said. “Hopefully it will be a confidence building game, and we will try to carry that into the season. They like to control the pace of the game but our team can play with that type of opponent and not let them run the show.”

Tip off for Saturday’s match up is set for 3:15 p.m.
