Spartans smash Noble

WALTONVILLE — The Spartans held Noble scoreless for the opening 12 minutes on their way to a 53-26 win Tuesday night.

“We wanted to make sure we had a lot of effort, a lot of energy,” Waltonville coach Brian Gamber said. “Tonight would have been an easy night to have a letdown.”

Waltonville scored the opening 21 points of the game and were never challenged. Jordan Hale led the Spartans with 15 points. Justin Winchester added nine, and Hunter Coggins finished with seven.

Waltonville took a 32-4 lead into halftime, and Gamber removed his starters for the final time in the third quarter. Every player on the Waltonville roster appeared in the game.

“Some of those guys, unfortunately, haven’t had a whole lot of opportunity,” Gamber said. “We’ve been in some tough games the first week. It was good for them to be able to run their sets. I thought they did a pretty good job.”

Waltonville’s largest lead of the game came at the end of the third quarter. Justin Winchester converted a three-point play from the foul line. The points put Waltonville up 47-13.

The matchup was the first home game of the season for the Spartans, and Gamber’s first as head coach after playing in the Christopher Tournament to start the season.

“It was good. We had a good crowd,” Gamber said. “I know that our atmosphere is always going to be good.

“You have the people that come to every single game. It’s nice to see them on the front row. We had a good student turnout.”

Waltonville is 4-0 and travels to Sandoval on Tuesday.

“It’s only four games in, we’ve got a long way to go,” Gamber said. “So we just have to keep grinding out, have a really good week of practice, get ready for two big games next week.”
