In a final tuneup before Three Rivers League play begins, the West Linn Lions (9-4, 0-0 TRL) led the entire game and defeated the visiting Westview Wildcats (7-4, 1-0 Metro Conference) 64-56 on Jan. 8.
Anthony Mathis, sophomore guard, led all scorers with 21 points, including 13 points in
third quarter. Captain Ryan Shearmire, junior post, added 11 points and 10 rebounds.
“It felt good to not ride the bus to a game and play in front of a great home crowd again,” Shearmire said.
The Wildcats were led by 20 points from Dyrall Goods, senior guard.
The Lions will open league play Friday at 7 p.m. at Clackamas High School (7-6, 0-0 TRL) against the Cavaliers. The Lions swept the series against the Cavs last season 2-0.
