Westminster downs rival Augusta Prep in non-region matchup




Westminster knocked off region rival Augusta Prep 46-35 Saturday in the championship game of Prep's tip-off tournament, which has become an annual tradition for the area's private schools.

Jelani Watson-Gayle (Westminster) drives past
Miles Downing (Augusta Prep) Saturday.
Senior Nygel Eaddy led the way with 11 points, and Junior Jelani Watson-Gayle added 10, including 8 consecutive third quarter points that gave the Wildcats a double digit lead that would not be threatened again.

The matchup was the first of at least three this season between the GISA region rivals. Saturday's was a non-region contest. But the emotion TJ Wright showed after his three point play in the third quarter and the extra spring in Michael Dukes's step during his second half tip-dunk in transition showed Saturday's game meant more than the average early season duel.

Miles Downing led the Cavaliers with 16.
