Bland vs East Mont

The Mustangs were broken.

Coming out on Tuesday evening with a blistering full-court press, the Bland County Bears buried Eastern Montgomery 74-50 at home, avenging a season-opening loss to the Mustangs on Nov. 27 in Elliston.

Senior Jake Watters paced the Bears’ attack with 24 points, including two second-half dunks that energized the Rocky Gap faithful.

Bland County jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, going into the half up 39-22.

The 1-2 Bears will travel to Chilhowie on Dec. 11.
