The Washington Demon boy’s basketball team inked their second win of the season last night beating Tipton 54-44.

Washington jumped out to the lead in the first quarter and never looked back scoring 15 in the first and 16 in the second to take a 31- 18 lead into the halftime break.

The Demons came out of the break and continued to score leading after three 45-33, but in the fourth quarter the offense stalled, as Justin Hoffman went 2-10 from the free throw line, Alex Coker went 1-4 and the Demons only had one field goal.

Tipton tried to make a late game push with a couple of threes from Scott Pelzer, but the Demons hung on and got the win.

Despite the missed free throws, Hoffman led the team with 19 for the game.

Demon head coach Bryce Smeins said he has played a lot of ugly losses, but never has a win ever been ugly, and that his kids deserved to win the game.

Washington will have a week off, and play again on Saturday.
