Washington beats West Branch in scrimmage

By John Butters, The JOURNAL


The Washington Demons edged the West Branch Bears by one point 30-29, in a scrimmage Monday night at the Iowa Mennonite School gym.

The teams played for just one half, consisting of two 8-minute quarters. The game does not count for the season?s records of either team.

Washington took an early lead and held it throughout the game. Down one point in the final minute, the Bears recovered a loose ball and failed to score on several opportunities.

Washington plays their first game on Dec. 1 when they host the Muscatine Muskies.
