Wolverines take top spot with 15-point win over Titans

TORREY HIGHLANDS – Through the first round of Palomar League play, Westview has established itself as the team to beat. Tuesday night at home, the Wolverines were in control from the start against Poway in a 63-48 victory that gives them sole possession of first place in league.

“We haven’t really had this in our program and it is a new experience for all of us –and we’re ready to embrace the challenge,” said Westview senior forward Patrick Govea. “We’re trying to establish a tradition here at Westview.”

Westview (18-4, 5-0 Palomar) led by five after the first quarter and extended that lead early in the second quarter. The Wolverines had a 27-20 lead over Poway (16-8, 4-1) after a first half in which they held Titans senior center Sam Beeler scoreless.

“The game plan was to try and get them out of the paint and lock them down, so they couldn’t get easy foul shots or easy layups,” Govea said.

In the third quarter, Westview scored the first six points to quickly build a double-digit lead. Poway slowly narrowed the deficit to come within four points late in quarter, and the Titans trailed by seven entering the fourth.

Westview opened the fourth quarter on a 7-0 run to take control of the game. With 6:20 remaining the Wolverines took a 51-37 lead on a Govea three-pointer, and went on to comfortably win the first-place battle.

“It’s where you want to be – you want to be at the top,” said Westview head coach Kyle Smith. “We know the target is big now on our back, and the second time around…we have to be ready for anything.”

Govea led Westview with 21 points, and was one of three Wolverines in double figures. After missing the first 12 games of the season with a broken wrist on his shooting hand, the 6-foot-4 senior has been a key element to Westview’s current 10-game winning streak.

“It was tough to sit out but since I’ve been on varsity, I’ve seen other players get injured and go through adversity like that,” Govea said. “I learned from them and tried to be a leader for our team when I was out.”

With the victory, Westview is now sitting in pole position halfway through Palomar League play. The Wolverines’ lone league title in school history came two seasons ago in the Valley League.

“It’s very exciting to build off these wins and be the team to beat now, and just have that confidence,” Govea said.

In a losing effort, junior guard Derek Babaish led Poway with 12 points. After being shut out in the first half Beeler finished with 11 for the Titans, who have lost three straight to the Wolverines.
