Blue Blazes Fall to Thornton Academy

The Westbrook High School boys' basketball team was defeated by Thornton Academy in the Western Class 'A' Quarterfinals, 41-40. Westbrook, the tournament's seventh seed, controlled much of the game with its stifling defense and deliberate offense. But Jeffrey Winnie's three-pointer with nine seconds remaining proved to be the game-winner for Thornton Academy. Thornton is the tournament's second seed.
