-A A +A

Despite already tripling last season’s win total, the Williamstown Demons are not satisfied and continue to work hard in their quest for the program’s first double-digit winning season in five years.
Williamstown moved one step closer to its 10th win with a 58-55 victory over Eminence in action this week to put win number nine in the books, matching the most victories for the program since winning 10 games in 2009.
And with four games remaining in the season, Williamstown not only has a chance to record double digit wins, but two victories will give the program its best season since winning 17 games in 2005.
In the three-point win over Eminence, Brennan Stanley led the team offensively with 24 points, including nine field goals, more than the rest of the team had combined.
David Jump, who remains one of the state’s top scorers with an average of more than 27 points per game, was next for the winners with 19 points, including three 3-pointers and six free throws.
Jon Jump also had a nice game for the Demons with seven points, followed by Chaz Jordan with five, Dustin Smith with two, and Carter Sacrione with one to round out the Williamstown scoring.
Williamstown already took its first shot at double digit wins but came away on the losing end of a 91-81 score at Silver Grove. In that game, the Demons scored the most points for the program in nearly four years, dating back to an 86-point performance on Feb. 13, 2010 against Augusta.
David Jump led the Demons against Silver Grove with 36 points, hitting five 3-pointers and seven two-point field goals while connecting on 7-of-9 free throw attempts.
Stanley was next for Williamstown with 12 points, including a pair from long range. Jon Jump and Dustin Smith added 11 points each to give the Demons four players in double digits.
Sarcione was next with five points for Williamstown, followed by Chaz Jordan with four and Angel Walker with two.
The Demons will host Trimble County on Feb. 15 before closing out the regular season on the road at Owen County on Feb 18.
