It wasn't looking very promising at the half for the West Central boys’ basketball team as it trailed Central Elkader, 23-10, on Friday, Jan, 27.

A 13-point deficit can be a lot for a team like West Central to overcome, because WC has struggled to put points on the board at times. Against a very beatable Central Elkader team, the Blue Devils rallied in the second half.
