Gates plays key role in Westerly’s victory


WOOD RIVER JCT. — Taber Gates filled in at point guard and played a major role in Westerly Middle’s 66-40 boys’ basketball victory against Chariho on Thursday.

Gates ran the offense well and led all scorers with 16 points, said Bulldog coach Chris Sammataro.

Dave Tiedemann scored 14 points including 11 in the first quarter which ended with Westerly on top 14-10.

The Bulldogs went on to lead 31-20 at halftime and 49-35 after three periods.

Jalen Valentin had 12 rebounds and nine points for Westerly, which improved to 4-2 overall and in the Southern Division.

Gates, an eighth-grader who normally plays the two guard, moved to point guard because John Luzzi is out with a knee injury. Luzzi averaged 12.6 points per game through the first five games.

Chariho fell to 1-5 overall and in league play.

Westerly’s next game is Thursday against Wheeler (10:30 a.m.) in the Westerly Middle School tournament.
