Leading 18-16 after one quarter, the 3-8 Lions outscored the Blue Devils, 19-4, to take a 35-20 halftime lead.
West Haven managed to trim Foran’s lead from a high of 19 points (45-26) down to as few as 10 before losing by 12.

“We’ve put together three pretty good games (a 48-33 win over Lauralton Hall and a 61-56 loss to Law) the last three times out,” said Foran coach Bob Asmussen. “West Haven challenged us late with full-court pressure, but we held up.”
It was Foran’s second win this season over the Westies.
