WISCONSIN DELLS — The Westfield Pioneers came to Wisconsin Dells High School with hopes of upsetting the undefeated Chiefs, but instead headed home as their latest victim.

Wisconsin Dells asserted its dominance with a 17-0 run early on, then used a strong start to the second half to put the game well out of reach on its way to an 89-50 victory in a South Central Conference game Friday night.

Wisconsin Dells (11-0, 5-0 South Central) was led by senior Alex Weiss, who had 14 points, and senior Tanner Brandt, who finished with 12 points, but it was hardly a two-man show. Fellow senior Jackson Sveum finished with 10 points, as did sophomore Brett Hirst. The Chiefs, who finished with 36 field goals, got contributions from just about everyone on the offensive end, as 11 players scored.

Westfield (6-6, 2-3) was actually the team that started fast. The Pioneers took a quick 5-0 lead on a jumper by sophomore Derek Drew and a 3-pointer by senior Nick Brakebush, but the momentum soon switched over to the Chiefs.

Wisconsin Dells finally got on the board with a 3-pointer by Brandt, which was followed by a 3-pointer from Sveum, starting a spurt of 17 straight points for the Chiefs. The run also included a 3-pointer from Weiss — one of 12 made 3-pointers for Wisconsin Dells on the night — making it 11-5 and forcing Westfield to burn a timeout with 14:52 left in the first half.

The points kept coming for Wisconsin Dells, which led 17-5 on a fast-break layup by Weiss with 13:00 to play in the half. The run finally ended when Brakebush, who led the Pioneers with 16 points, scored on a runner to make it 17-7 at the 12:45 mark.

The Pioneers trailed by as many as 15 in the first half, but also got to within nine when sophomore Kaden Roberts hit a 3-pointer and Brakebush scored on a layup to make it 32-23 with 5:30 remaining. Despite the mini run by Westfield, the Chiefs still took the momentum into the locker room as junior Dylan Anchor drilled a 3-pointer with 7 seconds left to give Wisconsin Dells a 39-25 lead heading into the break.

Westfield never got any closer the rest of the way, as Wisconsin Dells opened the second half with a 3-pointer from Brandt, and then got back-to-back buckets from Hirst and Weiss, all in the opening minute of the first half to go up 46-27.

The Wisconsin Dells lead hit 30 points when a layup by Anchor capped a 9-0 run to make it 67-37 with 8:50 to play. That allowed the Chiefs to rest most of their starters with a big game against North Scott (Iowa), a team that is 9-1 and ranked eighth in Iowa’s largest division, on Saturday at JustAgame Fieldhouse in Wisconsin Dells.

The loss for Westfield comes just as it begins a difficult stretch of its schedule, as six of its next seven games are on the road, including at Mauston next Friday night.
