The Nowata Ironmen cruised to their eighth win of the season on Friday night. The outcome was never in question as Nowata topped Welch, 62-34.

Nowata had several players battling illness leading to a few regulars being held out of the lineup but it didn’t make much difference. Nowata got off to a great start in the first quarter storming out to a 19-6 lead.

Ty Bell beat the first quarter buzzer after a nice feed from freshman point guard Gabe Velasco.

Nowata would pour it on throughout the rest of the game. Zen Callahan was in fine form again and finished with a team-high 20 points. Ty Bell and Bryce Hewitt were also in double-figures.

The Ironmen led by 26 going in to the final quarter and coach Gary Hollingshead was able to get some in the game. Mark Price added two three-pointers off the bench in the final quarter.

The Ironmen move to 8-3 on the season. Nowata has a quick turnaround as they play Oklahoma Union on Saturday.
