West Branch Falls in Shootout at Camanche

West Branch reached the 70-point mark for the first time in a conference game this season on Monday but it wasn’t quite enough to earn a win.

High-scoring Camanche survived a 38-point outburst by West Branch junior Beau Cornwell and edged the Bears 79-71 in a River Valley Conference cross-divisional matchup in Camanche.

The loss dropped West Branch to 3-5 on the season and 2-5 in RVC play while Camanche improved to 5-3 and 5-2 in RVC action.

The 38 points are a season-high for Cornwell who is now averaging 23.9 per game.
