PLEASANT VIEW —Dawson Yoes scored 24 points as Sycamore beat White House-Heritage 74-58 on Friday in a Homecoming game.
Daniel Saylor (13 points), Bailey Chapman (11) and Trevor Gagnon (11) all scored in double figures for the War Eagles.
“They played hard the entire game,” Sycamore coach Toby Miles said. “I was really proud of our defense, and our offense worked well tonight. Everyone was in sync and that certainly helps.”
Sycamore led White House-Heritage 21-7 after the first quarter. The Patriots fought back and even cut Sycamore’s lead to nine points, but every time they got close the War Eagles would get on a hot streak.
“Anytime we start hitting shots, it makes the guys really want to play defense,” Miles said. “They played awesome defense and obviously that’s something I love. It’s like that with every high school kid, once they start hitting shots; it makes them play a little harder. But that’s one thing I want our kids to understand, we have to play hard even when the shots aren’t falling.”

Emily Fisher led all of the Lady War Eagles with 12 points.
