ARLINGTON – Wayne Trace hit the road for the long trip to Arlington Tuesday evening in a non-league makeup boys basketball game where the Raiders returned with a 52-41 victory over the Red Devils.

Quarter number one saw very little scoring as Arlington struck in the opening minute with what would be its lone basket of the opening stanza.

Wayne Trace scored late for a 4-2 lead at the end of eight minutes of action.

The second stanza saw both teams pick up the scoring pace as the Raiders added 15 markers as did the Red Devils, putting the local squad on top 19-17 at the midway point of the contest.

Wayne Trace then opened the game up in the third period, scoring 19 points in the stanza while limiting Arlington to eight as the red, white and blue expanded the margin to 38-25 at the end of three periods.

In the final quarter of the night, Arlington did outscore Wayne Trace 16-14 but it wouldn’t be enough as the Raiders went on to post the 52-41 victory.

Kyle Stoller paced a trio of Raider players in twin digits with 15 markers on the night while Brooks Laukhuf added a dozen points and Tyler Davis chipped in ten.

Hudson Myers also aided the Wayne Trace cause with eight points followed by Tanner Laukhuf (five) and Brady Miller (two).

Caden Russell led the way for the Red Devils with 13 points in the contest and Brady Kin scored nine markers on a trio of three-point shots.

Also finding the scoring column for Arlington were Rylar Essinger (seven), Jake Vermillion (five), Brady Griggs (four) and Ayden Cavinee (three).

Wayne Trace hits the court on both Friday night and Saturday night this weekend to close out a busy week.

The Raiders, who improved to 11-4 with the win over the Red Devils, will host Edgerton (4-10, 1-3 GMC) in a Green Meadows Conference battle Friday night before visiting Kalida (11-4) Saturday evening.

Arlington, which is now 10-5 overall, also has a pair of contests on the weekend as the Red Devils visit Riverdale (2-12) in Blanchard Valley Conference play Friday night before traveling to Hardin Northern (4-11) on Saturday night.
