Warriors stay perfectin MWC play

WOLCOTT — Winamac’s boys basketball team held on for a 47-46 win at Tri-County Wednesday to remain unbeaten in Midwest Conference play.

It was the Warriors’ second league win on the road in as many nights. They improved to 5-0 in the conference and 9-7 overall.

The Warriors have had improved shooting in the second half of the season and that continued Wednesday, as they shot 9 of 16 from 3-point range (56 percent). Adam Gruenig made 4 of 6, J.T. Garnett made 3 of 5 and Parker Fox made 2 of 3.

Gruenig finished with 12 points, Garnett and Fox had nine apiece and Jeremy Bentle added seven. Dalton Button and Derek Dotlich chipped in four apiece.

Zack Patton led the Cavaliers (10-6, 3-2 MWC) with 25 points. Eli Legler and Dane Hardebeck had six apiece and Kyle Miller added five.

Winamac led 27-23 at halftime and 40-36 after three quarters.

Winamac led by five in the closing minute before a Tri-County basket cut the lead to 47-44.

The Warriors then fouled Patton while he was attempting a 3-pointer with just 4 seconds left. Patton missed the first but made the next two to cut the lead to one.

Tri-County had committed just three team fouls though in the second half and Winamac was able to run out the rest of the clock.

“It’s tough to pull out two road victories in two consecutive nights,” Winamac coach Kyle Johnson said. “That’s a testament to the kids. They’ve fought through adversity.”

Winamac travels to Pioneer on Friday before hosting Caston next Tuesday to close out its MWC slate.
