Fox leads Winamac past Woodlan in semifinal

NORTH JUDSON — Many folks in attendance for the first game of the Class 2A North Judson regional probably weren’t giving the Winamac Warriors much of a chance against Woodlan.

After all, Winamac didn’t look as athletic as Woodlan, they didn’t have nearly the size as Woodlan, the numbers weren’t in Winamac’s favor, even the Warriors won/loss record wasn’t as good.

But Winamac had something that Woodlan didn’t. Winamac had a junior having a career day and a group of guys that refused for their season to be over. They also had a bull-dogged determination to dominate the defensive end of the court.

With that in Winamac’s favor the Warriors advanced to the championship game of the Judson regional by turning away Woodlan 70-60 Saturday afternoon.

The hero of the day for Winamac was Parker Fox. Convinced that his team would move on, the junior led all players with 34 points in the contest. Dalton Button added 10 while Jeremy Bentle and Derek Dotlich each had 8 points each. Levi Schultz finished with seven.

“We played great as a team today,” Fox said. “Our defense really helped us along and that’s what helps to win games. The coaches had us prepared for this game. Some thought we were the underdogs of this tournament and didn’t give us a chance so we came in here and played our hearts out with nothing to lose and we got the win.”

Winamac won the opening tip and immediately things started going south for the Warriors as they turned the ball over on their first five possessions of the game. Their saving grace was their defense didn’t get off to the same start. Three minutes into the game Winamac was down 5-2 thanks to a very stubborn defense that wasn’t making things easy for Woodlan (18-7). Midway through the quarter the Warriors started to put things together on the offensive end and with 2:20 to play found themselves trailing 9-7. Winamac got to within one point before Woodlan took a 14-11 lead to end the first quarter.
