Coach Kyle Johnson calmed his group during the break and simply reminded them of their assignments. Seemed easy enough as Winamac started to put things together on both ends of the floor. A traditional three-point play by Fox at the 5:47 mark tied the game at 17-17. With their next trip down the floor it was Fox again, this time from behind the line to give the Warriors their first lead of the game at 20-19.
Woodlan regained the lead but it wouldn’t last long. Winamac had started to find holes in the zone Woodlan was playing and a 3-ball by Dotlich at the 2:34 mark gave Winamac the lead at 23-21, a lead they would never lose. Now playing with the lead Winamac turned up the pressure on defense and started to rattle Woodlan. With 1:01 to go before the half Winamac took possession and held for the last shot. A shot by Dotlich in the corner missed its mark but Winamac took a 26-21 lead into the break.
The third quarter belonged to Winamac all the way. Another traditional three-pointer by the Warriors at the 5:43 mark gave them their biggest lead at that point, 32-25. Moments later Colin McGee picked up his third foul and Johnson brought him to the bench. The Warriors continued on without missing a beat. Back-to-back baskets by Button at the 4:21 mark put Winamac up 38-27. Just over two minutes later another traditional three by Fox put the Warriors in front 41-30 as they go on to take a 45-35 lead into the final quarter.
Things got a little interesting in the fourth quarter. With Winamac maintaining its lead, Woodlan went to fouling and sending the Warriors to the line to earn their points. At time their free throw shooting was sketchy at best but the Warriors started hitting when they had to. By the 2:20 mark Woodlan had gotten to within 57-54. Winamac had built the lead back up to 70-57 with time winding down but a long desperation bomb by Woodlan’s Kadin Gerig just before the buzzer made it the 70-60 final.
