Westview ends Winamac's season in regional final

NORTH JUDSON — The Winamac Warriors’ championship run came to an end Saturday night at the Class 2A North Judson Regional.

Winamac ran into a strong Westview team in the regional title game and couldn’t seem to find the magic that led to a win over Woodlan in the morning semifinal.

Westview ended Winamac’s season with a 69-53 win to claim its first regional title since 2008.

Westview (22-4) will face No. 7 Lewis Cass next Saturday in the northern semistate game. Winamac finishes 15-9.

The Warriors have to settle for a season that included winning Midwest Conference and sectional championships and finishing as a regional finalist. They won their first sectional title since 2002 and first regional game since 1997.

“They just battled. To make it to the regional championship, it’s hard to celebrate right now but they had a heck of a year and the future looks bright,” Winamac coach Kyle Johnson said.

Winamac got off to a good start against Westview in building an 8-0 lead over the first four minutes of the contest.

“We got off to that lead and obviously that just said that we belonged. We were right where we needed to be,” Johnson said.

Westview started chipping away at the lead and tied the game at 11-all after one quarter.

Westview continued its efficient play in the second quarter and build up a 29-20 at halftime.

It was more of the same for Westview in the third quarter. Even when 6-foot-3 senior Judah Zickafoose went to the bench with his fourth foul with 4:59 left in the third, Westview kept building its lead and led 45-31 entering the fourth.

“They had quite a few threats,” Johnson said. “We were blessed that we got them in foul trouble as well which took some of that away, but their threats were very patient. Their 3-point shooters would wait, they didn’t want to just keep chucking it up, they would wait until they got a good look and when they did they would capitalize. We weren’t able to capitalize in the same areas.”
