Warriors finish strong for win at Lewis Cass

Caston tops NM, LaCrosse for 2-0 start.

Lewis Cass was in a position to possibly beat Winamac for the first time in eight years in girls basketball Saturday night in Walton.

The Kings led by three points early in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors went on a decisive run to end the game.

Winamac pulled away for a 43-34 win to survive the scare at Cass.

“The turning point again for us, and it was the same thing in our last game, was the fullcourt pressure,” Winamac coach Jeff Wagner said. “I told the girls your defense won this game. We just didn’t do it soon enough and often enough because we didn’t do it consistently.

“I’m proud of the girls for sticking it out. We had a couple of people under the weather so it worked out pretty well.”

The Kings (1-1) took a 31-28 lead at the start of the fourth quarter on a 3-pointer by Maci Maupin. But the Warriors (2-0) ended the game with a 15-3 run. After Maupin’s 3-pointer, the Kings didn’t score again until a Bailey Gremelspacher 3-ball with 35 seconds left in the game, and Winamac led 42-34 at that point.

Stephanie Shorter scored seven of her game-high 23 points during the decisive run to end the game for the Warriors. At one point she blocked two shots in a row during the spurt.

Bethany Brogdon had three steals in a row and four steals overall in the fourth quarter for Winamac. Her steal and assist to Shorter gave the Warriors a 33-31 with 5:10 remaining, and she came up with another steal and assist to Ali Larkin 15 seconds later to make it 35-31.

Brogdon finished with eight steals, 10 assists and two points in the contest. Larkin scored eight points. Winamac outscored Cass 13-3 at the foul line for the game.

Freshman Olivia Collins led the Kings with 14 points. Maupin added 11 points, five rebounds, three steals and three assists.
