Winamac boys fall in season opener at Rochester

ROCHESTER — The Winamac Warriors opened their season on the road when they traveled to Rochester to take on the host Zebras in boys basketball.

Unfortunately for the Warrior faithful that made the trip, the outcome wasn’t they were hoping for, nor was it for coach Kyle Johnson, as the Warriors fell 53-34 to the Zebras.

Winamac displayed a lot of movement on both ends of the floor to start the game. Play was at a fairly fast pace early and Winamac was plagued with turnovers and foul troubles. The Warriors were also missing open shots that typically have fallen and that remained with them throughout the game. At the end of opening frame it was a 9-5 Rochester lead.

While Rochester (1-2) continued to lead and Winamac continued having troubles scoring, the Warrior defense made scoring difficult for the Zebras and basically kept Winamac in the game. By halftime Rochester had opened up a 19-11 lead.

Shooting and scoring woes continued for the Warriors after the break. To add to their misery, Rochester started playing at a faster pace and the Warriors had difficulty adjusting and the Zebras began to pull away. The lead grew to 15 points near the end of the quarter and the lead held at the end of three, 38-23.

The final quarter was much the same for Winamac as it had been all game: troubles scoring, fouling and turnovers. At the 2:10 mark Rochester was able to extend the lead to 20 off a pair of free throws from Carter Screeton. Winamac’s last point came on a Parker Fox free throw to make it the 53-34 final. Rochester sat on the ball for the final 1:24 and did not make an attempt to score.

“We obviously still have a lot of work to do,” Johnson said. “I thought for the most part the effort was OK. The bottom line is we just didn’t play well. We’ve got to get in more repetitions and that happens with more practice. Rochester brought it to us instead of us taking it to them.”
