Winamac girls survive at Frontier

CHALMERS — Winamac’s girls basketball team recorded its third straight Midwest Conference win this week with a 40-35 victory at Frontier Friday night.

The Warriors (11-6, 5-1 MWC) travel to Caston tonight for their fourth league game of the week.

Taylor Brandt had 12 points and four rebounds, and Stephanie Shorter had 11 points and eight rebounds in Friday’s win.

Ali Larkin added seven points and matched that on the boards. Although Bethany Brogdon was held scoreless, she was able to dish seven assists to aid in the team’s win.

“We had a nice team win tonight against a stingy Frontier defense,” Winamac coach Jeff Wagner said. “Frontier tried to take our point guard [Brogdon]out of play by face-guarding, but she was able to be a decoy for her team allowing others to have success offensively. I was very happy with how the girls coming off the bench contributed.

“This was a great game to get us ready for what we might see in the sectional.”

Catie Neary led the Falcons (5-13, 1-6) with 24 points.

Winamac led 23-19 at halftime and 35-28 after three.

Tonight’s battle with Caston will likely determine second place in the conference standings.

“We will need to play in a similar fashion tomorrow night to be able to secure second in the conference,” Wagner said. “It will be the fourth game this week and the third in a row, so we will need contribution from many to get it done.”

The Winamac JV was able to continue its undefeated streak at 15-0 with a 32-16 win over Frontier.
