The Warriors made it three straight wins to open the season with a 71-41 beat down of Bucyrus Friday night at the O-Rena.

Ontario got off to a fast start with a big opening quarter, forcing the Redmen into a number of unforced errors and taking a 19-6 lead. But Bucyrus would battle back in the second stanza with some tough defensive pressure of their own to close the gap to 30-20 at the break.

The Warriors would put the game out of reach however, with a big surge early in the third quarter that continued into final eight minutes. Ontario would outscore Bucyrus in the second half 41-21 with 22 points coming in the fourth quarter, making it a 30-point victory for the Warriors in their NCC opener.

For the game Ontario out-shot the Redmen 59% to 33% and out-rebounded them 35-25.

Cameron Mack chalked up a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Warriors. Teammate Blake Balogh chipped in with 14 pts, Lenell Shelby 12.

Michael Purcell was the only player to post double-digit scoring for Bucyrus with 15 points. Austin Williams added 8, DJ Daher 6 and Brian Snouffer 5.

The 3-0 Warriors will next play Williard Saturday afternoon at 1 pm at Quicken Loans Arena. Bucyrus (3-1) will take the court next on Tuesday at Northmor.
