At 6-2 and 2-0 in the North Central Conference, the Ontario boys basketball team will face two rivals this weekend in 4-3 Wynford in conference and 5-3 Lexington in non-league play.  On the 6-2 start, coach Joe Balogh is pleased with where his team stands saying the team has responded pretty well to what he called a tough schedule in terms of double weekends and travel, but says, as you would expect there is still much work to be done. 

The Warriors will try to get some of that work done this weekend beginning at Wynford on Friday.  The Royals will be looking to stop a two game skid after losses to Seneca East 56-44 and Col.Crawford 58-49.  As usual coach Balogh expects the best out of Wynford on their home floor, especially against Ontario.   The two teams split a season ago, each winning on their home floor.

Lexington will roll into town on Friday.  The Minutemen stand at 5-3 overall and are coming off a split last weekend with a loss to undefeated Norwalk 57-42, but then coming back strong the following night to beat Hillsdale 83-38.  It will be a homecoming of sorts for the two coaches.  Lexington head coach Scott Hamilton was in junior high school at Fort Loramie where coach Balogh began his teaching and coaching career back in the early 1980's.
