The last two unbeatens in league play in the North Central Conference played a thriller in North Robinson Saturday night, with Ontario coming away a leg up on Colonel Crawford in the conference with a 67-62 win.

It was a tight game throughout the first half with the Eagles leading 18-15 after the first, then the Warriors holding a 31-30 advantage at the break. Ontario maintained their one-point lead heading into the final quarter after the teams played to a 14-14 draw in the third, but the Warriors would take control in the early minutes of the fourth.

A run by Ontario would extend the Warriors lead out to double figures with under two minutes to play in the ball game, but missed free throws and a four-point-play by Colonel Crawford's Connor McCreary would open the door for the Eagles. The lead would somehow melt down to a single posession game on multiple occassions down the stretch, but Ontario made clutch defensive stops and hit just enough free throws to secure the victory.

The Warriors out-shot Colonel Crawford 24-41 to 20-45, and dominated the glass with a 31-14 advantage.

McCreary led all scorers with 25 points, while teammate Austin Adams added 14 and Nate Klingenberger chipped in with 10.

Cameron Mack had a big night in his return after a two-game suspension, leading the Warriors with 22 points and 7 rebounds. Tyler Boatwright scored 16 points before fouling out and Wyatt Clemens followed up his career-high scoring night last Saturday with 10.

Ontario is now 9-3 overall and remains unblemished in the conference at 5-0. They will play three games next week, beginning out of league at Clear Fork. Colonel Crawford drops to 11-2, 5-1 in the NCC and will next host Buckeye Central on Friday.
