Ontario knocks off the surging Bucks to stay perfect in league play, with a 52-37 victory Saturday at the O-rena.

The Warriors came out hot, scoring 19 first quarter points to take a 9-point lead into the second quarter, and would hold a 29-19 advantage at the break. Ontario would score just 5 points in the third quarter however, allowing Buckeye Central to close the gap to 34-26 as the game entered the final stanza.

The Bucks would close the gap to 5 early in the fourth quarter and seemed to have all the momentum on their side, but the Warriors would close the game on a 18-8 run to secure a 15-point win.

Buckeye Central's Austin Wurm entered the game leading the NCC in scoring with 16 ppg, but was held to just 2 points on the night. Cade Kaple finished with 15 to lead the Bucks.

The win marks the third straight for Ontario, who improve to 12-4 overall, 8-0 in the NCC. The Bucks were riding a 5-game winning streak and would have taken a half game lead in the conference with a win, but fall to 9-7, 7-2 in the league with the loss.

 Ontario will next host 3-11 Crestline on Friday, Buckeye Central travels to 3-10 Riverdale.
