Ontario rolled at home over Bucyrus on opening night, smacking the Redmen 87-44.

The Warriors forced 16 first half turnovers with their frenetic full-court zone pressure, running out to a huge 53-22 lead. Ontario also played well on the offensive end with Lenell Shelby, Cameron Mack and Brandon Wagner all posting at least 13 points in the first two quarters.

In the second half the Warriors sat back in a half-court zone defense and unloaded their bench, cruising to 33- point victory in their home opener.

Ontario finished 24-49 from the field (49%), while Bucyrus connected on just 14-44 (32%) shot attempts. The Warriors also won the rebounding battle 28-19 and owned the turnover margin 19-8.

Mack finished with a game-high 22 points to go along with 4 rebounds. Shelby added 20 pts and 5 assists, Wagner had 16. Bucyrus put two players in double-figures with Brian Snouffer dropping 12 and Greg Patrick chipping in with 10.

Ontario will play at Upper Sandusky on Saturday, Bucyrus will host Northmor.
