The Ontario Warriors extended their record to 7-0 with an 84-79 win over Clear Fork in overtime Saturday evening at the "O" rena. The Warriors with Brandon Wagner and Cameron Mack each scoring 22 on the night, seemed in control for most of the first half leading 19-10 after one and 40-32 at the break. But the Colts led by Ridge Winand who scored 31 and Kadin Chrastina who had 21, stormed ahead in third quarter outscoring the Warriors 21-11, to grab a 53-51 lead at the end of three. With less than a minute to play and the game tied at 65 all, the Colts Kadin Chrastina appeared to have hit the game winning shot with 3.3 seconds to play giving his team a two point lead and forcing Ontario to go the length of the floor to get off a shot. On the inbounds pass, Josh Plieninger threw the ball into the front court to Cameron Mack who put the ball on the floor, drove inside the circle on the left side and went up with a shot with the Colts Griffen Robinette defending. The ball went through the hoop as the horn sounded forcing overtime at 67 all. In the extra period, the Warriors outscored Clear Fork 17-12, earning most of their points at the foul line and giving them their seventh win in seven tries, while dropping Clear Fork to 2-3. In addition to Mack and Wagner's 22, Lenell Shelby had 15, Paul Homan 10 with Plieninger and Tyler Boatwright getting eight and seven points. Other than Chrastina's 21 and Winand's 31, the Colts got 11 from Griffen Robinette and eight from Sam Van Dyke. Both teams are back in conference play next week with Ontario at Shelby Friday and Clear Fork hosting Orrville.
