For the second straight Saturday, Ontario was able to pull a game out in overtime besting rival Lexington 56-49 to run their record to 9-0 on the season. The Warriors jumped out to a 15-4 first quarter lead holding Lex without a field goal in the first eight minutes. But in the second quarter, Lex turned the tables on Ontario holding them to three second period points and trailed by only four at the break 18-14. The Warriors pushed their lead to nine points after three at 33-24, but the Minutemen wouldn't go away. Led by Matt Barkett with 14 points and Joey Zahn with 10, Lexington was in a position to win the game when with 1.7 seconds remaining Lex's Joey Zahn was at the line after a foul shooting one and one with a chance to give his team the lead but he missed the front end, Cameron Mack grabbed the rebound and called time with .7 seconds remaining. Ontario's desparation shot was off the mark at the horn and regulation ended at 40-all. In the OT, like last week against Clear Fork, Ontario jumped out to a quick lead led by Lenell Shelby with 12, Cam Mack with 13 and Tyler Boatwright with with ten, Ontario was able to pull away in the extra period to remain unbeaten in nine games with the final being 56-49, Ontario. The loss drops Lexington to 4-4 on the season after knocking Mansfield Senior from the ranks of the unbeaten the night before in conference play.
