It's been a satisfying start for the Ontario Warriors in the program's inaugural season in the Northern Ohio League. The team has ripped off 11- straight wins to open the 2013-'14 campaign, becoming the prize of future opponents who want to hand Ontario their first loss.

The next school with a shot at knocking the Warriors from the ranks of the unbeaten are bitter rival Wynford. The team's have a long history with one another as former conference opponents in the NCC and with the struggling Royals at just 3-7 on the season, will be looking to turn around the season with a huge win over the Warriors.

Ontario senior forward's Josh Plieninger and Brandon Wagner each say they welcome the added pressure of being undefeated and recognize the intensity of the Wynford rivalry. The two veterans are part of a seasoned squad that has made Warriors head coach Joe Balogh's job much easier this season.

Balogh says his experienced leaders "have been able to gain some trust" on the hardwood throughout the first half of the season. Coach credits the decision making of his veterans in key spots during their campaign, as the catalyst for their success.

The Warriors and Royals will tip-off Thursday night at the O-Rena around 7:45 p.m. The game can be seen in it's entirety Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. on WOHZ TV and in HD on WMFD Sunday at 3 p.m.
