Unbeaten Ontario ended Willard's 3-game win streak with a 51-36 win over the Flashes on Thursday night.

The game was the first live action for the Warriors in nearly two weeks, while Willard came in hot as winners in 9 of their last 11. However, it would be the hot hand of Ontario's Cameron Mack that would propel the Warriors to a 17-9 advantage after the opening quarter.

Mack had a dozen in the frame, but in the second quarter Willard would inch to within 24-17 at the break behind 10 first half points from Carson Ebert. The Warriors defensive pressure would then give the Flashes fits in the third quarter, as Ontario forced 8 Willard turnovers in the stanza to increase the margin out to 37- 26.

The Warriors would close the door on any Flashes comeback with a fast start to the final quarter, chalking up a 15-point victory and win number 14.

Mack finished with a game-high 24 points to go along with 10 rebounds and 4 blocked shots. Tyler Boatwright added a dozen to pace the Warriors attack.

Ebert would be the only Flash to post double-figures with a team-high 19.

Ontario shot just 37% (15-40) from the floor, but their smothering defense would hold Willard to just 32% on 13-41 shooting.

The Warriors also won the rebounding battle 29- 18 and owned a 17-13 advantage in the turnovers.

The 14-0 (6-0) Warriors will next travel to Sandusky for a Saturday date with 3-10 (2-4) Sandusky in NOL play. Willard (10-5, 3-4) will play at conference foe Bellevue (3-8, 1-4) on Saturday night.
