The AP Poll champion in Division II bows out in their first tournament game, as the Lexington Minutemen stun Ontario 56-49 for the sectional title.

The top seed in the Bucyrus sectional bracket got off to a slow start, with Ontario shooting just 24% (5-21) from the field in the opening half, trailing the 3rd seeded Minutemen 23-14 at the break. Trent Richwine connected on back to back 3- pointers to end the first half for Lexington as he and sophomore guard Joey Zahn combined for 16 points while the Warriors managed just 5 as a team in the second quarter.

In the third stanza Ontario would come out of the gates quick, going on a 13-3 run to grab the lead late in the frame. But the Minutemen would take the lead right back with a run of their own, which they would hold until the final horn.

The Warriors kept Lexington's margin within a single possession for much of the fourth quarter, but the Minutemen would close out the game from the free throw stripe and cut down the nets with a 7-point victory.

Zahn finished with 22 points and 6 assists to pace Lexington's attack, while Richwine added 16 pts and 6 rebounds. The Warriors put three players in double- figures, led by Lenell Shelby's 13 and 10 each from Bradley Garverick and Cameron Mack.

Ontario wraps up the season at 21-2, losing their last two games after securing an NOL title and AP Poll championship in Division II.

Lexington (16- 8) advances to the District semifinals at Mansfield Sr where they will take on Sandusky Perkins (20-3) who dusted Sandusky 76-32 to win their sectional.
