The Wahoo Warriors were defeated by the Seward Bluejays 61-51 on Saturday afternoon in Seward.

The Bluejays dominated the first half and went to the locker room with a 32-18 lead.  The Warriors got things going in the second half.  Wahoo was still down 38-28 with three minutes left in the third.  A Brendan Lacey trey, a Dylan Egr lay up, and a Billy Hancock trey cut the Seward lead to 40-36 after three quarters of play.

Back to back lay ups from Corby Brigham and Brendan Lacey tied the game up for the first time in the game at 40-40 early in the fourth quarter. A Brevin Sloup trey put Seward up 43-40.  Billy Hancock answered with a trey to tie the game back up at 43 with 5 minutes left to play.  The Bluejays scored on their next three possessions, while the Warriors missed treys on their next two possessions, to take a 49-43 lead,  with 3:30 left.  Two free throws and a lay up from Jake Ruzicka cut the lead back to 49-47 with 1:30 left.  Seward’s Sloup hit a driving lay up to make it 51-47.  The Warriors committed a turnover on their next possession and Seward then went 10-10 from the line down the stretch to seal the win.

Jake Ruzicka led the Warriors with 17 points and 11 boards.  Brendan Lacey added 11 points. Josh Abbott added 6 boards.  Wahoo was plagued by poor free throw shooting, 5-14, and poor 3 point shooting,  4-18.

The Warriors fall to 0-2, and will next host Wayne on Friday night.

“The first half was very disappointing.  It was good to see us battle and compete in the second half.  We gave ourselves a chance down the stretch, but we had just dug too large of a hole.  We will build on the effort we gave in the second half, and keep working to get better.” -- Coach Scheef
