12/5/19 At Wahoo
The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Bennington Badgers 76-59 in the season opener at home on Thursday night.
The game was close throughout the first quarter and the Warriors led 18-14 after one.
The game was still close midway through the second quarter. Wahoo was up 25-23, when they went on a 9-0 run. A three point play from Trey Scheef, a Gerardo Madrid layup followed by back to back buckets from Thomas Waido pushed the lead to 34-23. The half ended with Wahoo up 36-26.
An 8-0 run to open the third quarter busted the game open. A Trevor Kasischke lay up, a Trey Scheef trey, and a Braden Harris trey, made it 44-26. A Trey Scheef trey at the end of the third quarter gave Wahoo it’s largest lead at 61-39. The Badgers would not mount a serious threat in the fourth quarter, and Wahoo went on to the 76-59 win.
“That was a great way to start the season. Bennington always has a tough team, and with the limited practice time due to State football, I thought we played really well. We played hard, and competed throughout. Our decision making has to get better, but overall it was a good first game.” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.
Trey Scheef led the Warriors with 27 points on 10-19 shooting from the floor. Thomas Waido added 18 on 6-10 from the floor, and 6-7 from the line, to go with 8 boards. Braden Harris added 10 points. Trevor Kasischke added 8 points. Triston Keeney was a stat stuffer with 6 points, 10 boards, 5 steals and 5 assists.
The Warriors outrebounded the Badgers 36-25, and forced 25 Bennington turnovers.
The Warriors travel to Aurora on Friday night to take on the Huskies.
