The Southwestern Warriors remained perfect on the season on Friday night, but it certainly didn’t come easy.
Playing on the road at 48th District rival Wayne County, the Warriors were looking at a deficit of a Baker’s dozen headed into the fourth quarter of play, but thanks to a rally – a rally that saw Southwestern outscore the Cardinals 23-10 in the fourth quarter — Chris Baker’s club was able to come back from the dead and send the game into overtime.
And, the Warriors got the job done in those extra four minutes, to send the Cards down to a 69-64 defeat in a very hard-fought contest.
Cole Dysinger led the way for the Warriors, and once again the senior guard came up clutch at crunch time.
Dysinger scored 11 of his team-high 20 points in the fourth quarter and in overtime to lead the Warriors in scoring.
Braden Sims chipped in with 14 points in the victory for the Warriors, while Tanner McKee added 13 for Southwestern, who improved to 4-0 on the season with the win.
The Warriors will get back to action today on the road at 5:30 p.m. taking on Thomas Nelson High School.
