The Warriors improved to 13-2 in the CLC (17-4 overall) and remained one game behind first-place Howards Grove. The Tigers clinched at least a share of the championship with a 74-39 romp over Random Lake which upped their league record to 14-1.

Ozaukee hosts the Tigers Thursday night. If Howards wins, it wraps up the outright CLC title. A win by the Warriors would make them co- champions along with HGHS.

The Warriors blew the game open by outscoring Elkhart 24-6 in the second quarter to build a 34-10 halftime lead. Senior guard Owen Miller and junior forward Mike Richter sparked Ozaukee’s attack in the period with eight and seven points, respectively.

Elkhart shot only 15 percent (7 of 46) from the field and was hurt by 22 turnovers. The Warriors dominated the boards with a 39-21 rebounding edge.

Richter scored a game-high 18 points, including 13 in the first half. Miller added 12, with 10 coming in the opening half. Ten of the 12 Warriors scored.

Trevor Taubenheim paced the Resorters in scoring with eight. Hunter Schoenborn led Elkhart in rebounds with five.

“I thought we played hard and the kids executed our game plan on both ends early in the game very nicely. In fact, we held them to 10 points in the first quarter and trailed just 14-10 early in the second,” said Resorter head coach Ray Mlada.

“The problem is, this is a 32- minute game and not 12. They switched to a 1-2-2 half-court zone that caused us a lot of trouble and inexcusably lost contain a few times and the next thing you know their on a 10-0 run and for all intents and purposes that was the ball game.

“I thought Hunter Schoenborn [[senior post player] played his best game of the year and Noah Ruh [freshman guard] did a nice job of running the point but other than that we played poorly the final 20 min- utes.”

The Resorters fell to 0-15 in the CLC (2-19 overall).

JUNIOR VARSITY GAME

In JV play, Ozaukee rolled past the Resorters, 66-34.
