Wynot Blue Devils can’t stop Winnebago

WALTHLL — The Wynot Blue Devils led the entire game until the final three minutes when Winnebago’s Brandon Blackfish knocked down three long range bombs and led the Indians to a 46-41 upset win over the Blue Devils in the second round of the Lewis and Clark Conference Tournament Thursday night.
Wynot had come into the game as the number-one seed and the defending tournament champion,  but just could not put the Indians away and fell victim to the late-game heroics of Blackfish.

The Blue Devils had opportunities late in the game, as well, but were plagued by turnovers and missed freethrows that really hurt their chances.
Wynot was lead by Austin Wieseler and Chris Scmidt with 10 points each. Winnebago’s Brandon Blackfish took top scoring honors with 15 points and Greg Bass was right behind with 14 points to help the Indians offensive production.
Wynot got 5 points from Austin Wieseler and 3 points from Nathan Wieseler as they opened up a 14-9 first quarter lead.
Winnebago had 5 points by Greg Bass in the second quarter and hit 6 of 8 charity tosses in the second period. Wynot got three pointers by Chris Schmidt and Jackson Sudbeck as they fought to maintain the lead 26-19 at the half.
Greg Bass rallied the Indians in the third quarter with 7 points as Wynot stuggled on the offensive end and Winnebago cut the lead to 33-30 at the end of the period.
With the game on the line the Blue Devils looked tight on offense.They got 5 more points from Austin Wieseler but hit only 3 of 7 from the charity line and most were the front end of one and ones. Brandon Blackfish was the go to guy for the Indians. He drained a trio of three pointers and erupted for 12 points in the quarter to lead the Indians to the 46-41 win.
