Waterford’s Season Ends to Wellington< < Back to
With 30 seconds left and Waterford down three, the Wildcats demonstrate a full-court press. The only problem was the lone Jaguar at the other end of the court. The ball is thrown to him, and he catches it.
The only problem? Solomo Pierre-Louis walks.
However, the late game turnover would not be in Waterford’s favor as the Wellington Jaguars defeated the Wildcats 50-43.
The game stayed close the entire time with their being 12 lead changes throughout the game.
Neither team shot the ball well, shooting a combined 32% from the field.
What pushed the Jaguars past the Wildcats were the rebounds. Waterford finished with 25, while Wellington grabbed 44, with 21 coming on the offensive side.
Wellington’s Dallas Patrick was the leader for the Jaguars. The sophomore guard got a double-double with rebounds and points.
The loss for the Wildcats does mean it is officially the end of Waterford’s very successful year. The Wildcats will have a tough time filling in the roles of six seniors who all played a big part in Waterford’s season. The positive for Waterford is that eight juniors will all be ready to fill in the shoes.
Wellington will look to move one more step closer to the Schottenstein Center as they will play Portsmouth Clay, who defeated Grove City Christian 100-97 in double overtime.
