Vincent - Fort Frye had no answer for Warren post Jake Baumgard in Friday night’s Washington County rivalry rematch at Fort Frye High School.
Baumgard made all nine of his field goal attempts and led all scorers with 22 points as the Warriors gained a measure of revenge with a 65-49 win over the previously unbeaten Cadets.
More than three weeks after dropping a 49-46 decision to the Cadets on their home court, the Warriors completely dominated the battle of the boards to improve to 6-3 on the season.
Warren out-rebounded the Cadets 35-20 in the game and grabbed the first nine boards of the game.
Warrior head coach Blane Maddox felt that establishing the inside game early on would be a key in getting the win over the fast paced Cadets.
“I made a mistake the last game and got Jake (Baumgard) out of there too early. … Our main advantage is our size,” said Maddox. “The guys did a great job of getting him the ball and hitting the boards to do what we had to do on the road against a really good basketball team.”
Warren opened up a 17-13 lead at the end of the first quarter and extended that margin to 13 midway through the second quarter on a pair of Baumgard field goals.
