Vincent - Both Warren and Fort Frye conducted a clinic on defense and hustle.
At the end, though, the Warriors were one point better as they eked out a 26-25 triumph over the host Cadets in a prep girls basketball game Monday night.
“It was a close one,” said WHS head coach Amy Colgrove. “Fort Frye’s a great defensive team. and we knew it would be a struggle to score.
“Our girls were excited to play this game, and I think that might’ve caused some of our miscues. They battled and it was ugly. It was not pretty and it wasn’t any one thing. It was a good win.”
Abby Smith paced the Warriors (11-1) with a game-high 11 points.
Molly Grayson added six points, including what proved to be the game-winning triple.”
Fort Frye (9-2) was led by Hannah Archer’s nine points. Lexie Huck chipped in with seven while Riley Medley netted six. Kenzie Dalton grabbed a team-high eight rebounds.
“This was a tough loss,” said Fort boss Dan Liedtke. “There was no fault here whatsoever. We’re playing with seven players, and the effort was there.
“The ball wasn’t falling for us (8 of 33), and we had to grind everything out. But I thought we did a real nice job defensively.”
