It was senior night at Windsor High Thursday night as the Wasps from Woodstock traveled to take on the their host Yellowjackets.
With a 16 game Jacks winning streak on the line the table was set for an exciting night as the full house crowd anticipated the final game of the season for both teams because at their previous meeting a month and a half ago Woodstock had a 12-point third-quarter lead over Windsor only to lose 67-62.
Thursday night, both teams battled during the first quarter with the score at 18 to 18 after the first period.
Windsor went on a run in the second to put them up by six but then saw a swing in Woodstock’s favor which included a shot from Dylan McDonough that would have been good in an NBA game.
Not to be outdone in the waning seconds of the first half was Windsor’s Connor Gould, who tossed up a last second shot that banged off the glass and went in. In a game of runs though Woodstock led 34-33 at the half.
The Wasps went up 57-45 on a Hunter McDonough 3 early in the fourth. The Jacks rallied though to make it 59-57 with 2:18 to play. McDonough would miss a one-and-one attempt at 1:36 and Bradley looked like he would tie the contest from in close moments later, but a whistle ended his chance to put the ball in from underneath.
Windsor was unable to pull out a thrilling comeback due to Woodstock’s quick defense and some strong shooting. McDonough eventually finished up with five 3s on the night for 19 points.
Bradley topped Windsor with 18. YCN’s Jeremy Stout caught up with Woodstock Coach Jeff Thomas after the game for a few of his thoughts.
