Comeback in road test at Ozaukee carries Port boys to first victory of the season
It was a tale of two halves and two perspectives when host Ozaukee took on Port Washington in a nonconference boys’ basketball game Monday night.
By rallying for a 64-56 win, Port walked off with its first victory of the season — an outcome that gave the Pirates relief and encouragement.
“It was a big win for us,” Port coach Brian Hebein said.
“We played with a lot more energy and focus in the second half, which was good to see.”
But for Ozaukee coach Bob Domach, the outcome was anything but positive.
“I was very disappointed in our play,” Domach said.
“We didn’t play to our potential. With that in mind, we still had our chances to win. We couldn’t capitalize, just like last week (in a loss to Hilbert).”
Ozaukee, which fell to 5-3 overall, overcame a slow start to take a 22-20 lead into halftime.
However, Port (1-4) stepped up its play in the second period and slowly took control.
