Not their week: Ozaukee boys get blown out by two league foes

Ozaukee Press correspondent

A week after scoring 97 points against a young and inexperienced Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah squad, the Ozaukee High School boys basketball team was brought back to earth with a pair of 30-point losses to two quality teams.

The Warriors dropped a 58-28 non-conference game at Campbellsport on Dec. 4.

Two days later, Ozaukee lost, 66-36, at Oostburg in a Big East Conference match-up.

Ozaukee’s floor general Brent Hoffmann missed both games due to a sprained ankle suffered in the Elkhart Lake game.

Ozaukee coach Bob Domach said the Warriors played better than the final deficit might suggest against the Flying Dutchmen.

“We executed our defensive plan well. We just didn’t shoot well, and we had too many turnovers. But I really do like how we are competing and improving,” he said.

“If we stay focused and stay together good things will happen.”

The Warriors were led by Jotham Higginbotham. He was the only Ozaukee player in double digits with 10 points.

Freshman Braxton Gahan led the Warriors with six rebounds. Noah Miller scored seven points.

The Dutchmen had four players in double digits, led by Derek Oonk with 17 points. Ashtin Smies scored 15, Cam Jaeger scored 11 and Logan Brock added 10 points.

At Campbellsport, the Warriors played better in the first half than the second.

“In the second half, we didn’t contest their shots as much as we want to, and they pulled away,” Domach said.

None of the Ozaukee players reached double digits in scoring. Ivan Garcia scored eight points. Miller tallied eight rebounds and six steals. Gahan pulled down eight rebounds.

The Warriors hosted Manitowoc Lutheran in a Big East game Tuesday.

On Friday, Ozaukee will travel to Reedsville for a league game.

On Dec. 19, the Warriors will host Milwaukee School of Languages in a non-conference game.
