Ozaukee boys are perfect so far this year

Ozaukee Press correspondent

The Ozaukee High School boys’ basketball team had four players score in double digits on Monday night when they took on visiting St. Mary Central in a Big East Conference contest.

Brent Hoffmann’s 17 points led the Warriors to a 66-58 victory.

“It was a tough battle. They are really well coached,” Ozaukee coach Bob Domach said.

“They are one of the best offensive teams in the conference. We knew if we played great defense we would be in position to win at the end of the game. They threw multiple defenses at us and we adjusted well.”

The Warriors responded every time the Zephyrs put the pressure on.

“We answered their runs and never panicked,” Domach said.

The Warriors edged the Zephyrs, 32-31, in the first half before outscoring them by seven in the second.

Noah Miller scored 16 for Ozaukee. Ivan Garcia had 13 points and Mitch Weyker scored 11.

St. Mary Central got a game-high 23 points from Isaac Griffith. Logan Groebner chipped in 15 points and Caden Uhlenbrauck added 10.

Last Friday, the Warriors survived a slow start after Christmas break in a 51-37 non-conference home victory over Montello.

“We would have liked to have played better,” Domach said.

“We had too many mistakes, but that can be attributed to the long layoff for Christmas break.”

The Warriors got a huge game from  Miller. The sophomore scored 27 points and had five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

“Noah Miller shot really well. He was our spark at the beginning of the game and that carried throughout the game,” Domach said.

Other players chipped in as well.

“Mitch Weyker and Blake West  have helped us with the intangibles that don’t always show up in the box scores. They do the little things that make a big difference in the games. This game was a great example where their toughness helped us get the win,” Domach said.

Weyker finished with 10 rebounds and West pulled down seven.

The Warriors, now 3-3 in the Big East Conference and 5-4 overall, host league foe Sheboygan Lutheran on Thursday. On Tuesday, Jan. 15, they host Howards Grove.
