#2 Upper Sandusky vs #1 Willard
D3 Norwalk District Championship
Willard Dominates Upper Sandusky For District Crown
In Willard’s first trip to the District Championship since they beat Upper Sandusky for the title in 2006, the Flashes repeated history with a 60-36 victory over the Rams to claim the Division III Norwalk title.
Upper Sandusky (19-6) blitzed Willard 83-59 in their regular season opener back in November, so a motivated Flashes squad took control from the jump, leading wire to wire. Willard held a 20-15 advantage after the first, extending their lead to 30-19 by the break.
Upper Sandusky put together a late run in the third quarter after falling behind by 13 to close within 40-29 heading into the final eight minutes where Flashes senior forward Davon Triplett took over the game. The Willard big man scored six field goals in the frame, finishing with a game-high 20 points and 9 rebounds, as the Flashes scored the last 11 points of the contest to secure the win.
Willard (22-3) will next face Coldwater (17-9) in the Regional Semifinals at Bowling Green.
