WINAMAC — Triton’s boys basketball team fell behind early on the road at Winamac, and the Trojans couldn’t make it two in a row in the Hoosier North Athletic Conference, falling 52-42 to the host Warriors Friday night.
Triton (2-4, 1-1 HNAC) fell behind 15-5 in the first quarter and trailed 34-17 at halftime as Winamac (4-2, 2-1 HNAC) knocked down 13 of 21 (62.9 percent) of its shots before the break. The Warriors were limited to 4-of-13 (30.8 percent) shooting as the Trojans outscored them 25-18 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to make up the difference.
Ross Johnson scored 11 points, and Dylan Hensley finished with 10 for Triton, which scored 24 points in the paint in Winamac. The Trojans also had seven players make the scoresheet but couldn’t get quite enough production against a Warrior squad that hit 10 of 17 3-point shots, including 7 of 10 over the first two frames.
Calvin and Will Larkin scored 15 points apiece to lead Winamac.
Triton also came up short in the JV game, 44-38. Kaden Atkins finished with 14 points and four steals to pace the junior varsity Trojans. Austin Creasy notched 11 for the Warriors.
Triton now takes a week off before hosting South Bend Trinity next Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
