Woodlawn moves past Webber

WOODLAWN — The Cardinals used a combination of intense defense and transition offense to beat Webber 61-15 in the Midland Trail Conference Tournament on Tuesday night.

“We wanted to get off to a good start,” Woodlawn coach Shane Witzel said. “We haven’t really played particularly well the last three games at the start of the game. We wanted to try to create some pressure.”

Woodlawn entered as the top seed, and the Trojans advanced to the game after an opening round win Monday night. The Cardinals forced the Trojans into 29 turnovers and held Webber scoreless in the third quarter on the way to a win.

Woodlawn’s Gabe Owens canned eight 3-pointers and tallied a game-high 27 points. Kris Harlow was also in double figures with 10 points. Ty Henderson led Webber with seven points and added 11 rebounds.

Woodlawn scored the opening 10 points of the game. Ty Coleman was able to pressure the Webber guards into several early turnovers resulting in breakaway buckets.

“They gave us fits,” Webber coach Chad Harper said. “They lock you down. You can’t run a set, and they’re strong. You try to make cuts. They make sure they bump you. It’s just tough for us offensively.”

In the second quarter, Gabe Owens carried the Cardinals’ offense. The senior hit five of his threes in the quarter and helped Woodlawn take a 38-10 lead into halftime.

“He’s had a rough stretch here for a few games here, but it’s just a matter of time before he has a game like that,” Witzel said. “And we did a good job of finding him and setting some good screens.”

Webber’s offense struggled against the Cardinals’ defense again in the third quarter missing all four of their attempts.

Woodlawn is 14-2 overall this season, and Webber is 6-12. Woodlawn plays the winner of the Odin-North Clay game at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night.
