Westminster Boys bring home the Gold!
WCA completed the Washington Tournament with a bang on Saturday night winning the championship for the first time in school history! After coming so close in last year’s tournament and then being deprived of the honor at the MICDS holiday tourney, the Cats came out ready to play and win in both the semi-final and final games. The semi-final match-up between WCA and St. Charles on Friday night made everyone believers again. Buoyed by the fans, cheerleaders and Blue Crew, the team was on a mission to show everyone that they were the real deal. The first half play was magical with well coordinated plays, movement, and execution. The Cats were nearly flawless and showcased the depth of their talents. They came out on fire, scoring an unheard of 30 points in the first quarter. The Pirates (whose coach had broadcast their intent to beat the Cats) didn’t know what hit them. Jack Dohr confident from outside and in contributed 10 points in the first quarter. Connor Fleming, driving to the basket and adding a 3 pointer, scored 9 points. John Eric Steiner added 2 buckets, one as the result of a steal from an aptly set trap by teammates Norman and Dohr. Cole Norman was aggressive on defense and kept the Pirate’s 3 point shooters at bay. John Barry (2 points) and Grant Koby added their own defensive pressure. Rookie Brendan Bognar put up 2 and on a last second pass from Fleming ended the first quarter with an all-star three pointer. At the end of the first quarter, the Cats led 30-13 and the rest, as they say was history. The Pirates stayed with the Cats for the next 3 quarters but the damage was done and no one was going to deny WCA a return trip to the final. In the end, the Cats won 78-64 and put to rest any St. Charles illusion about advancing in this tournament. Game Ball to the entire Wildcat team for being confident, taking the game into their own hands, and making it happen. Individual recognition for outstanding scoring to Jack Dohr with 22 points: for exceptional playmaking and drives to Connor Fleming with 16 points, 7 assists, and 3 steals; for aggressive defense to Cole Norman with 8 points, 3 assists and 2 steals, for consistent play to John Eric Steiner with 12 points , 3 assists and 4 rebounds, to John Barry with 4 points, and special rookie recognition to Brendan Bognar with 5 points, Collin Einertson and Brennan Hehner with 2 points, Eric Witherspoon with 1 point, and Chad Younger and Tim Burgess with offensive and defensive rebounds respectively. It was a true team win and set the stage for Saturday night’s match-up. If you stayed after the WCA-St. Charles game on Friday night, you witnessed the intensity of the local team match-up between Borgia and Washington. The stands were completely filled and everyone was ready for a battle. After keeping it close the first quarter, the Washington Blue Jays could not hold off the Borgia Knights as they galloped to a 62-32 victory. After seeing the fan turnout for this game, the Cats knew it was necessary to call in reinforcements for the championship match. They called and the Blue Crew answered. It was a Westminster Black out replete with fans, parents, alumni and well-wishers. You can never underestimate the power of having your fans in your backcourt when you face an indomitable foe like Borgia. They are a well-coached, perennial powerhouse that you can never underestimate. Star Borgia Guard Bryce Dolan averages 18 points a game and with big man Jacob Martin parked underneath the boards and scoring almost 13 a game himself, it did not appear that Borgia would be defeated easily. Maybe it was the fans or the second chance to bring home the big trophy, or maybe even a quiet resolve that they deserved to be here, but whatever clicked for the Wildcats on Saturday night was unstoppable. The Cats started out strong with 2 from Fleming, a 3 pointer from Steiner and a basket by Koby to take an early 7-0 lead. The fans wondered could it be this easy. But the Knights worked their way back in and at the end of the first quarter the Cats had a slim 16-15 lead. The second quarter was a whole other story as the Wildcats went off on the Knights. With great passing/assists from Fleming, and continuous outside bombs from numerous Cats, Borgia was stunned as WCA outscored them by more than 20 points. Brennan Hehner stepped up and provided much of the momentum as he launched 3 three pointers in the second quarter, while John Eric Steiner contributed 2 long balls himself. Someone should have yelled “incoming” because it was a barrage of firepower from beyond the arc. Borgia didn’t know what hit them. Cole Norman and Grant Koby were outstanding on defense, shutting down Dolan and keeping Martin off balance. At the half, Westminster had a commanding 38-21 lead leaving the Borgia fans in a stupor. The Cats showed no mercy in the 3rd and 4th quarters as they ran their lead out to as much as 24 points. Jack Dohr steadily added points from under the basket and at the free throw line. Dohr, Steiner and Koby fought aggressively for the rebounds throughout. With 4 minutes left in the game, WCA led 62-46 and the Cats could almost taste certain victory. Yes, the Cats went on to win the Washington Championship and a big gold basketball for the trophy case. Final Score WCA 68-Borgia 52. Needless to say this game got considerable press as unranked WCA soundly beat # 4 small school Borgia. Earl Austin Jr. tweeted about it. STL today wrote about it, and Borgia Knight Coach Neier spoke about it on the air. This was the real deal Cat fans and a big factor in the Cats being ranked number 9 in small schools in the Monday morning polls. (WCA breaks the top 10!). The game ball goes to 3 different people/groups: 1. To all the coaches past and present that got the boys to this level, 2. To all our 3 pt. shooters, Hehner, Steiner, Dohr and Fleming, but especially youngster Brennan Hehner who stepped up and made the big shots; and last but not least to the diehard Wildcat Fans. There is no way this team would have performed like this without their support. The Black Out was amazing and showed how fast this community could come together to support their own. Blue Crew we love you! Congratulations also to Jack Dohr and Connor Fleming for being named to the All-Tournament Team. The future is bright for WCA basketball, both this season and to come. Remember... as you believe...you become. Join us next game, Wednesday, 1/18 at 6:45pm when the Cats take on the Dubourg Cavaliers on the road. Also, Blue Crew we need you Friday night as WCA travels to MICDS to take on the Rams at 7 pm. Imagine another big rivalry High School basketball game on a Friday Night in front of a packed crowd. Does it get much better than this???
