Warriors Close Exhibition Season with Win

Warriors Close Exhibition Season with Win (with thanks to Martin Timmerman)

The Waterloo Warriors closed out their fall exhibition schedule with a 74-56 win over the visiting Fanshawe Falcons on Saturday afternoon at the PAC. It was a 32 point third quarter that broke open a close game and let Waterloo cruise to a win.

Fifth year senior Alan Goodhoofd had a career best 24 points in leading the Warriors in scoring. Alan added 12 rebounds to lead Waterloo to a rebounding advantage over the Falcons.

The first half saw both teams struggle on the offensive end, with Waterloo shooting just 34%, but Fanshawe even lower at 27%. Waterloo was up just two at the half 23-21. Coming out of the locker room at half time, the Warriors were more focused, taking care of the ball and hitting their shots instead of watching them rim out. In the second half, Waterloo hit for 56%, while Fanshawe continued to struggle with 30% shooting.

The Falcons had just two players in double figures, with Jesse Duguay hitting for 11 points and Jordan Dixon adding 10. For Waterloo, Brendan Smith added 13 points, while freshman Andrew Melbourne had his first double digit game, providing 12 points.

The Warriors open the OUA season on Friday, November 5 when they visit Kingston and the RMC Paladins. Game time is 8:00 pm.
