Warriors on Track at Meramec despite Slow Start, West Coasts into Semifinals


Joe Lyons St. Charles Post, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


It took awhile for the St. Charles West Warriors to get it going Wednesday night.

Playing in the quarterfinals of the 17th annual Holiday Festival Tournament at Meramec Community College, the top-seeded Warriors were outscored 8-2 by ninth-seeded Lafayette to open the game.

But West rallied quickly and ran away with a 72-48 victory.

"Lafayette's a well-coached team that played some real good defense early," West coach Terry Hollander said. "Sometimes those first few shots fall and sometimes they don't. We've been a team that starts fast in most games this season, but tonight Lafayette did a good job of protecting the basketball early in the game.

"But eventually, we got it going."

The Warriors (8-1) advanced to play fourth-seeded Webster Groves (7-2) in Thursday's semifinals. Third-seeded Mehlville (9-1) was set to play No. 7 DeSmet (6-3) in the other semifinal.

Webster is the defending champion at Meramec.

The tournament wraps up today with the consolation championship at 3 p.m., the fourth-place game at 4:30 p.m., the third-place game at 6 p.m. and the title game at 8 p.m.

"Regardless of what happens from here, we know we're going to have two tough ballgames," Hollander said. "I'm pleased with the way we've played so far and I think we're all looking forward to our next two games here."

In a game of streaks, the Warriors quickly overcame Lafayette's early advantage Wednesday. West scored the final seven points of the first quarter to go up 15-12 and then used a 10-0 run early in the second quarter to take command.

West, which led 30-22 at the half, put the game away with a 12-2 run at the start of the third quarter.

"We knew those first few minutes of the second half would be crucial and our players responded well," Hollander said. "I thought all our guys did a nice job again tonight."

The Warriors put together another big run midway through the second half, going up 63-32 when Ryan Robertson connected on a free throw with 7 1/2 minutes to play. …
