Boys’ Basketball: Youthtful W-MU Falls Late

By: Nathan Bloechl — 

Burlington — Notre Dame got 15 points from Josh Smith as the Nikes rallied from down one at halftime to sneak past Winfield-Mount Union, 57-46 in a Class 1A District 8 quarterfinal matchup.

Matt Johnson added 13 for the Nikes, while Jackson Brent had eight.

Winfield led 27-26 at recess before seeing Notre Dame outscore them 31-19 in the second half.

The freshman duo for the Wolves led the way — Abram Edwards had 20 points while Cam Buffington added 12.

Winfield, who’s future is undoubtedly very bright, ends their season 9-10.

Notre Dame, now 14-6, will take on New London Thursday night at Father Minnett Gymnasium in a game you can hear on FM 105.5 and
