  • Mooseheart charges past Westminster Christian Feb 20, 2013 11:24 PM
    When Westminster Christian last played Mooseheart on February 9, the Warriors trailed by 9 points after three quarters but just couldn't make the necessary shots needed to clip the Red Ramblers. Wednesday night's regional semifinal on their home floor was like Groundhog Day for the Warriors, who found themselves down 7 entering the fourth quarter. The only queston that remained was: would it be different this time? Would No. 3 seed Westminster be able to drain some clutch shots late and upset No. 2-seeded Mooseheart? After Will Woodhouse's floater cut the deficit to 5 with 5:16 to go, the feeling in the gym was that the Warriors just might this time. Instead, on th ensuing possession, Mooseheart's Mangisto Deng stuck a dagger 3-pointer from deep in the right wing with 4:20 left to make it an 8-point game, which helped fuel a game-ending 15-5 run as Westminster stayed cold and Makur Puou's 2-handed tomahawk slam 2 minutes later sealed a 45-30 Red Rambler win.
