Jacob Wimer Honored for Tiger Boys at Senior Night

Jacob Wimer was honored at Worth County’s senior night before the boys’ 65-42 victory over Northeast Nodaway. The Bluejays had played excellent basketball over the last week, picking up their 9th and 10th wins and doubling their win total from the prior two years combined. But they were no match for Worth County’s size or their outside shooting as both Cade Allee and Ryan McClellan were hot from outside, while Drake Kinsella got some points from inside and Mason Hawk was a presence on the boards.

Wimer started and knocked down a drive after Jacob New had kept a possession alive and followed it up with another 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. Northeast slowed Worth County down with a half court trap after the Tigers had started off fast, closing to within 8-6 after a Spencer Weir 3-pointer.
Both Spencer Weir and Dylan Mildfeldt did all they could to keep Northeast close, but Worth County slowly pulled away, getting some separation midway through the second; Ryan McClellan’s free throws, Drake Kinsella’s shot from the high post, and Cade Allee’s triple with Andrew Freemyer inside his jersey put the Tigers up 25-12 with 3:21 left in the second.

Northeast twice closed it to 10 in the third as Worth County had some shots go in and out, but Ryan McClellan carried the team on his back in the last two minutes sparking an 8-0 run as he aired one out to Tevin Cameron and added a steal that lead to a tally by Cade Allee. Worth County led 47-29 after three.

Cade Allee had 19, Ryan McClellan had 13, and Drake Kinsella 10 to lead the Tigers. Daniel Craven came off the bench to knock one down from the high post in the closing seconds.
