Heritage came into the game averaging 61 points per game, but the stingy defense of the Oilers held them to just six points in the first quarter. The Hawks picked things up in the second and trailed 24-20 at halftime. Heritage didn’t make a single three-pointer all night and could never put a sustained run together. 

Ostrowsky and Wojtusik took over in the fourth quarter to help seal the game for Mount Pleasant. They combined for 19 points in the quarter to extinguish a late Heritage push and seal the victory 60-47.

Up next: Heritage faces Carman-Ainsworth at home on Tuesday night and Mount Pleasant hosts St. Johns.
