Depperschmidt, role players come up big in Lexington's win over OntarioONTARIO — Lexington senior Alex Depperschmidt scored just seven points through his team's first 10 games. But on Tuesday night, Depperschmidt scored more points in his team's 62-52 win over Ontario than he did the entire season up to that point. After taking a narrow 26-22 lead into halftime, Lexington outscored Ontario 20-12 in the third as they closed the quarter on an 11-2 run. Hamilton also knows how important it is to get his bench guys going as the Minutemen continue to develop depth. "If we get out of Ontario with a win, that is all I care about," Hamilton said.
