Heidkamp has found it difficult to pair his two posts together at the same time, but he has confidence when he calls Ferrell's number.
Jake Ronneberg, too, gave Benet (23-4, 8-1 East Suburban Catholic) a lift off the bench Friday.
"We know Noah is capable of coming in and giving us big minutes," Heidkamp said. "He was the spark we needed tonight. We have some depth, and both Jake and Noah gave us big minutes."
Benet needed it, because it was a grind all night.
The Redwings shot 1-for-9 in the first quarter, trailed 7-3 after a quarter and 20-16 at half. Benet didn't take its first lead until Engels' three-point play to start the fourth quarter.
