The Winters High School junior varsity girls basketball team had two games this last week. The two games were Sacramento Valley League games.

The Warriors hosted Live Oak High School on Tuesday’s game. Xiamara Guzman shot for 11 points, while Gianna Carrion and Shelby Boykin each made six points. Riley Schroeder had five points and Sierra Berry shot three. Rounding out the score was Emily Aguiar and Ruby Arizaga with two points. The game was a loss with a final score of 40-35.

“Against Live Oak we made some defensive adjustments after the first quarter and led going into the fourth quarter.

In that fourth quarter we just couldn’t make the baskets and ended up on the short end of the score,” stated Coach Tom Crisp. “That scoring drought carried over into the Pierce game. Our defense was okay but our offense lacked the movement necessary to generate scoring opportunities.”

On Wednesday the Warriors traveled to Pierce High School in Arbuckle to play the previous week’s postponed game.

The score of the game was 23-16 and was a loss for the Warriors. Schroeder was the score leader with five points, closely followed by Berry and Guzman with four points. The score was closed out by Carrion with three points.

The Warriors traveled to Willows High School on Tuesday, Jan. 29. On Friday the Warriors will travel to to Colusa High School. Both games are in the Sacramento Valley League.
