It was a tough week of basketball for the Winters High School boys varsity team that ended with an emotional “Find a Cure Night” game. Winters started the week on the road traveling to Colfax on Wednesday, Jan. 3, for a non-league game and came home with a 77-41 loss to the Falcons.

On Thursday, Jan. 4, the Warriors hosted Woodland Christian in another non-conference contest and earned a 64-33 victory over the Cardinals. Winters started out strong from the tip off outscoring the Cardinals 24-11 in the first period. At the half the Warriors were up 39-18 and outscored the Cardinals in both the third and fourth periods for the win.

Winters’ last game of the week was on Saturday, Jan. 6, the date of Find a Cure Night. As they have for the last nine years the Warriors hosted Woodland High School for this event and you never know how it’s going to play out with all the emotions involved.

It was a hard-fought ball game that ended with the Wolves earning a 70-62 victory over the Warriors. Woodland slowly chipped away at the score taking a 16-12 lead at the end of the first, led 38-28 at the half and despite the Warriors outscoring the Wolves 34-32 in the second half it wasn’t enough for the win.

The JV team played the Wolves in the first game of the night and lost 48-22. No individual stats were available at press time for either team.
