The Winters High School Junior Varsity girls basketball team hosted two games and traveled to one this week. These three games were against Colusa, Woodland Christian and Willows. The Warriors started the regular season and played two league games, ending the week with 3-7 overall and 0-2 in league. “We saw pressure defense from all three teams this week and at times we handled it well, but we just aren’t as consistent as we need to be,” said Coach Tom Crisp. “Teams played zone defense against us in all of our games up to this week and we struggled a bit, but on Friday started to get the offense initiated which created some open shots.” The Warriors started the week off on Tuesday, Jan. 8 when they played Colusa High School in a home non-conference game. The majority of the score for the game was from Gianna Carrion, with her 10 points. The rest of the score was from Emily Aguiar with four points, and Sierra Berry and Xiamara Guzman both with two points. Riley Schroeder was the only one to make a bucket for three. The game resulted in a loss. The final score was 43-21. In the second game the Warriors traveled to Woodland. There they played Woodland Christian in a non-conference game. The game was a loss with a final score of 53-20. Woodland Christian controlled both sides of the ball, and didn’t leave many openings for the Warriors to make shots. Carrion was again the score leader of game with 10 points. Schroeder, Autumn Mendoza and Lilian Wirth each had two points, while Berry, Aguiar, and Guzman contributed to the score with free throws.   At the end of the week the Warriors were back home for a Sacramento Valley League game. This game was against Willows, with a final score of 43-29. The majority of the score was shot by Carrion with 15 points. Guzman scored eight points. Shelby Boykin had four points and Berry, who was 100 percent on free throws for the game, had two points. On Friday, Jan. 18 the Warriors will travel to Pierce High School for a Sacramento Valley League game. ]]>
