The Warriors competed against the Williams High School yellow Jackets.  The Warriors played well as a team and hard but the game was a loss, the score was 38-35. Coach Jon Davis said, “Our energy was incredible. Guys were diving for loose balls and flying around on defense, but we had a little bit of the ‘first game’ jitters.” David Reyes lead all scorers with 18 points. Matt Moore and Kadin Pease each had four points, Jacob Barry followed them up with three points. Carson Lowrie, Yahir Sanchez and Tony Garcia closed out the scoring with two points each. “We turned the ball over a lot, which led to easy buckets for them,” said Coach Davis. The next day, Wednesday the Warriors headed to Pierce High School for a tournament in the town of Arbuckle. The Warriors played in three games during tournament. In the first they had a show down with Williams again, and won with a score of 47-29. “We had the benefit of playing them twice in two days.

Coach Jon Davis said, “We needed another ball handler and shooter to handle their press. They went up 18-4 early capitalizing on a half dozen turnovers. We had a bad shooting day and they didn’t. We really needed another shooter on the court.” He went on to say, “Still, I was really proud of how my guys fought back in the second half. We cut the lead to single digits and had some good chances to cut the lead even more, but the shots didn’t fall. That happens. It’s basketball.” On Friday the Warriors played in a game against Middletown and lost 47-33. Their stats weren’t recorded, and therefore not reported.   I’ll try to get these to you earlier in the future. Next week will be Sat night though because we play on Saturday.
