Warriors Fall to Southwest
From Coach John Strand:
"The Warriors lost a tough one tonight against Southwest 50-47. Cord and Yordi both made some big free throws late in the game to tie it up at 47. With 2 seconds left Southwest got up a three and sunk it to win at the buzzer.
We started the game a little sluggish and let Southwest get up 9-0 and take a 15-3 lead after the first quarter. We came storming back in the second to get back within 1 going into half. In the third quarter, we came out and took the lead and we're up with about 3 minutes left. Turnovers proved to be costly as we turned it over 8 times in the fourth letting Southwest get back in the lead. We fought back and gave ourselves a chance for overtime, but we didn't catch a break and they hit their shot at the buzzer. Carson and Gentry both finished with 11 points to lead us.
Our next game is on Friday, February 1st at Brady. Hopefully we can get some momentum in February and finish the last few weeks of the season strong heading into Sub-distrcts."
