The Calhoun Warriors boys varsity basketball team played a neutral tournament game on Friday, Dec. 9, where they fell to the Greenfield Tigers.
The first quarter of the match up wasn’t favorable to the Warriors, who went down 16-8 in the first 12 minutes of playtime, yet, the game was still within reach. Heading into the second quarter down eight points, the Warriors attempted to take the lead from the Tigers, scoring 12 points in the quarter. The Tigers managed to rack up 10 points and retain their lead in the game. However, the score was a much tighter 26-20 heading into half-time.
The third quarter killed off whatever hopes of winning the Warriors had left heading into the first minutes of play, as the Tiger’s rallied for 20 points and held the Warriors to just 13. The fourth quarter saw little offense from the Warriors, who managed to put four points on the board, while the Tigers scored 12. The final score stood at 58-37 Tigers. Notable players for the Warriors were Chase Ralston with 16 points, and Conner Longnecker with 12 points. The Warriors had 13 fouls to the Tigers 16.
This loss puts the Warriors record at 1-4 on the year as of writing. The Warriors next game is against the Greenfield Tigers this Friday at an away conference game scheduled for 6:15 p.m. The Warriors played Winchester-Bluffs Cougars this Tuesday, but details were unavailable at press time.
