Down Tigers on the road 44-41

After going winless in the Big 5 Conference last season, the Del Norte High girls varsity basketball team finally earned a league win Thursday night.

Playing on the road against Arcata the Warriors won 44-41 after withstanding a late Tigers rally to improve to 11-8 for the year and 1-2 in the Big 5.

Warriors come back for win against Eureka

Down by as much as 11, Del Norte earns huge victory in Big 5 opener

The Del Norte High Warriors boys varsity basketball team may have been down but they were far from out Wednesday night.

Trailing by as much as 11 points in the fourth quarter, the Warriors went on a tear in the final four minutes against the Eureka Loggers to pull off the 54-45 win in the squad’s Big 5 Conference opener.

“We battled in the fourth,” Warrior head coach Scott Alexander said, adding that while the team had its share of struggles they came together when it mattered the most.

“ I feel that all of a sudden we started to play defense and we started to make our shots” Alexander said. “Before you knew it we were back in the game.”

It was a true team effort that brought the Warriors back from the brink of a loss.

In the fourth quarter, down by 11 points with a little more than four minute remaining, junior Nick McBride drained a three-pointer, and a short time later senior Scottie Skeen nailed another three to reduce the lead to 41-36.

Soon another three-pointer by McBride got the lead down to 43-41. Later,  senior Zach Heglemeyer stole the ball and passed to Skeen, who made the bucket to tie the game up at 43 apiece with around 2:30 remaining in the contest.
