CRESCENT CITY — In a down and dirty defensive battle that got quite ugly on the offensive end, the Del Norte Warriors fell short against conference rival Eureka 36-31 in the team’s Big 5 Conference opener Tuesday night.

Both squads hammered each other on the defensive end, giving one another very little opportunity to score, with both teams missing shot after shot.

While down by as much as nine points in the second half, the Warriors, the defending conference champ, came back and knotted things up late in the game. But missed free throws in the second half proved to haunt the Warriors in the closing seconds.

“When you go 9-for-18 from the free throw line in the second half you’re not going to win many games,” Warrior head coach Scott Alexander said. He added that the Loggers tenacious zone defense made it quite a challenge to get inside shots. And with the outside shot not going in Tuesday night for the Warriors, the need to make free throw shots became that much greater, he said.

The Big 5 Conference is certainly up for grabs this season.

With the squads all fairly evenly matched, Del Norte High boys varsity basketball coach Scott Alexander said there is no such thing as an easy game during the conference season, which begins for the Warriors tonight against Eureka at home.

“It’s a pretty level playing field,” he said. “We need to play at a high level every night and we need to be focused.”

Alexander, in his first year as head coach of the Warriors, which are 6-4 overall, said keys  for the team during Big 5 play  are to be tough and aggressive on defense, keep down silly errors, play smart on offense and receive consistency from the bench.
