After settling down,the Warriors matched the Longhorns until Brayden Austin drained a three pointer as the first quarter expired.

The 7th Grade B team opened up with a close game only to fall short to the Longhorns 18-14. Kyle Lambley scored 10 pts as Edgar Galindo and Eduardeo Martinez each scored 2 points.
The second contest took the Warriors to Hugoton. The A team fell to a well oiled Eagle squad. We never got into a rhythm with full court pressure and a fast tempo game. We lost composure and committed too many turnovers. The second half saw the Warriors continue to play hard. David Gilmore’s defense late in the fourth showed Warrior hustle and pride.
The B-team fought hard against the Eagles. Trailing at the half, a duo of Rylin Roher and Spencer Blaser helped propel the Warriors back in contention. The Warriors fell short 23-18.
Eisenhower travels to Horace Good Thursday to open League play.
