Christian Gonzalez got the Warriors going in the second quarter scoring 12 points giving the Warriors a five point advantage at the half. The Warriors continued to pace the game leading 36-28 after three quarters. The Comanche turned up the heat in the fourth, combined with sloppy passing by the Warriors to close the gap. The Warriors were able to cling to a 43-41 win.

Leading the way for the Warriors was Christian Gonzalez 29 points, Chris Moreno 5 points , Jaime Franco 3 points, while Julian Loya, Alec Mertes and Chase Mertes each added 2 points. Christian Gonzalez also recorded 14 rebounds , Chris Moreno added a team high 4 assists.

The 7th Grade B team played tough trailing throughout the game. A late surge closed the gap with Jaime Franco stealing passes on two consecutive plays scoring layups on both. The second one sealed the victory as time ran off for a 31 -30 win.

The Warriors close out the season Thursday against the Apache’s .
