The JV boys’ basketball team played their last home game of the 2019-2020 season on Friday, Feb. 14. The Warriors faced off against the Stony Point Tigers, and ended up losing the game 67-61.

“It felt like every home game but there was a voice in the back of my head saying ‘This is our last home game; We need to play our hardest.’” center Eric Cadar ‘22 said.

The Warriors started off strong scoring within the first couple minutes of the game giving them a three point lead. The first period ended with the Warriors in the lead with 14-11.

Continuing the excitement into the second period, the Warriors finished still leading with 33-28. Despite being thrown off a little by the Tigers’ playing style, the Warriors were able to bounce back.

“We were adjusted accordingly and were able to match up well with them,” point guard Robbie Jeng ‘21 said.

In the second half of the game, however, the Tigers stole the lead. The third period continued to have a fluctuation in scoring going back and forth between the Warriors and the Tigers, and concluded with the Tigers emerging with an eight point lead 49-41. Ultimately, the Warriors could not keep the lead and ended the fourth period 67-61, unfortunately losing the last home game of the season.

The Warriors will conclude their season with a final match against the Cedar Ridge Raiders away from home on Tuesday, Feb. 8.
