“I’m proud of the way we played this game and others throughout the season,” said coach Dave Mettam. “This team’s character is to never quit in the face of adversity. They played tough, with class and good sportsmanship.”

Warriors nose out Huskies

December 7, 2011

The Big Pine Warriors basketball squad lived up to its name Monday night in a down-to-the-wire, 42-39 win over the Mammoth Huskies.
Big Pine went 3 points ahead of Mammoth off two free throws from Ryan Carrington. With eight seconds left in the game and three Huskies capable of hitting 3-pointers, the Warriors’ defense held the line.

“We started slow,” said coach Darren Chirrick. “We didn’t play very aggressively to keep out of foul problems.”
