Warriors Finally Get to Play!

by Rick Hatfield

December 11, 2020

Pike Valley had too much for the very young Southern Cloud Warriors team on Thursday night, defeating the Warriors 47 – 18.  The Warriors came into the contest with six 6th graders, one 7th grader and one 8th grader.  Still the Warriors played hard, yes they made some mistakes, but they never gave up and played hard all the way until the end.


Pike Valley was led by Andy Cooper with 23 points.  No other Panther had more than 6 points.  The Warriors struggled to break the Panther press and that led to 27 Warrior turnovers.


The Warriors were led by Kye Chase, the only 8th grader on the team right now, hopefully the Warriors will get Colton Walters and Dashawn Peterson back after Christmas, Chase had 14 on the night.  Kye had 11 boards on the night as well.  Mark Paillet scored 2 points and Cole Liby scored 2 points and pulled down 7 rebounds as well.  All 8 Warriors that were suited up saw action in the game.


In the “B” game the Warriors were defeated 24 – 4.  Mark Paillet scored all 4 points for the Warriors.  Brycen Robison scored 12 points, Dayton Reeves scored 6 points and Ezra Benne scored 6 points to round out the Pike Valley scoring.


“I thought we played hard, we are really young and we are going to make mistakes, but our guys never gave up.  We just have to work at getting better.  I think the young guys were surprised at how fast the game is played.”  Quoted Coach Hatfield.


The Warriors face Lincoln  on Monday night at Glasco.  Games start at 4:00 PM.
