Warriors Lose to Jays

by Rick Hatfield

December 18, 2020

The Southern Cloud Warriors lost to the high flying St. John's/Tipton Blujays on Thursday night by the score of 47 – 26.  The Jays are a quick, talented team this year and the Warriors are for the most part very young.  The Blujays were only leading by 5 going into the 2nd quarter and then they went off to a 16-0 spurt that really put the game away.  Edward Horinek scored 13 points and Tyson Gates scored 18 points to lead the Jays.


The Warriors did have some bright spots, Colton Walters made his return to the Warrior line-up after being in quarantine the first two games and he scored 10 points and pulled down a career high 19 boards.  Kye Chase score 12 points and pulled down 14 boards of his own.  Chase has been in double figures 2 of the 1st three games of the season.  Ayden Williams scored his 1st basket as a Warrior for 2 points, he had scored a free throw previously, and Donovan Peterson scored his first basket as a Warrior for 2 points on the night to round out the Warrior scoring.


“I thought we did pretty well considering the team we were playing, they are really good.  We have to get a handle on turnovers, they are just killing us.  We had 35 on the night.  We really struggled with their pressure and it took us out of our offense as well.  These things are going to happen when you are playing young guys.  Still we got all 8 kids that suited up playing time and that is important for the future and I was proud of how hard they are trying.”  Said Warrior Coach Rick Hatfield.


The Warriors “B” team tied the Jays 4 – 4 when Mark Paillet scored a jump shot at the buzzer.  No overtime was played. Carson Thomas and Kale Leners scored 2 each for the Jays and Ayden Williams and Mark Paillet scored 2 each for the Warriors.


The Warriors now have Christmas break and will play Thunder Ridge at Agra on Friday, January 8, 2021.
