Eagles come up short against Highland Park 47-42

January 21, 2012

On Friday night, the Sanford-Fritch Eagles matched up well against a quick, athletic Amarillo Highland Park Hornets team. The Hornets are a fast paced, no structure team that loves to run the court and Sanford-Fritch stayed right with them for the entire night.
Despite some interesting officiating, Sanford-Fritch showed some moments of good basketball.
Highland Park started off on quick run, capitalizing on every turnover. Coach Simmons finally used a timeout to stop Highland Park momentum with only 1:40 left and a 16-8 score in first quarter.
Senior Chris Bryan had some easy shots and great blocks to pull Sanford-Fritch closer at 18-12.
The back and forth battle continued and Sanford-Fritch stayed within reach to end half 25-19.
The third quarter was a Colton Valle stealing show- he tortured the Hornets all night.
Pretty equal scoring from most of the Sanford-Fritch team, with Valle as leader with 8.
The Eagles crawled back within four points to start the fourth quarter 35-31.
A couple of key timeouts to keep the game close and under control wouldn’t help the Eagles get their first district win. They would fall short 47-42 in heartbreaker.
Big game Tuesday against the Childress Bobcats, who are in first place within district and ranked #8 in state.
Colton Valle 8 pt; 4 blks
Ryan Blakely 6 point; 3 reb
Trey Henry 6 pts
Christian Ward 6 pts; 7 reb
Chris Bryan 6 pts; 5 reb
