Jordan Vellmure and Madison Hamilton, Reporters   The varsity boys basketball team took a hard loss to the Woodhaven Warriors last night in the second round of districts, with a score of 59-55.    “We played really good we played great as a team, I just wish we could of came out with the W,” David King said.”   The Warriors took the lead quickly in the beginning of the game, but their offense quickly got shot down by the Bear’s defense. Woodhaven broke through the defense and took the lead going into the second with a score of 14-11.   The second quarter was full of back-to-back shots on both teams along with multiple rebounds by senior center David King.   With strong offensive plays by senior guards Bryce Armstrong and James Ware, as well as defensive plays by sophomore center Devon Forner and King, Wyandotte went into halftime leading the game 29-23.   “We had a lot of confidence at halftime, the team was hype in the locker room, and just we felt good about it,” sophomore Hayden Loya said.   Similar to the second quarter, both teams played well offensively, but the Warriors couldn’t gain a lead and Wyandotte went into the fourth quarter up 38-34.   The beginning of the fourth worked well in the Warrior’s favor gaining eight consecutive points.   After that, both teams went back and forth with scoring free throws.   The momentum changed in their favor after the Warriors called a time out. Woodhaven scored multiple layups, taking the lead.   Throughout the fourth both teams went back and forth, but the Warriors sealed the deal at the free throw line with less than twenty seconds left.   “I didn’t think I’d be upset before the game but when the game ends you think about it and you realize you’ll never play a game again.”   Although this loss upset the team, the returners look forward to their future seasons.    “I think I’ve learned that talent doesn’t always win games, we’re very talented but our record didn’t show it.”
