Pahranagat Valley and White Pine ended the year with a non-league match against each other.

Chris Young scored 20 points for the Bobcats, but it wasn’t enough to overcome two men in double figures for the Panthers. Sophomore Cody Williams had 16 points and senior teammate Jordan Cryts added 13.

Alamo came out with a hot hand in the first quarter and built up an 18-5 lead and the Bobcats could rarely, if at all, get closer than 10 points in a 63-42 loss.

Coach Charles Young spoke well of Young’s play. “He is the leader and team captain and we expect him to come out and have those games.”  The 6-1 senior is averaging about 13.9 points per game, up considerably from his 7.9 per game average as a junior.

Dekoda Bereta and Nate Lee were the next scores in line for the Bobcats, but only with six points each.

Pahranagat coach Mike Strong said this game was one of the best of the season for the Panthers (6-3).

White Pine has yet to win their first game, 0-8, and finished their non-league schedule with a game at home against West Wendover (4-9).

This weekend, the Bobcats begin league play with two home games against Laughlin and Needles.

The Meadows, Mountain View, and Agassi Prep are the leaders in the league at the present time, each with no league losses. Agassi (8-0) is the defending Division III state champion. A senior dominated squad, the Stars are averaging 69.5 points per game, tops for all teams in the league.
