Home game heartache
Lone Peak Big Horns falls to Shields Valley Rebels
Lone Peak Big Horns fans showed up full force for their girls and boys varsity teams’ first home games of the season on December 20, spilling into visitor seating as all the spots began to fill on the home team’s side. Attendees seemed to agree – it might have been the biggest fan turnout they’d ever seen.
The varsity girls hit took to the court first, taking on the Shields Valley Rebels. While the game was a close one, the Big Horns ultimately lost in a close finale that seemed like it just might have gone their way, 30-33.
The Big Horn boys had their shot next, getting squashed by the Rebels early on but coming back to keep things close. At the half the Big Horns were only down by 10, even outscoring the Rebels in the fourth quarter bringing in 25 points to their 19, but the bitter end the final score was 70-82.
Following winter break the Big Horns will be back to compete on their home court, taking on Gardiner on January 3 and Twin Bridges on January 4.
