Warriors battle two, one-point district games

Alta-Aurelia boys’ basketball team played in two games decided by one point each in district play and finished the season with a 16-8 record.

After a 52-51 win over East Sac County Feb. 15, the Warriors battled OABCIG at Cherokee Feb. 19. The Falcons held the Warriors scoreless in the final 2:43 to emerge with the 39-38 district final win and advance to substate.

“That was a tough one,” said Alta-Aurelia coach Evan Franzmeier after the OABCIG game. “Going to take me a few days to get over that one. Very disappointing outcome. I felt like we outplayed them. We executed the game plan very well."
