The Washburn boys continue to go through the season with impressive wins, but they came into last week looking ahead to a couple of potential bumps in the road with games against district opponents: the Center-Stanton Wildcats and the Turtle Lake-Mercer-McClusky Trojans. The Cardinals turned it up in the fourth quarter to put away the Wildcats 66-55, but they couldn’t quite match the pace of the Trojans, losing 72-53. Washburn recovered just one day after their defeat, beating Flasher 61-55. In their first game of the week, the Cardinals faced the team that gave them their first loss of the year in the McLean County Tournament back in December, The Center-Stanton Wildcats. Center-Stanton showed that they could play with this improved Washburn team in the early going, keeping things all tied up going in the halftime break by using a diverse approach to score-getting.
