The Center-Stanton girls’ basketball team got in one game before New Year’s, and the boys’ team had their first game of the New Year cancelled.
The girls faced off against Heart River at home Thursday and came up just short of a win. Center-Stanton led at the end of the first three quarters and was looking to pull away in the fourth quarter.
The fourth quarter started with Center-Stanton up 35-31, but they couldn’t figure out a way to deny Heart River the win. Heart River earned a tough win, topping Center-Stanton 48-44.
Neither team shot free throws well during the game. Both teams shot 50 percent or worse during the matchup.
Two players reached double-digits for Heart River: Bailey Olson and Bayli Krance. Olson, a junior guard, scored 13 points and Krance, a 5-3 junior guard, scored 11 points in her team’s win.
