Boys Basketball Falls at Salem

Boys basketball traveled to Salem High School to take on the Spartans Dec. 5. The two teams split the match ups last season, with each team winning their home game. The Wildcats were coming off of a season opening defeat against Alleghany High School and were looking for their first win of the season.

The game began with a rapid pace. Lots of transition points and fast break opportunities were used by each team. Salem held a slim lead at the end of the first quarter, and carried a seven point lead into halftime.

Senior guard Henry Lambert heated up quickly in the second half, as he poured in 26 points in the game. Senior center Milo Mulitalo also contributed 20 points. The team’s offense ran through these two key players. 

When asked about the matchup, Mulitalo provided his thoughts.

“The effort was certainly there, we just struggled to knock down some shots in key moments. We are looking to rebound with the rest of our games this week,” said Mulitalo.

The game concluded with a 67-60 loss for the Wildcats. Lambert and Mulitalo were the leading scorers, while Junior guard Zane Ramsey had some crucial rebounds.

The Wildcats have a record of 0-3. Their next game is a rematch against Alleghany at Alleghany High School Dec. 8.
