MC, SV and BE win, Logan and Bear River lose in boys high school basketball

<strong>Mustangs defeat Ogden, 62-45</strong>

Mountain Crest met Ogden Friday night and looked to not make this game a repeat of their last meeting. The last time these two teams played, Mountain Crest held a commanding lead entering the fourth quarter, but soon lost that lead along with the game. Well, at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Mountain Crest held a 14 point lead and were able to hold on to that lead to finish the game out. The final score: Mountain Crest 62 Ogden 45. -Todd Olsen

<strong>Box Elder hands Logan its fifth straight loss, 73-56</strong>

The Box Elder Bees built on a strong lead at the start and handed the Logan High Grizzlies their 5th straight loss 73 – 56 at Brigham City. The Bees led 28 to 7 after just one quarter and led the entire way. The Grizz fall to 3-9 on the season and face Sky View in Smithfield Wednesday night. -Bill Walter

<strong>Sky View rallies for 51-45 victory at Bonneville</strong>

The Sky View Bobcats beat the Bonneville Lakers on the road Friday night by a score of 51-45, coming back after being down for most of the first half and grinding out a key victory. Sky View was able to come back due to their defensive effort in the second half and they were able to hold on for the win by making some clutch free-throws down the stretch. The Bobcats were lead by senior Don Corbell, who scored a game-high 16 points, 11 of which came in the third quarter. Riley Knowles and Grayson Moore also contributed, scoring nine and seven points, respectively. The Lakers were lead by Thaddeus Galvez, who put up 13 points in a losing effort. -Weston Mangum

<strong>Bears lose close one to Judge Memorial, 48-41</strong>

The Bears were oh so close to completing a worse to first finish and taking the Region 11 title on their home court. Unfortunately, Judge Memorial wouldn’t have any of it and got out of Garland with a 48-41 win. The loss puts the Bears in a tough situation now, they will travel to Cedar City and play against Cedar in their inter-region playoff game to see which team will move on to the 3A state tournament. Coach Winters wouldn’t look at the downside. “It hurts to lose a game with so much riding on the line,” said Winters. “But we’re still playing basketball and we need to focus on Cedar. It doesn’t end here.” The Bears’ matchup with Cedar will be next Friday night. But for Friday night it was tough. Bear River held a one point lead going into the final frame but couldn’t hold on. For the seniors it was even tougher as they played their final home game of their high school career. But it’s been a season to hold their heads high. One year ago the Bears finished the season with only one win. This season they finished their last 10 games with 7 wins and will head into Cedar City to play the Redmen, looking to continue a much improved season. -Ajay Salveson
