The 8th grade Roughnecks notched their 4th win of the season Monday night against the Winona Wildcats 47-40. The win moves them to 3-0 in district play and 4-1 overall. After jumping out to an 11-4 lead after 1 quarter, the Necks held a 7 point lead heading into halftime. Towards the end of the 3rd quarter, Winona went on an 8-0 run to take a 2 point lead heading into the 4th quarter. White Oak doubled up Winona down the stretch outscoring them 18-9 in the 4th.
“In my opinion, basketball is a game of runs, 6-0, 8-2, 11-0. Teams that can handle and manage runs from their opponents usually stand a good chance of winning. Tonight was a great game for us, on the road, in a hostile environment.”
The Roughnecks host the Arp Tigers Monday night before heading into the Christmas break.
