In Greeley, The Frontier Academy Wolverines and The Platte Valley Broncos were back and forth for 3 and a half quarters until the Broncos made a late fourth quarter run and came away with a 49-40 win.
“I thought we played with great effort and passion tonight. Our defense tonight was exactly what we need to do to compete with some of the best teams in the state. Platte Valley is the number four team in the state and we just proved if we played together we can play with the best in the state.” Coach Wood said.
With 3:58 left in the 4th Quarter, the Broncos held a one point lead. Platte Valley went on a 5 point run and Frontier Academy could not get any closer. “They made that run and then we had to start fouling at the end.” Coach Wood added. “We had our opportunities but unfortunately we struggled scoring tonight.”
The Wolverines were lead in scoring by Zach Hidalgo 18, Robert Noffsinger and James Pike both added 6.
The Wolverines will travel to Liberty Commons on Thursday.
