High School Basketball
Last season when Metea Valley and Waubonsie Valley boys basketball met up on the court, both games came down to the final seconds. So why should this season be any different? The Mustangs hosted the Warriors on Friday in a game full of big momentum swings. Early on, Ethan Helwig led the way for Metea with his outside shooting. But Eric Cannon knocked down six three pointers for Waubonsie as part of a 19-0 run to give the Warriors a lead into the final minute. In the waning moments, Holden Rank found himself open for the go-ahead jumper, completing a 10-0 run for the Mustangs. Metea hung on for the 53-30 win in another thriller between the Eola Road rivals.
