We’ve got a DVC rivalry on our hands as the Wildcats of Neuqua Valley play host to the Warriors of Waubonsie Valley! Both teams are looking to hit their mid season stride
We start things off early in the 1st qtr where WV’s Halle Williams hits a deep 3 to put the warriors up 3-2
A few possessions later, Junior Mykha Bercompas hits another 3 for Waubonsie and the warriors get of to a nice start, 6-2
Neuqua came to play however, Jessica Sun splashes in a 3 of her own and the Wildcats pull within 1. The Wildcats look to go on a run.
Moments later, Claudia Gallegos gets the baseline layup to go for the Cats and they take the lead! 14-12
2nd qtr now and Neuqua keeps their foot on the gas, Jessica Sun hits another big 3 and the wildcats are up by 5! 20-15
The warriors would battle back though, it’s Mykha Bercompas to the rescue again as she hits another triple to tie the game at 22.
Just before the half and Lauren Mcknight finds Ahniya Melton for the layup and WV leads 27-22!
3rd qtr action and NV still hanging in, Elle Wisner makes a great pass to find Gallegos for another layup and the Wildcats are back within 1 again!
Late 3rd qtr now and Gallegos is still going strong, she gets the shot to go plus the foul and Neuqua is still down just 1! Gallegos had 20 points on the night
4th qtr now and Grace Setter makes a heck of a play as she misses a shot but comes up with a steal and puts in a layup. Warriors lead 38-36
The wildcats respond again and who else! It’s Claudia Gallegos again, here she tips the rebound to herself and finishes to tie the game up at 38
Just a few minutes remain and the Warriors finally deliver the finishing blow, Mhyka Bercompas drills the corner 3, she finished with 14 pts and Waubonsie Valley closes this one out 44-39.
