West Ranch Boys Varsity Basketball Defeat Ventura
Duel in the Desert Tournament
December 1, 2017
After a great win Against Kennedy High School on Wednesday, our Wildcats came through once again against Ventura High School in the “Duel in the Desert” tournament.
To start the game well, Austin Galuppo came out with a three-pointer for his first shot. That first shot allowed the boy’s adrenaline to get going, allowing them to finish the first half with a score of 29-19. Going into the second half, juniors Carter Williams and Andrew Austin, exploded with power plays enabling the Cats to further their lead to 48-37 at the end of the third quarter. Tensions were high in the fourth quarter as Ventura was slowly coming back, but the Wildcats stayed strong on their feet and came out with a win of 67-62. Austin Galuppo had 19 points, Carter Williams 16, and Andrew Austin 14.
The Cats advance onto the next round of the tournament playing Highland High School on Dec. 1.
Great job Wildcats!
