The Montgomery County R-2 Wildcats Boys’ basketball team played 2 non-conference road games last week and came away with a loss and a win. On Tuesday, December 4, they lost to South Callaway 51-31. On Friday, December 7, they avenged a loss 43-30 to New Haven in the R-2 Tournament the week before by defeating New Haven 45-41.

The Wildcats were able to close the gap to 3 points at the end of the third quarter, as they outscored SC 11-9 to make the score 29-26 at the end of the quarter. Unfortunately that was as close as R-2 would get to SC, as SC outscored the Wildcats 22-5 in the fourth quarter to win the game 51-31.

The New Haven game on Friday was just as close as the South Callaway game on Tuesday, however the Wildcats prevailed in the final quarter of the game to come away with the win. The teams played evenly in the first quarter, as the score was tied at 8-8 at the end of the quarter. R-2 outscored NH 14-12 in the second quarter to lead 22-20 at halftime.
