The Central Warriors girls basketball team didn't come out with a win when they opened league play against the No. 6 Fruita Monument Wildcats, but they did take away some positives.
Warriors Head Coach Mary Doane said she was happy with the defensive effort against the Wildcats in the 44-30 loss, especially rebounding and limiting second chance points. They look to carry that effort into Friday's match up against Moffat County.
The Warriors head to the Bulldog's home court for a non-league game. The team said it welcomes the opportunity to tune up some things before diving back into Southwestern League play.
"It just keeps us rolling and its nice being able to play a lot because then we can take everything we've done at practice and put it into a game," said Sicily Belcastro.
"We don't have a ton of teams in our league," said Doane. "It's only the five of us. We have such a small league that we have these games stuck in between our league games. They're good because they give us a chance to clean some stuff up before we get another big matchup."
Tip-off is at 7 p.m. in Moffat County on Friday.
