Backyard Brawled

December 12, 2018

Levi Anderson and Avery Kinkade paced the Valley Lumberjacks with 10 of the team's 13 three-pointers, while Matt Saxon and Trey Slider sank five of the 'Cats seven triples made to highlight a 81-55 Valley victory on Dec. 7 inside the Lumberjack Gymnasium.

Anderson scored three straight bonus bombs, while Kinkade knocked down three two-pointers to help Valley take a 19-15 first quarter lead.

Despite three long-range bonus bombs and a deuce by Kinkade, the Wildcats would go on a 19-14 run in the second period, thanks in part to six Slider points with one triple, a pair of Ethan Cross and Ty Cain buckets, as well as a Saxon three-pointer, to take a 34-33 half time lead.
