At half time, the crowd got to check out the brand new panther mascot suit. At the end of the third quarter, the score was 20-12, and Ashfork was winning.

The fourth quarter was thrilling. With only a few seconds left, Tri- City could almost taste the victory because the score was 24-22. At the very last second, a player from Ashfork shot the ball and scored a three-pointer. The game ended 24-25 with another Ashfork victory.

The boys’ basketball team played after the girls, and the game was close. Sadly, Tri-City lost the game as well.
