Unable to make a return trip to the 3A state tournament, Boulder City High School’s girls basketball team fell to rival Moapa Valley 37-35 on Feb. 20 in the 3A Southern Region playoffs.
A tight game until the end, the highest lead of the night was 3 points for the Pirates after the third quarter in a thrilling matchup.
“It was a great game,” head coach Lisa Foster said. “Going into it, I just said I hope we play as well as we can and we did. I think both teams are fantastic and if we played 10 times, we’d probably each win five. It’s a toss up every time.”
Moapa Valley ended up winning the 3A Southern Region championship.
