After rattling off 19 wins in a row, the Leyton Warriors finally lost a game, then another in the final stretch of the regular season. But the Leyton boys got back on the winning track right in time for the Subdistricts with a win in their final game of the regular season against Garden County.
The Warriors traveled up to Oshkosh on February 15 to match up with the Eagles, and had a solid start to the game. With their fast passing, good shot selection and solid defense, the Warriors opened a seven point lead at 19-to-17 at the end of the first period. The Warriors continued their good play into the second quarter, putting up another 18 points in the second quarter while holding the Eagles to 12, opening a 37-to-24 lead at the half.
Leyton rode their defense in the second half, holding the Eagles to just 12 points in the third period and eight in the fourth quarter, while putting up another 25 points in the second half to walk away with a 62-to-44 victory. The win moves the Warriors' record to 20-and-2 on the season, and positions themselves well for the Subdistrict tournament. Leyton was scheduled to match up against Hemingford, who they beat by 13 points back in December, in the first round of the D1-12 tournament on Tuesday in Dalton.
