Ukiah/Long Creek teams lose tough games

The Ukiah/Long Creek girls nearly won their first game Friday, but fell to Huntington in the final minutes of the game, 40-36.

Head coach Amos Studtmann said the team got off to a rough start and had to claw their way back from a double-digit deficit.

With two minutes left the girls had a 36-35 lead, but a turnover while attempting to run out the clock and then a foul that sent Huntington to the free throw line put the game out of reach.

The girls team lost Saturday’s game against highly ranked Crane 72-23. Studtmann said playing Crane gives the team an opportunity to see what to shoot for in the future and work on their skills.

The boys also fell to Crane, 58-38. Head coach TC Connor could not be reached for comment.

Next up, the girls team will go on the road to play back-to-back games.

For the first game they play Four Rivers (6-12, 1-5) on Feb. 14. Tip-off is at 6 p.m. (MT). In the second match up, they will take on Jordan Valley (15-6, 5-1). The game starts at 2 p.m. (MT).
