The Cobras boys basketball team beat Randolph 55-44 on December 10 and the kids played very well, according to Coach Adam Girtman.

"They played sharp basketball and did what we're supposed to do," he said. "The kids put out the effort and got the win."

Isaiah Wannarka scored 14 points, Cameron Marquardt, 10, and Garrett Dahms, 10.

Triton lost to Southland 63-50 on December 12.

"We played a good first half with intensity, but we went cold in the second half and had trouble scoring," Coach Girtman said. "The shots just wouldn't go in for six minutes and we couldn't stop them until it was too late."

Dahms scored 16 points and had 11 rebounds and 6 blocks. Marquardt scored 13 points and Wannarka, 10.

The Cobras lost 62-34 to Byron on December 13.

"We had 29 turnovers," Coach Girtman said. "We couldn't handle everything we were supposed to do. We couldn't handle this game. The kids got rattled and didn't respond very well."

Wannarka scored 22 points and Braedon Dostal, 4.

The Cobras will play three games again this week, Goodhue on Tuesday on the road, Medford at home on Thursday with the girls playing at 5:45 and the boys at 7:15, and Cannon Falls on the road on Friday before the Christmas break.
