The Greeley Central boys fell 80-70 in a hard fought scrap at Silver Creek on Friday night. The ‘Cats held a four point advantage at the half and only trailed by 2 at the end of the 3rd period, but late free throws by the Raptors sealed the win for the #7 team in the state RPI rankings. Greeley Central once again relied on balance as five Wildcats scored in double figures. Xavier Bonham continued his torrid shooting run by hitting 3 of 4 from beyond the 3 point line en route to a game high 19 points. Jackson Hayslip added 16, and Steven Maldonado chipped in 12, all from 3 point land. Leading rebounder Samuel Perez grabbed 6 rebounds to go with his 11 points and Jared Lesser scored 10 points.
The loss drops the ‘Cats to 6-4 in the Northern Conference and 9-10 overall. The Wildcats will host the league leading Longmont Trojans on Tuesday, February 6.
