Boys Basketball at Castle Rock Classic

The Railer boys played their first game against Dighton on Tuesday, December 5th. During this game the boys easily gained their first win of the tournament with a score of 62-41. Next, they traveled back to Quinter on Friday, December 8th to take on the Atwood Buffaloes. This game was a little closer, but the boys still came out on top with the final score being 56-54. Both of these wins automatically pushed the team to the championship against last years champions, the Hoxie Indians. The score was very back and forth the entire game. In the last couple of minutes in the fourth quarter, Ellis blew an 11 point lead and allowed Hoxie to score a 2 point field goal, which tied up the game. Unfortunately, Hoxie won the game 62-59 and the Ellis boys placed 2nd in the tournament.
