MOUNTAIN VIEW – The Mountain View Buff boys stepped up to get a big win over Pinedale last Friday, and walked away with a 65-43 win over the Pinedale Wranglers.

On Saturday, the Buffs fought a close one against Lander but were unable to pull away with the win, falling 47-51 in overtime.

“It was a fun game,” said senior Austin Henestra about the matchup against Lander, where he was one of the lead scorers in the game. “We had our chances to pull it out. But with some costly turnovers and a few missed free throws, we just couldn’t do it.”

Henestra and Brennan Walk were the leaders for the Buffs in scoring, while Hayden Meeks led the team in rebounding.

“We got off to a very good start. We were scoring well in transition offense and played outstanding defense, only allowing 12 points in the first half,” said Buffs head coach Tony Micheli about the Lander matchup. “It was a great high school basketball game, and we happened to come up a little short in overtime. We didn’t make some big plays in multiple areas that would have sealed the game for us. We did better and are headed in the right direction.”

Walk, along with teammate Austin Houskeeper, led the team in scoring against Pinedale.

He said, “We played very good this week. We just couldn’t finish it off on Saturday, but I’m looking forward to playing them again. Hopefully, we get that chance in regionals.”
