MOUNTAIN VIEW – The Mountain View Buffs took on the Jackson Broncs and Star Valley Braves last weekend, but were unable to overcome in both games.

After being heavily delayed late into the night by a power outage during the Lady Buffs’ game in Jackson, the Buff boys finally got their turn to take it to the hardwood. They were unable to overcome the challenge against the Jackson Broncs, losing 49-58. The next day, the Buffs came against the Star Valley Braves, where they lost, 48-57.

“We played three really good quarters and a really bad one (against Jackson),” Coach Tony Micheli said of the Buffs’ efforts. “The same thing at Star Valley. We played a very good second half but dug ourselves into too big of a hole. We need to put together a full game.”

Austin Houskeeper, who was the lead scorer for the Buffs in both games, led the team in both games. In Jackson, junior Trystin Walker stepped up to the plate for the Buffs, pulling down 14 rebounds to lead the team in rebounding.

“We took a few things away (from this weekend’s experience) that will hopefully help in the next few weeks,” said Austin Henstra, Buffalo senior leader.
