Neligh-Oakdale hosted Osmond on Tuesday, but the Tigers weren't very friendly when they came to town.
The Warriors dropped both games against the Tigers. Scoring wasn't an issue in the girls' battle, as the Warriors recorded their highest point total of the year despite the 69-57 loss. As a team, the Warriors shot 31 percent from the floor.
That high point total came courtesy of an incredible night by freshman Trinity Kurpgeweit. She finished 10-13 from the floor, posting a team-high 25 points and nine rebounds. Bailey Frey also finished in double digits, scoring 10 points, including hitting both of her attempts from three-point land. Haley Kerkman added eight points of her own while pulling in eight rebounds.
The boys had a rough night against the Tigers, hitting just 28 percent of their shots in a 52-36 loss. The Warriors put up just 21 points in the first three quarters before nearly doubling their point total with a 15-point fourth.
Austin Rice led the Warriors with eight points and eight rebounds. Julien Hearn and Hunter Charf chipped in with seven points each for Neligh-Oakdale. Most of the damage came from beyond the arc as the Warriors hit 46 percent of their shots from three-point land, led by two from Charf.
