The Neligh-Oakdale basketball teams went 1-1 in Lindsay on Thursday night.
The Lady Warriors fell to Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family, 64-25, while the Warriors outlasted the Bulldogs for the 67-62 win.
Boys Coach Frank Gade said it was a "solid win" for the 10-2 Warriors, but he feels they need to improve their defensive efforts.
"We're in the middle of tough stretch, where we have 5 games in 7 days, so mental focus is at a premium," Gade said. "Hopefully we can get the defense right today at practice in preparations for Madison tomorrow."
Grant White led the Warriors with 19 points, followed by Alex Kerkman with 18 and Tyson Belitz with 15. Kerkman knocked down a game high five 3-pointers, shooting 71 percent from beyond the arc. Click here for complete stats.
