Despite loss, Wildcats having a great season

January 30, 2013 2:19 pm by

Ranked 12th in the state going into last night, the Armstrong Wildcats (14-2, 7-2) boys’ basketball team dropped a close one to the rival Henrico Warriors 72-71:

On Jan. 3, Armstrong gave Henrico its only district loss when the Wildcats beat Henrico 74-72. In both games, Henrico built first-half leads, only for Armstrong to rally back.
This time, when Armstrong held a 45-35 third-quarter lead, Henrico responded.

MaxPreps gives props to Rob Valentine for his effort in the game:

“Big Shot” Rob Valentine hit 7 three pointers and scored 26 points as the Armstrong Wildcats lost a close game to the Henrico Warriors. The game was highly contested and went downt to the wire. Valentine’s big shots kept the Wildcats in striking distance for a victory, however they came up short. Great job Rob.

The Wildcats’ next game is Thursday, January 31 at 7PM at home vs the Varina Blue Devils.
