With just six players on the roster due to injury, the Sioux County Warriors suffered tough losses against Bridgeport, Hay Springs and Morrill last week.

Facing the Bridgeport JV, the Warriors managed just a single point – a free throw by Colton Randall – in the first half Tuesday and were trailing 50-1 at half-time.

They fared a bit better in the third quarter, outscoring the Bulldogs 6-5, but Bridgeport cruised to the 65-9 win.

Sioux County struggled with cold shooting hands again Thursday in Hay Springs, where the Hawks earned a 48-18 victory over the Warriors. Hay Springs raced out to a 30-5 lead by half-time and padded their margin with a 15-3 run in the third. Sioux County scored most of its points in the final eight minutes, netting 10 as the Hawks JV squad took over.

The Morrill Lions used a 28-point first quarter to boost themselves to a 51-19 win over the Warriors Saturday. Sioux County netted just four points in the quarter and added the same in the second quarter, giving the Lions a 40-8 first-half advantage.

Morrill only scored nine in the third, but a lone free throw by Ritchie Gutierrez was the only point added to the tally for the Warriors. Sioux County managed a 10-2 run in the fourth as the Lions’ JV took the court to cap the game.
