The eighth-grade boys’ basketball team at W. T. Eich Intermediate School snagged the first game of its season with a 51-27 home victory over the W. C. Riles Huskies of Antelope. The Wildcat offensive attack was led by Kyle Yomogida who put up 12 points, and Dominique Marrero, with nine points of his own and seven assists. Austin Black contributed with nine rebounds. The second half opened with the Wildcats edging their opponents by a mere six points, but great defensive efforts from Ruslan Levko and Sean Marten helped cage the Huskies, opening the way for a 20-0 third quarter scoring frenzy. Eich coach Jerry Scott was cautiously pleased with his team’s first victory. " It was a good game,” Scott said, “but a great effort."
