MINATARE – The Minatare boys basketball team added win number five here last Friday night as the Indians sent the Wolves of Arthur County with their tails between their legs. The Indians are now 5-0 with the 57-18 win.

Leading the scoring attack was Juan Garfio with 13 points, while Javier Guerrero added another 10 points.

The Indians opened the game scoring as Dominic Longoria hit his first attempt, followed by Garfio, Tyler Koke, Yovan Perez and Chance McAllister. At the end of the first quarter, Minatare led 15-6. In the second quarter, Minatare was firing on all cylinders with Longoria, Koke and McAllister scoring. Minatare went in at halftime with a comfortable, 24-10 lead.

As the third quarter opened, Minatare began where it had left off with Javier Guererro scoring and Garfio canning the three-pointer. Garfio then stole the inbound pass for an easy two and hit the jumper to give Minatare a 35-11 lead.

A frustrated Arthur County Coach then collected a technical foul and Perez sunk both the free throws. With 3:11 left in the third quarter, Minatare led 40-11. Minatare extended its lead as the Indians scored 20 unanswered points in the quarter and led 50-11 at the end of the period.

Minatare Head Coach Kyle Cotton emptied his bench in the fourth quarter as Gilbert Rodriguez, Kyler Lane, Jesus Ramirez and Teren Barnett got into the contest. Ramirez hit a three-pointer and Barnett added two as the Indian went on to win.

The Indians will be off until Jan. 10 when they will travel to Chappell and face the Creek Valley Storm (3-3) who picked up a win Dec. 20 against Banner County, 46-36.

Score by quarters 1 2 3 4 – Final
