MEDICINE HAT, AB – Plenty of basketball at Medicine Hat High School on Saturday, as all four Mohawks and Kwahommies were in action.

Leading things off were the Kwahommies juniors, trying to shake off a 66-55 loss to the LCI Clippers on January 19.

Medicine Hat fell just short however, losing a one-point decision 63-62 to the Cardston Wildcats.

Forward Taya Karsten had a game-high 18 points in the loss, while Janelle Stegen also contributed 10 points for Medicine Hat.

Falling to a 4-2 record on the season, the Kwahommies are two points behind the Wildcats for first place in their division.

Following that game, the senior Kwahommies took to the court against Cardston High and looked to improve on their 2-3 record.

This one wasn’t close however, as the Wildcats ran over the Kwahommies to a 78-60 final score.

Senior Rhiannon Ware scored the vast majority of Medicine Hat’s points, as her 17 points attributed for 28 percent of her team’s totals.

Medicine Hat’s senior girls now hold a record of 2-4 and sit alone in sixth place in their division, eight points behind the Raymond Coments for first place.

Attention turned to the Mohawks later that night, with the junior Mohawks facing off against the Catholic Central Cougars out of Lethbridge.

Austin Walton had 23 points in an 81-65 win over Catholic Central, while Orin May, Emad Ibrahim, and Gabriel Baldovinos all hit double-digits in points.

Winning just their second game of the season, the Mohawks now hold a 2-5 record and have moved into a tie for fifth place with Raymond High.

Finishing up the evening were the senior Mohawks, trying to erase a loss to Cardston High the previous night.

Medicine Hat’s third win of the season will have to wait though, as the Mohawks suffered a 101-98 loss on their home court.

Post player Bailey Gosse was a determined Mohawk, scoring a team-high 33 points for Medicine Hat, while Jaxon May and Ethan Egert also had solid evenings in the loss.

Moving to a 2-5 record as well, the senior Mohawks are sitting in sixth place in their division.

The Kwahommies junior and senior teams return to Medicine Hat High on Wednesday night when they will host the W.R. Myers Rebels from Taber.
