This past Friday, January 19, Langley High School’s boy’s varsity basketball team had a home game against South Lakes High School’s. With the Seahawks having 10 wins and only 6 loses this season, the Saxons anticipated a very challenging match. On paper, the game looked like two very unevenly matched teams, but what happened tells a different story.  

Langley lost the game 60-48, but remarkably enough the Seahawks only gained a 12 point lead in the last minutes of the game.

“I thought our kids played really hard. They competed, they battled, I think we fouled a little bit too much and turned the ball over too much but the kids really battled and played hard, and they’re going to turn some of those games into wins if they keep playing that way.,” Coach Newman, Langley varsity head coach said. Although his team has a negative record, he is hopeful his team will be successful.  

“I thought we started off strong, you know we didn’t have a lot of time to practice during the week because of all the cancellations, but I think we did a pretty good job, but just kind of fell loose at the end.” Nick Gasparis, a senior guard for Langley said.

“We played well, but I think the [referees] were not very good and weren’t calling the game evenly. I think we lost because of the reffing being very biased.” Addison Wallace, a starting guard for Langley said. Wallace made it clear as to why they lost and many of the students think so as you could hear boo’s from almost the whole gym.  

The players and coaches made it clear that next time they will win and that this game is just a minor speed bump in a long road, and there are many more wins to come. This coming Friday the team faces their number one rival, the Mclean Highlanders, once again, but at home.
