Gorillas claim win over Bennett Co.

The Gregory Gorillas picked up their first victory of the year on Saturday, December 29, 2018, over the Bennett Co. Warriors by a score of 58-45. The Gorillas took the lead immediately and never trailed the entire contest while holding a 12-8 first quarter lead and 24-18 halftime lead.

“We got ahead early but had a scoring drought in the second quarter that allowed Bennett get back into the game but we were able to get a little separation just before halftime.”

The Warriors were able to keep the game close through the third quarter and into the fourth quarter. With about five minutes left in the game, Gregory held a slim 2 point lead, but after a Bennett County technical foul and four made free throws by the Gorillas, Gregory was able to regain a comfortable lead and grab their first win of the year.
