Basketball: Trojans boys lose first game to Del Sol

The Pahrump Trojans boys basketball team went into action on Monday to start the season, losing to Del Sol, 70-46.

Bryce Odegard led the team with 15 points, and the team’s other guard, Antonio Fortin, scored 13. David Sidhu had eight, Parker Hart had five, Anthony Martin three and Tristyn Wombaker two.

The lack of points in the third quarter killed Pahrump as the Dragons had just a two-point lead at the half, 25-23. Del Sol outscored the Trojans 23-7 in the third quarter. The Trojans did a bit better in the fourth by scoring 16 but it wasn’t enough.

The Trojans now head to the Serpent Classic at Mineral County High School this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

In the only other 3A action, in the Sunrise League, Tech beat Bonanza 53-51 for their first win of the season.

The Trojans girls team opened their season on Tuesday night against Moapa. Summary of that game to follow on Friday.
