Foss scores 86 in 3 games

The Trojans boys basketball team ended a three-game road trip at Mojave, losing 87-55. On Thursday the Trojans dropped a game to Western (5-20 overall, 3-10 Sunset League) 78-63 and then lost to Bonanza (12-12, 1-6 Division I Northwest League) on Friday 77-53.

Trojans coach John Toomer said his 7-man team did their best against the Rattlers.

“They pressured us with 15 to our 7 guys which wore us down in the fourth, but once again we worked hard to the finish,” Toomer said.

A bright spot of the three games was that senior Danny Foss scored 86 points during that stretch. He had 33 at Western, 23 at Bonanza and 30 at Mojave.

The Trojans (3-19, 1-12) end their season at home against Spring Valley (9-12, 4-9) tonight at 6:30 p.m.
