Trojans boys basketball on 3-game winning streak

Three wins in one week from the Pahrump Valley boys basketball team last week after they won at home against the Pinecrest Academy Sloan Canyon in a tight match that ended 59-57.

The Trojans had a dominant first half where in the first quarter the team scored 25 points. By the end of the first half the Trojans were nine points above the Pirates.

At the end of the third quarter, both teams scored 13 points, which allowed Pahrump Valley to keep their lead. Sloan Canyon would attempt to take the win from them.

Sloan Canyon stayed consistent until the end. Meanwhile, Pahrump Valley only scored seven points in the fourth quarter. But the Pirates didn’t push hard enough, as they would only score 14 points in the last quarter, which left the team a 3-pointer away from taking the win away from the Trojans.
