New Town 71 Watford City 61
Watford City made the short trip east to New Town where they lost to the Eagles last Tuesday night. It was the first meeting since 2017.
“I loved renewing this rivalry,” said Watford City coach, David Gumke. “There have been many very good battles between Watford City and New Town. It is good to have them back on our schedule. Lots of respect to them and their program over the years.”
The Wolves scored the first five points, but New Town ended the first quarter on a 19-6 run. Watford City answered with seven consecutive points to get back within 19-18. New Town took a 35-30 lead into halftime, thanks in large part to their three-point shooting.
