— Boswell paces Roos to win over Arlington
The Weatherford Kangaroo cagers proved resilient on Tuesday, in a District 3-5A match at home against Arlington High. After seeing its first-quarter lead dissolve to an eight-point halftime deficit, Weatherford came storming back after the break and held on for a 61-58 win.
The Roos were knotted with the Colts at 38-each entering the final period, when both teams turned up the offensive heat, scoring a combined 43 points in the quarter.
Collin Boswell had the hottest hand on the night for WHS, leading all scorers with 26 points. The Roos also received considerable boosts from Sam Couch and Lane Guest, who added 17 and 12 points, respectively.
The victory was the second for the Roos in district play. Weatherford will look to keep the offensive fires burning on Friday, when it hosts Paschal.
