The Weatherford varsity boys basketball team nearly ended the night as celebratory as it began on Friday.
After the home crowd bade farewell to its seniors in a pre-game ceremony, the Roos battled back from a halftime deficit and forced an overtime period against Arlington Lamar. In the contentious extra five minutes, WHS fell just short against the playoff-bound Vikes, losing 38-37.
Weatherford will conclude its 2013-14 season on Tuesday, traveling to play Arlington Sam Houston. Roo seniors are Sam Couch, Mike Layne, Evan Curry, Mason Priess, Collin Boswell, Jason Kuritz and Ryan Merrill.
