MAXWELL — The Burney Boys Varsity Basketball team fell to the Maxwell Panthers 35-59.

Burney managed to hold a respectable 18-23 scoring effort in the first period but saw the Panthers double their score by the half while holding the Raiders to 18.

The third gave both teams more movement with the Raiders bringing their side of the score board to 35 while the Panthers rose to 59.

The game ended with Maxwell jumping another 11 points in the final period. The

Raiders were able to gain 15 points but it was too little, to late, closing Burney’s basketball season.



Jesse Lopez knew exactly where he wanted to go and the Panther’s number 11 had better not get in the road.
