Less than a month into the start of the season, the Tooele Buffaloes boys basketball team finds itself with an 0-6 record after their game Wednesday night against Grantsville and Friday against Bonneville.
Hosting the undefeated Cowboys, the Buffaloes looked to get into the win column last night and played a tightly contested game for the majority of the night.
During a back-and-forth first quarter, Tooele kept up with Grantsville and finished the period trailing 19-20. The second quarter went just as well, with both teams scoring 17 points to give the Cowboys a narrow 37-36 lead heading into the half.
Despite keeping within striking distance over the next two quarters, Grantsville’s consistent offense kept the Buffaloes from coming back and the Cowboys came away with a 74-66 victory.
With the loss, Tooele falls to 0-5 and with their victory the Cowboys improve to 5-0. The Buffaloes take to the road on Friday where they will face the Bonneville Lakers. Grantsville plays at home Friday, hosting the North Sanpete Hawks.
Both games begin at 7 p.m.
