Boys Varsity Basketball · WINFIELD LEADS SCORING AS KING DEFEATS NORCO


April 29, 2021

NORCO:  “This was a tough game offensively” said King assistant coach Mark Vanta.  Surprising words coming from the coach of the victorious Wolves who beat Norco High on Thursday by a comfortable margin, 53-44. 

Norco, for whatever reason, is a tough place to play according to Vanta.  The scored was practically deadlocked at the half, 21-20.

But behind the scoring prowess of Jaden Winfield who knocked down 21 and Sean Rowland who added in 12 of his own, King battled in the second half and found some rhythm.

“I think we were able to wear them down” Vanta said and the team pulled away in the fourth quarter.

“It’s not always going to be easy” Vanta added, “you gotta work for it.”

King stands at 5-2 in league.
