West Allis Central boys basketball nipped by Arrowhead
Bulldogs slip back to 1-1 on the season
Although his team absorbed a tough 60-57 loss to Arrowhead on Saturday night, West Allis Central boys basketball head coach Dave Mlachnik found some bright spots.
"Some good things came out of it," said Mlachnik, whose team fell to 1-1 on the season. "We had some opportunities, but we were hurt when Ron Turkvan and Brandon Key both got into foul trouble. We will learn from these things and move on."
Central played the Warhawks to a 23-23 tie at the half and trailed by two at 38-36 after three quarters. The game remained close all the way, but Arrowhead took a four-point lead in the final minute.
With just half a second left, Central hit one of two at the line and Arrowhead was able to run out the remaining time.
Turkvan paced the Bulldogs with 16 points, while Jaquan Martin added 15 points, Keith Leavy eight points and Key six points.
The Bulldogs traveled to Kenosha Indian Trail on Dec. 3 and will play host to Destiny at 7 p.m. Dec. 6. Destiny has been a solid Division 4 program in recent years.
Central then visits perennial power Milwaukee Vincent at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10 before opening Greater Metro Conference play on Dec. 13 at home against Brookfield East.
