The #8 ranked Class 5A Wildcats’ basketball team fell way behind #14 ranked Class 6A Wylie and was never able to catch up in a 54-41 loss in a Gold Bracket semifinal game in the Forney ISD Winter Classic at North Forney High School Friday (December 7). The Pirates jumped out to a 16-1 lead against the Wildcats. Wildcats Coach Clark Cipoletta said the Wildcats dug ourselves into a big hole early with a lot of turnovers.
