The Ninilchik girls and boys basketball team took to the road for games this weekend.

The Ninilchik boys stopped at Wasilla Lake Christian for a Peninsula Conference game Wednesday, losing by three.

Both teams then played in the Susitna Valley Crowley Classic. The Ninilchik boys lost to Nenana in the opening round, then beat Aniak, then lost to Susitna Valley.

The Ninilchik girls lost to Nenana 34-26 in the opening round of the tournament, falling victim to cold shooting in the first half.

The Wolverines then pulled out three straight close victories, winning the three contests by a total of five points. Ninilchik started the run of close victories against Nenana. Then against Sand Point, the Wolverines missed some free throws and layups and it nearly cost them, as a Sand Point 3-pointer at the buzzer meant a one-point win for Ninilchik. Then against King Cove, the Wolverines led by six with a minute left but King Cove hit a pair of treys to tie the game. However, Ninilchik was able to hit a pair of 3s to ice the game.
