YUMA, Ariz. – For the first time this season, cross-town rivals Gila Ridge and Cibola would meet on the hardwood to help shape the upcoming race for the Gila Valley title for boys basketball in the weeks ahead.
The Raiders would get off to a hot start in the first half, almost doubling the Hawks in overall points before their rivals would rally in the second half.
But Cibola would wind up holding on with the 64 to 54 win. Round one goes to the Raiders. Both teams will meet again on Yuma’s east side later this month.
