The Bonney Lake High boys lost three basketball games last week, but played a solid game against Clover Park at home Saturday.

The Panthers lost to Clover Park 56-44. Bonney Lake went down 16-7 at the end of the first frame, but went on a 17-10 tear in the second to come with two at the half. In the third, Clover Park took the advantage 19-9.

“The kids worked very hard,” coach John Hofstrand said. “We had a good first half.”
