The Del Norte girls’ varsity basketball team didn’t exactly open the 2020 calendar year they way they had envisioned, falling to the Foothill Cougars of Palo Cedro 51-41 in the opening round of the Lady Hornet Classic hosted by Enterprise High School in Redding Thursday afternoon.

The Warriors found themselves attempting to play catch up throughout most of the contest, trailing 21-15 at halftime and 33-27 heading into the final quarter, but were unable to come any closer.  Jadence Clifton led the Warriors with 28 points, however the rest of the lineup combined for just 13 points on the evening.

The Warriors will face either Gridley or Willows in a consolation bracket contest Friday, with tip-off scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
