CUMBERLAND, Md. - During the regular season, Williamsport's boys' basketball team could win by accomplishing just two out of three team goals.
But that didn't work Wednesday night, as Westmar upset the Wildcats, 39-34, in the Class 1A West region semifinals at Allegany High School.
The loss snapped Williamsport's 18-game winning streak.
"I felt like there were three things we needed to do to win," a disappointed Wildcats coach Kevin Murphy said. "First, we needed to take away the easy hoops, and I think we did that. Second, we needed to play good defense, and I think we did that, too. Third, we had to box out and do a good job on the boards, and that's the one thing we didn't do. (Westmar) kept the ball alive, and seemed to come up with the loose balls. And there were a lot of loose balls."
