WOODS CROSS – The winter moratorium was lifted for a few days last week, giving some teams the opportunity to play a game or two before taking another quick break for the New Year’s holiday.
Most of the local teams took advantage of that opportunity, and even more will be back on the floor, mat, swimming pool or ice rink Friday to start the tail end of the winter sports season.
In boys’ basketball, Woods Cross, Viewmont and Davis will all be back on the floor Friday as they take on Copper Hills, Lone Peak and Jordan, respectively.
Both the Wildcats and Vikings will travel, and the Darts will be at home when they face the Beetdiggers.
The Bountiful, Davis, Viewmont and Woods Cross girls’ basketball teams will all be back on the floor as well on Friday as they take on Clearfield, Syracuse, Weber and East, respectively.
Bountiful and Woods Cross will be at home, and Viewmont and Davis will travel to face their respective opponents.
