Wamogo gave Lewis Mills all it could handle in the opening round of the Litchfield Hills Holiday Classic on Thursday.
The host Warriors hung with Mills from start to finish in 46-37 loss. They'll play in the tournament's consolation game Saturday at 4 p.m.
"As a team, we have to be aware of how well we can play and what we're capable of," a pleased Wamogo coach Kerri Stolle said afterwards. "Mills is one of the best team in the league and we stayed with them."
Stolle cited the play of Cassidy Wilson (19 points) and Lexi Weik, who handled the ball against relentless pressure by Mills. Wamogo is 2-3.
