It was a busy week to start the season for the GFW Thunderbird girls basketball team, playing three games in a matter of four days. Unfortunately, all three were losses.
The week started on Monday with a 50-37 loss at home against Martin County West.
The T-Birds never led in the contest and were down by double digits midway through the first half. GFW battled back to within five points at halftime, trailing 30-25.
The second half was a low scoring affair with Martin County West outscoring GFW 20-12 in the final 18 minutes.
