The Big Sandy girls rebounded from a tough loss to North Star Thursday night, and will still have a chance to move on from the 9C tournament. Friday night, big Sandy knocked Hays-Lodge Pole out of the tournament with a 53-41 loser-out win. Mateila Cline scored 17 points for the Pioneers, who will play Box Elder in Saturday's consolation game.
The HLP boys will also play Saturday in the consolation game against Chinook. The T-Birds turned away Turner 73-53 Friday night in a game which was much closer than the final score showed. Bret VanValkenburg scored 25 points in the final game of the season for Turner, while Jalen Brockie posted 18 points and 13 rebounds for the T-Birds.
Saturday's girls consolation game is set for 12 p.m. at the HHS gymnasium. The boys consolation game is slated for 1:30. The girls championship game, featuring Chinook and North Star will tip at 6 p.m., while the boys finale, with Big Sandy and Box Elder, will get under way at 7:30.
