The girls basketball season is slowly coming to a I’m writing his week’s column early as I am heading out on Feb. 14 for Fosston, Minn., and then to Fargo for the state wrestling tournament. Unfortunately I will miss the Region 4 individual tourney at Ft. Yates. I’m visiting my sister, Bonnie Viken, and take in a couple of basketball games to watch my great niece and nephew play. Kelly Viken coaches the girls team and he has a daughter who starts on the girls team and is a senior. Les Viken, Fosston’s head football coach, has a son and starts for the boys team and is also a senior.
Here is one wrestling fan’s prediction on the Class B dual tourney at Fargo. I got it off the Dakota Grappler web site. He is obviously a Region 3 fan.
Carrington over Beulah
Oakes over Bishop Ryan (BR) (closest dual of the
Pembina Co. North (PCN) over Hettinger
Napoleon over Velva
Carrington over Oakes
PCN over Napoleon (gotta have an upset some
BR over Beulah
Hettinger over Velva (closest dual of the tourna
Carrington over PCN
Napoleon over Oakes
BR over Hettinger (because I’m a homer)
Velva over Beulah (because I’m a region 3 homer)
I was surprised to see that Lemmon defeated Flasher 67-56 on Feb. 12. Both teams came into the game with winning records, Lemmon (9-6) and Flasher (10-5). But none of Lemmon’s victories came against an opponent with a winning record, while Flasher had defeated Shiloh. Shiloh has been in the North Dakota Class B top 10 poll off and on this year.
The Nighthawk varsity girls had a good game at Mandaree on Feb. 12 as they notched a 48-27 win. Casey Joppa paced them in scoring with 16 followed by Kinsey Jahner and Lizzy Thompson with seven each. Jahner also had a leading six rebounds. Good luck to the girls in their regional play-in game on Feb. 20. Location and opponent unsure of at this time.
Hettinger-Scranton’s sports schedule for the coming week is as follows:
20 Feb. 20, Girls varsity regional play-in game
Feb. 23-24 & 26, Girls Regional tournament at Trin
Feb. 27, Boys varsity basketball at Beach
See you at the games.
