Today (2/12): Navigator Girls Open Districts; Blazers Face Abes in Regular Season Finale
2B District IV playoffs (double-elimination)
Northwest Christian vs. Adna – Rochester HS – 6:30 PM
High school basketball playoffs get underway today when the Northwest Christian girls travel to Rochester to take on Adna in a 2B District IV playoff game at 6:30. The Navigators finished the regular season at 5-7 in the 2B Pacific while Adna went 10-5 in the 2B Central. The winner will face Willapa Valley on Saturday while the loser will have to wait until Monday to play again.
The game can be heard live on the Eli Sports Network.
Timberline vs. Lincoln – Timberline HS – 7:00 PM
With Donaven Dorsey back for the Blazers, tonight’s game against Lincoln should be an interesting test to see where this Timberline team is going into the postseason and an important game for seeding into districts.
The Blazers sit at 7-4 in the 3A Narrows, a game ahead of Foss for the #3 seed. The Falcons are 6-5 and likely will beat Mount Tahoma tonight. A Foss win and a Timberline loss would set up a tiebreaker between the two schools on Friday night at Stadium for the #3 seed to districts. If the Blazers beat Lincoln, they would claim the #3 seed and avoid the tiebreaker game on Friday.
Lincoln brings a super talented team to town that are 10-1 in the Narrows and added Cal commit Ahmad Rorie back to their program when he won an appeal to play after leaving Montverde Academy in Florida. The two teams met on January 17th and the Abes down the Blazers 65-38 on their home court.
