WOODWARD â€“ Just two wins from state Goodwell faced off against Fargo in hopes to get to go to Oklahoma City. What was only a five-point game at the end of the first quarter slowly turned into a double-digit loss for the Eagles. The final game of the Goodwell season would end Friday afternoon 60-37.
After a big win Thursday night against Shattuck, Goodwell was faced with the challenge of beating Fargo and winning one more game in order to go to state. The Eagles fought hard against one of the top teams in the state, but fell short in the second half.
SEILING - After suffering a heartbreaking loss the night before it was a challenge for Hooker to see if they could come back and win in the consolation bracket against Depew Friday night. While things did not start out as smoothly as they might have hoped, the Bulldogs were able to come away with a solid 55-42 win.
In a game that started out slowly for Hooker they started out by only scoring nine points in the first quarter.
â€śItâ€™s tough coming off a big emotional loss from the night before. I thought we were kind of in quicksand a little bit early on,â€ť said Hooker coach Bud Valerius.
SEILING - After losing the first regional game Thursday night against Alva it would have been easy for Hooker to fall apart and lose their second game to end the season. They did not fall apart, but instead beat Oklahoma City Christian Heritage 47-44 on Saturday afternoon to advance themselves to area.
On Friday night Hooker defeated Depew in the 8 p.m. game to put them in the regional consolation championship. The next morning they turned around and drove right back to Seiling in the hope that they could continue their season.

GUYMON - Taking on the number six team in the state for the first playoff game was a tough challenge for the Lady Tigers last night. Despite hanging in the game for the first half, eventually Bishop-McGuiness was able to get the 51-29 win.
Guymon was not intimidated early on in the game last night. Bishop-McGuiness was able to come out flying in the first quarter, running a quick transition offense to their post player practically every time down the court.
WOODWARD - The Goodwell boys are fighting their way through Area in the consolation bracket. They were able to beat Shattuck last night 58-46 to continue their season another day.
It was a close game from beginning to end with Goodwell behind 10-11 after one and 17-19 at halftime. After halftime the Eagles had a huge 22 point third quarter to give them their first lead of the game. That lead would never be relinquished by Goodwell and they would hold on to win.
Despite lacking some height the Eagles post players did a good job of winning the rebounding battle.
