Redhawks Look To Stop The Beavers: HS Basketball – February 27
The Harper Creek Beavers make their way east to Marshall to battle the Redhawks tonight to wrap up Interstate 8 play.
A win tonight for the Beavers will lock up at least second place in the first-year league, with a chance to earn a co-championship spot with Jackson Lumen Christi if they fall to Pennfield tonight. The Beavers have recovered nicely following a tough loss to Lumen Christi 10 days ago, winning handily over Coldwater and Parma Western. They'll have one non-conference tune-up before district play March 9th, when they open with Marshall at home.
The Redhawks have been challenged with injuries and tough competition this season, but the young squad is finally putting the pieces back together at the right time. Even though they have lost two straight, the Redhawks can compete with any team at any time. They sit in a fifth place tie with Pennfield and Parma Western and look to finish in fifth by themselves. Marshall will host state-ranked Otsego and travel to Portage Central next week before district action.
Here's the rest of tonight's schedule and scores from Thursday, including regular season finales in Girls Basketball.
Friday, February 27th
