MANHATTAN – The Washington County boys took a surprise early lead on the top-seeded St. John Hudson Tigers during the first round of the 2A state basketball tournament on Thursday in Manhattan. Zach Otott scored twice and Kyle McGatlin made a shot on a drive where he was fouled and converted the free throw to go up 7-2. But St. John’s #1 seed was valid and they quickly came back to tie the game on a made 3-pointer followed by a block and another basket.

SOLOMON – Going into their sixth sub-state championship game in the last seven years, Washington County Head Coach Scott Romeiser said his team had a quiet calmness about them. Despite the history of these games, he said the team was confident they could play with Ell-Saline in Saturday’s championship game in Solomon. Unfortunately, the Tigers didn’t start out showing that confidence after the tipoff, according to Romeiser. They missed several shots early, had a couple turnovers and let Ell-Saline grab a 4-0 lead.

STATE-BOUND!

Clifton-Clyde team members celebrate after winning the sub-state championship game over Osborne in come-from-behind fashion.

BY DAN THALMANN/ Publisher.
 
The Clifton-Clyde boys were on the doorstep to a state basketball tournament berth on Saturday in Lincoln, but they saw a familiar foe in their way. Clifton-Clyde was facing off against Osborne, the team that stopped them from qualifying for the 8-man Division 1 state championship game last fall by the narrowest of margins (Osborne went on to win the state football title.) Osborne got off to a quick lead in the game. They went up 15-9 after the fi rst quarter. The Eagles picked up the scoring pace in the second quarter, but Osborne wasn’t letting up, matching Clifton-Clyde’s 14 points to hold onto a 29-23 lead at half.
