Tigers fall to eventual state champs

The Tigers take a breather on the bench during their first round game against St. John on Thursday at the 2A state basketball tournament in Manhattan.

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.

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.

They lengthened their lead by three more points after three, forcing Hanover to almost double Centralia’s point tally in the fourth. Hanover scored 15 to Centralia’s eight to force overtime.
