Parshall headed to the Region finals


By Jerry W. Kram
It looked like the top seeded New Town Eagles were headed to another Regional Championship showdown with the Watford City Wolves, but the Parshall Braves had something else in mind in the semifinals of the Region 8 Girls Basketball Tournament held in Watford City. The Eagles jumped out to an early lead, but Parshall dominated for three and a half quarters to steamroll the Eagles 72-50.
“Third time’s a charm,” said Braves Head Coach Dusty Olson. “Our girls worked hard all week. They needed this win, not just for the fans but for themselves.”
“Tonight, we didn’t execute the way we had in the past,” said Eagles Head Coach Damon Brady. “I don’t know how many layups we missed. We didn’t finish. We missed a lot of free throws. You’re not going to win a lot of ball games doing that.”
The Braves victory will send them to the Region Championship against the Wolves Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Watford City beat the Powers Lake Ranchers handily, 59-29 to secure their berth in the final.
