Over the weekend, the Su-Valley Rams boys team lost two very close home games against Effie Kokrine Charter School.
On Friday, the Rams jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter, only to have it erased in the second. From there, the teams remained very close, with Effie Kokrine ultimately winning 51 to 49. Dawson Matthews led the rams with 30 points and six rebounds. Sophomore Marshall Pinard also pulled in six rebounds in Friday’s game.
On Saturday, Su-Valley trailed by fifteen points entering the fourth quarter, then mounted a strong rally, but it wasn’t quite enough. Effie Kokrine Charter won the game 62 to 59. Dawson Matthews and Tyran Waterhouse led the Rams with 20 and 18 points, respectively.
This weekend, the Su-Valley boys and girls will play host to the regional tournament, which will end the regular season and determine which teams move on to state. Su-Valley is currently four games behind Interior Region leader Glennallen.
