Share

The Potter County Battlers continued their winning streak to 21-0 on Friday night and captured the District 6B boys’s basketball championship.
Although trailing by 11 points early in the game, they came back to defeat Herreid/Selby Area by a score of 60-49. It was the third meeting for the teams, and despite predictions from outsiders that H/SA had an edge, the Battlers stayed strong and headed into the Region 3B game against Sully Buttes on Tuesday in Aberdeen.

If the Battlers win on Tuesday, they will play in the State B tournament next week in Aberdeen.
