Friday night’s championship basketball game against Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaa.at Kalé boys and Ketchikan High School was so good, they’ve decided to do it again. After an intense fourth quarter that bled into an even more intense overtime, Ketchikan just barely pulled ahead for a 72-64 finish.
The two teams will now face off for one last time on Saturday at 8:15 p.m. to see who will advance to year’s ASAA March Madness Alaska State competition on March 22-25 in Anchorage at the Alaska Airlines Center.
JDHS senior Orion Dybdahl and junior Sean Oliver shared the lead in scores for a total of 18 points and Ketchikan’s Marcus Stockhausen had 28 points with Joeben Lorenzo not far behind with 21.
