Lions Save Best For Last; Win 1B Opener

Langford Area’s boys basketball team has been playing some of its best basketball down the home stretch of the season, and that continued in the first round of the Region 1B tournament on Monday.

Coach Paul Raasch’s crew took charge in the fourth quarter to derail Wilmot 62-50 in Webster to earn a shot at Aberdeen Christian, the state’s top-ranked team, last night Tuesday. Results of that contest were not available at press time but the winner will play in a semifinal contest at the Aberdeen Civic Arena at 6 p.m. on Friday.

The Lions also ended regular season play on Friday with a solid 60-56 victory over Waverly-South Shore.
