Spartans Handle Lions, Thunder, Hoping To Do Same With Mavs
The Scobey Lady Spartans get another crack at the top-ranked Class C team in the state, the North Country Mavericks, when making the 406-mile roundtrip to Whitewater Friday, February 3.
The opening tip-off is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. (Radio: KCGM 95.7 FM).
In their first meeting on January 7 in Scobey the Spartans took a 17-7 lead through one quarter but it was just not big enough as the Mavericks were ahead 30-22 at halftime and 61-43 in the end.
The Spartans are back on their home court Saturday, February 4, against the Class B Glasgow Scotties, with the opening tip-off set for 4:30 p.m. If the rematch is anything like when they met in Glasgow January 6 it could be a tight one. On that January 6 evening Scobey was a 42-41 winner in one overtime.
The following week the Spartans close out the regular season as the visitors: at Frazer Tuesday the 7th (6 p.m.); at Nashua Friday the 10th (6 p.m.); at Wolf Point Saturday the 11th (5:30 p.m.).
Scobey takes a 6-game winning streak into this weekend’s action after defeating Lustre Christian in an away game and MonDak at home in last week’s play.
