Tonight’s first round of Regional basketball between the CSS Kodiaks (14-8) and the Heritage Christian Eagles (21-1) will be live streamed at 6:30 p.m. on You Tube. Click here and look for CSS vs. Heritage Christian basketball. A victory in tonight’s matchup puts the Kodiaks in the championship game on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Region 6 site, Dawson School, in Lafayette, CO.
The Eagles only loss came in the District championship game last Saturday against Mile High Conference foe, Dawson, who Heritage Christian beat earlier in the season. If the two teams can get past this first round tonight, it would be a repeat championship game to determine a berth at state.
Heritage Christian is led by 6’3″ junior E. Johnson who is averaging 14 ppg along with 12 rpg. She is surrounded by a squad of accurate shooters in S. Collins (SR), K. Siemers (FR), C. Lacey (JR), and G. Erikson (SR).
Look for a healthy matchup between 6’1″ Bailey R. from CSS and Johnson, along with scrappy guard play from the Kodiaks. If CSS can contain the Eagles center and defend the 3-point shot tonight, the #22 Kodiaks will pull an upset of #11 Heritage Christian. The depth of the CSS bench could also prove to be a factor in tonight’s contest. Go Kodiaks!
