Those who follow basketball know that when playoffs roll around and two very good, very competitive teams meet, it often becomes a game of seconds that can go either way in the blink of an eye. For the LHS girls basketball squad, reaching the State Championship Quarterfinals meant that they would find themselves in that exact situation... twice.

On Thursday, March 2, the #9 ranked Lady Honkers squared off against the #1 ranked Banks Braves at North Bend High School near Coos Bay and it was the type of contest that basketball fans love to see. The first quarter of action was about as close as you can get, with both the Honkers and the Braves proving without a doubt that they belonged in the post-season. Neither team gave even an inch to their opponent and after a hard-fought quarter of play the score was 11-10 in favor of the Braves. At this point, it was anyone’s game and the spectators and players alike surely knew that they were in for a war.
