February 21, 2013Look, you know these games most likely won't get played tomorrow and I know these games likely won't get played tomorrow but I already did the work on the piece, so it's going on the Web...
Here is a look at the girls district finals scheduled (yeah right) for tomorrow night. Predicting these games for tomorrow night ranks with my belief in the Easter Bunny and what's left of the Republican Party...
C1-1 at Nebraska Wesleyan:
Louisville (11-12) v. Lincoln Christian (16-9). Louisville is a surprise team in reaching the district final and awaiting the Lions is state tournament veteran Lincoln Christian, which has been toughened by its usual brutal schedule. Winner: Lincoln Christian.
C1-2 at Midland University (Fremont).
Concordia (15-7) v. Wahoo (15-9). Two teams with great recent success collide. Wahoo was C-1 runner-up in both 2010 and 2011. Winner: Wahoo.
C1-3 at Aurora:
Fillmore Central (23-2) v. Sandy Creek (18-6). Here is where it gets scary for Fillmore; the Panthers have been Sandy Creek three times this season. Four is a mighty tall chore. Winner: Fillmore Central.
C1-4 at West Point:
Winnebago (15-8) v. Norfolk Catholic (14-9). Winnebago has enjoyed a great season and will attempt to make its second appearance at state, the only other coming in 1986. Norfolk Catholic, which upset Pierce to get here, beat Winnebago 66-56 back on Dec. 1. Winner: Norfolk Catholic.
C1-5 at Ord:
Kearney Catholic (23-2) v. Ainsworth (21-4). Kearney Catholic looks to follow up volleyball title with one in basketball and has won eight in a row. Winner: Kearney Catholic.
C1-6 at Sidney:
Gothenburg (15-10) v. Chadron (21-2). Underdog Gothenburg does own a win over Minden while Chadron is unbeaten in-state. Winner: Chadron.
Projected Wild Cards: No. 4 Minden and No. 5 Pierce, both of which lost in sub-district finals.
C2-1 at Friend:
Palmyra (14-10) v. Sutton (17-7). Sutton is a traditional power which plays a powerful schedule while Palmyra is hot, winners of eight of 10. Winner: Sutton.
C2-2 at Wahoo:
Yutan (18-6) v. Aquinas (19-4). Yutan, which has qualified just once (1997), has won nine in a row but Aquinas has won seven in a row and is coming off a 17-point win over 21-win Shelby-Rising City. Winner: Aquinas.
C2-3 at CCC-Columbus:
North Bend Central (19-5) v. Lutheran High Northeast (11-13). Lutheran High has pieced together some late season magic but note of NBC's five losses, the "worst" was to 19-4 Aquinas. Winner: North Bend Central.
C2-4 at Wayne:
Homer (23-2) v. Crofton (23-0). Homer has lost only to D-1 powers GACC and Pender while Crofton is the lone undefeated team in the state. Could be the loser of the this game is the second-best team in the class, too.
C2-5 at Kenesaw:
St. Cecilia (20-4) v. Wood River (12-15). Wood River has won four in a row and gets a nice plaque but St. Cecilia looks like a serious title contender, winners of 11 straight. Winner: St. Cecilia.
C2-6 at Chappell:
North Platte St. Pat's (21-3) v. Bridgeport (10-12). St. Pat's survived a double-overtime win against Hershey in the sub-district final while nine of Bridgeport's 11 losses are to C-1 or B teams. Winner: St. Pat's.
Projected Wild Cards: Hershey and Homer. Remember that thing I said about Homer...
