The anticipated game of the weekend came to fruition between Yorktown Wildcats and Nordheim Pirates after the two teams respectively defeated their opponents to face one another for the Nordheim Tournament championship game Dec. 3-5.
Yorktown easily defeated their first opponent, the Runge Yellowjackets 51-26. Yorktown’s athleticism and strong defensive skills on rebounds prevented Runge from any second or third attempts at the basket.
Nordheim took care of Kenedy JV 56-20 allowing the team to score only 7 points in the first half before putting their second and third string players.
For the second bracket Yorktown secured the champion playoff spot defeating West Oso 35-24.
Nordheim also secured the chance for the championship game after defeating Victoria West freshman 56-34.
Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “Our guys really wanted this match up.”
