Dietrich 48, Castleford 35

SHOSHONE—#5 Dietrich led for nearly the entire game over #1 Castleford, and knocked the Wolves to the loser’s bracket of North Side Conference Tournament. Castleford battled back after falling down 13-5 in the first quarter, but the Blue Devils opened up their lead in the fourth quarter and put the game out of reach.

“We worked all year for districts, so it feels good to get this win. Castleford is such a smart team on defense, so we had to take care of the ball,” said Dietrich junior Quincie Christiansen, who finished with a game-high 13 points.

“We couldn’t buy a basket in the first half,” said Castleford head coach Gary Reynolds. “Getting a bye in the first round, I think there were some first-game jitters from our girls. We just had a lid on the basket.” The Wolves struggled shooting from all over, including the free throw line, where they shot 2-12 on the night.

Dietrich will play Carey on Wednesday, February 8 at Shoshone High School with the district championship on the line. Castleford moves to the losers bracket, where they will play Richfield at 6 pm on Tuesday, February 7, with both teams facing elimination.
