Seward girls also advance in Disrict 3/3A

'Dawgs crush Hawks

Posted: Friday, March 16, 2001

The Nikiski Bulldogs proved that given enough room to maneuver they will become a dangerous opponent as they crushed the Houston Hawks Thursday in the two teams' opening game of the District 3/3A Tournament.

The Bulldogs blasted open the game against the Hawks as they dominated their way through a 53-36 victory.

The Bulldogs took a 25-12 first-half lead and never looked back as they pulled ahead and then away from their regular season rivals.

The win will give Nikiski a chance to march through the Grace Christian Grizzlies for a chance at the regional championship and a berth into the state tournament. The loss for Houston and any future loss for Nikiski besides the championship game means either team will not qualify for state.

The Bulldogs followed the lead of David Holloway, who poured in 30 points to lead the Nikiski squad into what will probably rank as one of their toughest games of the year. The Hawks were not able to propel a single player into double-digit scoring though nine players contributed in the losing effort.

Seward girls 46, Grace Christian 37

The Seward Seahawks girls basketball team showed the correct way to win a tournament game over the Grace Christian Grizzlies Thursday as they turned a close game into a nine-point cushion and a win.

The Seahawks used a balanced scoring attack and a well-rounded defense to pull out a win in their regional tournament opener.

The contest was locked 17-17 at the beginning of the second half and the Seahawks took control from there and didn't look back as they followed the scoring potential of Erin Carr, who netted 16 points off of three from the floor and 10-of-12 from the free-throw line, and the sure shooting of Paula Banic, who added 12 for the win.

The Grizzlies struggled to put points on the board and relied heavily on the scoring ability of K. C. Long, who poured in 19 points in the losing effort. Only four other Grizzlies put points on the board but none scored in double digits.

Seward will take on the Anchorage Christian Schools Lions today at 2:45 p.m. for a chance to bout it out in the regional championship game and a berth into the state tournament. Grace Christian, which is eliminated from the state tourney hunt with the loss, will face off against Su-Valley at 11 a.m. for a chance to climb into fourth place in District 3.
