Girls basketball: Indians drop close game to Banks, play Astoria Monday

Scappoose and Astoria will battle Monday evening at 6 p.m.


The Indians fell 32-29 to No. 10 Banks on Friday night in the regular season finale, but a close loss aside, the Scappoose girls still have plenty to be positive about.

Firstly, the initial match up ended in a 44-24 loss. Scappoose led 8-1 after the first quarter of play on Feb. 20, but faded as the game wore on.

Secondly, there is still more basketball to be played. Scappoose finishes the season as the fourth seed from the high-powered Cowapa League, and will host Astoria on Monday evening at 6 p.m. in the first round of the Cowapa League playoffs.

The winner moves on to play Banks on Tuesday, Feb. 24, with the time to be announced on Feb. 21 by Banks High School.

Another upside: Scappoose swept Astoria this season, winning 37-24 on Jan. 27 and 46-41 on Feb. 13, and even a loss to Astoria on Monday might not keep the Indians out of the OSAA playoffs due to their current power ranking.
