Dufur 48, Culver 35
In Dufur, the Culver girls basketball team just couldn't get anything going in a loss to the Rangers on Tuesday.
Culver head coach Scott Fritz said was just stagnant and sluggish, and that it was a game he would just rather toss to the wayside and start fresh when the team plays Crane at 5 p.m. Friday in the Culver Booster Club Invitational.
