The Alliance Bulldogs girls and basketball teams have their final basketball doubleheader games this weekend, starting tonight (Friday) at Dundy-County-Stratton and then at Lexington on Saturday.

The Bulldogs girls are currently in the chase for one of the final seeds in the Class B District Finals. Alliance is 7-14 and with a pair of wins this weekend could set themselves up for a run to the District Final if they have a good showing at the Sub-District round. They take on a D-C-S team that one of the better small school teams in Southern Nebraska who at 11-11 had a two-game winning streak snapped in a loss to 23-1 Southern Valley.

On the boys side, the Tigers are 17-5 while Alliance is 5-15. The Bulldogs have played a brutal schedule, but are hoping for a strong showing this weekend against both Dundy-County-Stratton and Lexington.

Coverage is set for 5:30 pm MT on Friday with the girls game and boys to follow. On Saturday, girls are scheduled for 1:30 with boys to follow. Listen live on KCOW 1400 AM and 92.5 FM. or online worldwide at kcowradio.com
