Trojans and Bears Have Playoff Battle


2-19-2014 Tri-County 46, English Valleys 32  •  2-21-2014 Tri-County 41, Meskwaki 77

A 77-41 defeat to a four-loss Meskwaki team ended a fun-filled Tri-County boys’ season that saw some ‘ups’ and some ‘downs’, but many more ‘ups’ than the Trojans have gotten used to the past few seasons.

One of the most memorable moments of the season happened last Wednesday in the first round of Class 1A District play. TC’s 46-32 win over English Valleys marked the Trojans’ first postseason win in some time and made the season that much more successful.

Tri-County’s stingy defense was the primary factor in the win over EV. The Bears were limited to just four points in each of the first two period, as the Trojans took a commanding 23-8 lead into the locker room at the half. As a team, Tri-County amassed 12 steals and six blocks; four by Trenton Steinke and two by Nick Watts.
