The Philip Lady Scotties faced off against long-time rivals the Kadoka Kougars in the second game of district tournament.

The evening before was a drain on energy and emotion, with an overtime win against the New Underwood Tigers. The Scotties still came out strong in the second game and scored the first four points. They also almost doubled the Kougars’ score at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter was a catch-up time for Kadoka.
