NEAT PACKAGE: TOURNAMENTS GET GOING
We are entering what maybe an unprecedented day in High School basketball history. Teams, not only in this area, but all over Northern California, are having a two game basketball day.
We have focused on the local tournaments, because frankly it is a little bit of an overwhelming assignment keeping track of everything. But at the very least the Montgomery Boys and Girls are both in tournaments out of the area, where they will be playing two games today. We will try to keep track of everything going on, but keep an eye on our Facebook page and we will update as many scores as we can. We will also try to make sense of everything that is happening at a later date. How later just depends how updated we can be kept up on the results.
In just the local action there are thirty games, twenty two boys and eight girls, in three different tournaments.
With all the problems these tournaments have had just to get going, there was only one forfeit last night. That was in the Rose City Tournament where Cardinal Newman got a first round forfeit win over Central Catholic, who didn’t show up. Apparently that wasn’t because of the weather, but that school also is still in the football season. The Central Catholic football team played in the Division 4 Nor Cal football championship game. That was good news for that school, as they moved to the CIF State Championship game with a 35-14 win over Capital Christian.
They are expected to be here today.
Here are the tournament results and the Saturday schedule.

I haven’t seen the bracket but a game with Folsom, the team that defeated Montgomery last week in the Championship game of the Peterich Viking Classic, might be looming…Piner is meeting Fortuna in the Consolation Game of the Arcata Tournament today…GIRLS…Montgomery rallied from ten down in the second half, only to lose on a buzzer beater to Alameda 53-50. That was a first round game of the Lady Hornet Invitational hosted by Alameda. Windsor is in the same tournament and lost to San Ramon 40-29…Both teams have two games today and could be meeting in the last round.
