With only two games left in
the regular season, the Lions
still don’t control their own
destiny. Sisters barely escaped
Elmira and Junction City in
the fi rst round of league play,
but should they win again, the
Lions will need a tie breaker.
But Cottage Grove still has to
defeat Sutherlin, a team that
held the Lions to their lowest
scoring game before the Sis-

need to win both games against
Sutherlin and Junction City and
then hope that Sisters falls to El-

four defl ections on the night and
Child totaled three steals. Sierra
Blomquist also had three steals

Murphy, Blomquist and Kelty
all had two steals each along
with Gardner who had three
steals and two blocks.
Kelty led the team in scoring

Though in both games the Li-
ons failed to reach their goal of
out-rebounding their opponent
by at least 12, the defense made
up for the rebounding this week.
