Kettle Falls will now play Reardan…
Matthew Thompson dropped 27 in Kettle Falls second round matchup with Colfax Tuesday in the District 7 2B tournament, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Bulldogs on the winning track as they fell to the Bulldogs 72-57.
Kettle Falls kept it close for most of the game despite falling behind by six in the first quarter. A solid second and third periods prevented the Bulldogs from gaining much ground on the Bulldogs allowing Kettle Falls to stay in striking distance in the fourth. However, another run by Colfax in the final frame sealed the game and sent Kettle Falls to the consolation bracket.
Cade McKern pitched in 15 for the Bulldogs to help lead the team.
The loss sends Kettle Falls to a loser out matchup with Reardan Feb. 15 at 3:30 p.m. at West Valley High School in Spokane.
