With Playoffs Set, Pella’s Focus Turns to Norwalk

Now with the peace of mind of knowing who their first round postseason opponents will be, the Pella High basketball teams will hit the road for a conference basketball test at Norwalk this evening. The last time the girls’ teams met up, the Warriors had an eleven-point fourth quarter lead vanish into a victory for the Lady Dutch in the waning seconds. The Pella girls were able to bounce back after a last second loss to Knoxville to beat Fairfield this past Saturday. It was an offensive struggle the first time the two boys’ teams met for Pella; the Little Dutch only were able to muster 35 points in a 55 – 35 loss. Also, Pella knows they’ll be travelling to Bondurant-Ferrar in the first round of their regional tournament. Coach Mark Core said that his team will need to have an all-around great game defensively to turn the tides on Norwalk. Pella enters play at 12 – 6 while the Warriors come in at 12 – 5, and you can stream the Little Hawkeye Conference doubleheader live on our website, kniakrls.com, with Cory Houser and Randy Sikkema calling the action. The pregame coverage begins at 6:00 p.m. and the girls will tip-off at 6:15. There will also be a delayed broadcast of both games immediately following Pella Christian-Knoxville’s doubleheader on 92.1 KRLS.
