It was not a good start to the Bluegrass Conference Tournament for our local teams. Melcher-Dallas girls just days after beating Ankeny Christian fell to the Eagles Saturday night 46-37. Emilie Krpan scored 12 points. The Saints will now play in the consolation round against arch-rival Twin Cedars on Tuesday. The Saber girls also lost to Moulton-Udell 39-29. On the boys side, Twin Cedars fell to Diagonal 50-to-41. The Sabers found themselves down 19-4 after one quarter and took the lead with just two minutes to play, but according to Coach Troy Pearson just could not finish. Nick Haselhuhn scored 16 points. Twin Cedars will host Iowa Christian on Monday in the consolation round.
