This past Saturday saw the season debut of high school basketball for several teams, as two marquee match-ups between Oregon and Washington teams were held at the Moda Center in the Border Battle presented by Pure Focus Sports. Mount Si (Snoqualmie, WA) and Churchill (Eugene, OR) went to head to head, as the WIAA 4A Finalists took on this season’s OSAA 5A favorite. The blend of size, talent, and physicality of Mt. Si was too much for the Lancers initially, however, the guard tandem of Silas Bennion and Samaje Morgan was just too much to handle for them. Churchill and company ends up taking the game 55-47.
