 As the district tournaments are underway, teams are attempting to plan their road to the state tournament, this is where you start to see the squads be evenly matched and games come down to the wire. Let’s take a look at some District tourney action around the Idaho Falls Metro. 

West Side Dominate Bear Lake, Punches Ticket to State

West Side sparkled at home as they outscored the second-seeded Bears 36-13 during the middle two quarters to turn Thursday’s much-anticipated showdown into a blowout.

The two teams split during the regular season and Bear Lake limited West Side to 44 and 49 points, respectively. Bear Lake had no answer this time around as West Side won 70-46. The came lacked the competitive edge many expected and in most part it was because of the offensive execution by West Side. The squad continued to make the extra pass and it led to dominant night. 

It was another balanced effort offensively for the Pirates, who got points from 10 different players. Bryler ShurtliffBrylerShurtliff6'1" | SGWest Side | 2022StateID led the way with 19 points, followed by Blaize Brown with 17 and Ryan Lemmon with eight.
