Watford City cruises past Parshall for Region 8 Title

Watford City – The Watford City Wolves will be returning to the State Tournament once again after a convincing 61-36 victory over the Parshall Braves.

The Wolves were able bottle up the Braves offense with relentless pressure up and down the court. The Braves also struggled from deep (0-9 on 3-point attempts), making their comeback attempt even more difficult.

Mackenzie Sparby was named Region 8 Senior Athlete of the year, she poured in a game high 17 points and also grabbed a game high 16 rebounds to lead the Wolves.

Junior Sidney Hall led the Braves with 9 points.

The Wolves finished in 2nd place in last year’s North Dakota Class B State Tournament. The State Tournament will kick off next Thursday.
