KIMBERLY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The first round of girls district basketball is underway and when it comes to the playoffs, no one is safe.
Buhl who never beat a conference opponent during the regular season, shocked the No. 1 seed Gooding on the road Monday night, 42-32. Emily Gorrell helped greatly with her game-high 20 points. Grace Parker had 14 in the losing effort.
Over in Kimberly, the No. 2 Bulldogs welcomed in the No. 3 Filer Wildcats. The Bulldogs struggled mightily from the floor, shots that looked like would go in, rimmed out and ball control proved to be a major issue.
Kimberly almost went scoreless in the second quarter, until they scored six points with a minute and a half left in the first half.
Filer led 20-13 at halftime and prevailed, sneaking by Kimberly 39-34.
Kynlee Thornton and Haven Jones both had 8 points in the win, Josie Schmitz had a game-high 13 points in the loss.
The Bulldogs face the Senators on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in a loser-out contest, while the Wildcats take on the Indians in the semi-final to follow. Both games move to CSI.
Murtaugh 52, Shoshone 40
Hansen 67, Twin Falls Christian Academy 39: Paxton Stimpson recorded a game-high 24 points and Jonathan Camarillo added 20 in the rout. Leading the Warriors in the loss, Evan Walker and Nathaniel Roberson with 13, while Joel Thompson chipped in 10.
