The Lady Eagles face Kiefer at 1:30 p.m. today in another elimination game. Kiefer remained alive with a 53-33 victory against Gans.

A win today would land Afton in Saturday’s 6:30 p.m. game against either Okarche or Preston. Those two play tonight, with the winner moving on to next week’s state tournament in Oklahoma City.

Afton’s boys were eliminated with a 68-53 loss to Okarche.

Also on Thursday, the Welch boys were eliminated by Texhoma 50-37 in the Class A Area I tournament at the Chisholm Trail Expo Center in Enid.
