Kicking off the 1A Aleutian Chain Girls Regionals with a nail bitter of a game where Sand Point trailed by the smallest of margins against the Manokotak Lady Lynx for the vast majority of the game and set the tone for a very exciting tournament. Unfortunately the Lady Eagles were unable to close the gap and, after running into some foul trouble, were unable to come away with a victory at the beginning of this tournament. The Sand Point Lady Eagles will continue their tournament run later this evening with a match from the loser’s bracket.
