EATONVILLE — Port Townsend lost to Eatonville for the third time this season, but the Redskins may yet get another chance to knock off the Cruisers.
Eatonville won Friday night’s Nisqually League Sub-District championship girls basketball game 47-39, the closest of the teams’ three meetings so far this season.
Port Townsend (18-6) plays the winner of Saturday night’s Orting-Steilacoom game at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in the opening round of the four-team double-elimination West Central District 2A Tournament.
Two of the four teams in the district tourney advance to state March 12-15 at the Yakima SunDome.
Eatonville (21-2) plays Saturday’s loser on Tuesday in the opening round of district. If Port Townsend and Eatonville both win Tuesday, they would meet again for the district title on Thursday.
All district games will be held at Curtis High School in University Place, a suburb of Tacoma.
