The Little Hawkeye Conference has an intriguing match-up on this Friday night, as Pella Christian rolls into Oskaloosa for a girl-boy doubleheader. Although Oskaloosa’s conference title hopes may be dead, they proved they weren’t taking things lightly. Oskaloosa went in to Pella High School last week and surprised the Little Dutch with a 51-47 victory.
Now, Oskaloosa will play the other Little Hawkeye conference leader, the Eagles. Pella Christian enters the game with a 13-3 record this year, and are tied with Pella atop the conference (8-2). Pella hosts Grinnell tonight. The Eagles have a chance to sweep the season series with Oskaloosa, after a narrow win in game one on January 20th (58-57).
The Pella Christian girls (12-3) are still hoping for a conference title of their own with a record of 8-2 entering the game. Only Pella and South Tama are ahead of the Lady Eagles. They’ll be looking to sweep the season series with Oskaloosa. The first time around, the Lady Eagles rolled to a 67-39 victory.
