McCOOK, Neb. — The titanic collision’s all set as nine Dundy County-Stratton Tigers hit shots in a 61-21 playoff triumph over Southwest Tuesday night.

The No. 1-seed Tigers (17-4 record) showed great focus during this C2-10 subdistrict semifinal.

They held No. 4 Southwest to eight first-half points and only 13 points through three quarters.

Meanwhile, junior posts Adalene Krutsinger and Grace Frederick teamed for 19 points while pacing a balanced Tiger offense.

All this means something has to give Thursday night at the Peter & Dolores Graff Events Center.

No. 2 Cambridge (18-5) and No. 1 DC-S (17-4) will tangle in this C2-10 championship game.

Only one team will continue on to another potential state tournament spot.

Both reached Lincoln the last two years with those Tigers playing for last year’s D-1 state title.

The Tigers moved into C-2 this season which set up what everyone expected would be a fantastic subdistrict showdown.

Cambridge also snapped a long Tiger home-court winning streak last month.

DC-S (61) — Adalene Krutsinger 11 points, Maggie Lutz 9, Grace Frederick 8, Jessie Freeland 7, Allie Behlke 6, Sable Lambley 5, McKinzie Baney 6, Kelcie Burke 4, Sydney Reichert 4. Three-pointers: Behlke 2, Lutz, Freeland.

SOUTHWEST (21) — Nicole Dewey 9 points, Bailee Springer 6, Ashley Kragelund 2, Jadyn Brooks 2, Cierra Clements 2.
