Hometown Hoops: Girls District Finals fuels Friday night frenzy
Our Hometown Hoops Game of the Week featured 22-0 Sandusky and 20-2 Resse for the district title. Reese came into the game still stinging from the lst time the two teams met when Sandusky beat them by 15 points. It wasn't as bad but the Redskins make it a clean sweep as they win it 47-35.
