The Final Countdown

This week I chose the song "The Final Countdown" by Europe. I chose this 80s hit because the winter sports season is hitting the final stretch and spring will soon be sprung (hopefully).

This past week I covered a Jacks hockey game against rival Minot State.

Then I began a two-day journey down to Bismarck to the West Region Hockey Tournament. Thursday evening, a game which I did not attend, Bottineau was upset 6-5 by Mandan in miraculous fashion. On day two the Braves were able to down Hazen-Beulah 6-2. That evening I stayed in Hazen and caught up with relatives and had a wonderful supper.

Saturday morning I scooted back off to Bismarck and watched as the Braves state hopes were dashed by Bismarck High 6-4.

There is still lots going on this upcoming week. I have boy's region basketball, 19U hockey and Bottineau the Winter Park ski team to cover.

Here are my pictures from the week, mostly from the region tourney in Bismarck:
