The Trenton boys took on one of the top teams in the state in Class 2, and went toe-to-toe with the West Platte Blue Jays before fading late, with the Jays claiming a 74-64 win. Trenton had the lead for the majority of the night, but wilted late, with West Platte outscoring the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter, 26-13. Trenton had trouble slowing down West Platte's massive one-two punch of Adam Roe and Bryce Cashman, with Roe scoring 31 points, and Cashman adding 22. Trenton, in falling to 9-6 on the season, was led by Chris Flowers with 15 points, Chase Tolson with 13, and Cree Mullenix with 10. Mullenix appeared to avoid a serious knee injury in the second quarter, after a collision with Roe. Mullenix would limp to the locker room late in the quarter, with an ice pack on his knee, but was able to play in the second half. Trenton will play the Richmond Spartans for third place in the Lawson Tournament, Saturday night at 5 o'clock.

The Trenton Lady Bulldogs had a close, defensive duel with the KCI Conference's North Platte Lady Panthers, and in a game that never saw a lead of more than six points for either side, North Platte's Courtney Kipping hit her fourth three-point shot at the buzzer, lifting the Lady Panthers to a 49-46 win, dropping Trenton to 11-4 on the season.

Trenton found difficulties in solving North Platte's defense, with the #2 seeded Lady Panthers forcing a large amount of steals and turnovers with a swarming, double-team strategy. McKinley Hurley scored 12 points and Cassidy Cotton 10 for Trenton. Makaila Capeder had nine points, including a game-tying three-point shot with six seconds remaining in regulation. For North Platte, Chelsi Sams had a game-high 18 points, with Kipping adding 15.

The Thursday night semifinals from Lawson opened with an upset, as the fifth-seeded Penney Lady Hornets frustrated #1 seed Lawson, beating the Lady Cardinals by a final score of 45-34. Morgan Prather had 15 points, Shelby Kruse 13, and Molly Ward 10 for Hamilton. Kerstin Huffman led Lawson with 15. Lawson's girls will look to bounce back on Friday night, hosting the Trenton Lady Bulldogs in the third place game at 8 o'clock. Friday night's consolation finals from Lawson will be the Gallatin girls against Richmond at 5 o'clock, and the Gallatin boys against North Platte at 6:30.

The Lawson boys downed Richmond in a late night semifinal at LHS, with the final score reading 47-37. Cole Shobe and Spencer Wood both had 11 points for the Cardinals, with Reid Summers tallying 23 points for the Spartans.

Saturday's schedule from Lawson High School has the Richmond vs. Trenton boy's third place game at 5 o'clock, Hamilton against North Platte in the girl's title tilt at 6:30, and Lawson battling West Platte in the boy's title game at 8 o'clock. It will be the second meeting of the season for the KCI rivals, with West Platte slipping by Lawson in December in the championship game of the KCI Conference Tournament.
