(Elk Horn) The Exira-EHK Spartans start off the Class 1A regional tourney Thursday night with a home game against Boyer Valley.
Coach Tom Petersen says the team is playing well defensively heading into the most crucial part of the season. Exira-EHK has won 4 out of 5 games heading into the tournament and they’ve held back-to-back opponents under 30 points.
Exira-EHK comes in at 16-5 while Boyer Valley is 7-15, but Spartan coach Petersen says the disparity in the two teams win loss record may be deceiving. He notes that Boyer Valley plays in a very difficult Western Valley Conference.
The winner of that matchup between Exira-EHK and Boyer Valley moves on to oppose West Harrison or Heartland Christian in Elk Horn on Tuesday.
