Oakesdale freshman Jessie Reed takes it to the hoop for two against Garfield-Palouse Friday.

The Southeast 1B powers will meet a second time.

Playing at Pomeroy Friday night, Oakesdale will go against the unbeaten Pirates, whom they lost to 43-40 at home Dec. 20.

With five league games remaining, Oakesdale (11-3, 5-1) and Pomeroy (13-0, 6-0) in first and second place, this could decide the regular season league title.

"Play relentless defense and play team basketball," said Nighthawks Coach Heidi Perry of her team's directive.

How will they handle Pomeroy's Maddy Dixon inside?

"With somebody like that, it's gonna be a team effort," said Perry.

Game time is 6 p.m.
