     2016-01-01      By Staff Report    editor@geringcitizen.com
Sue Wengler/Special to the Citizen Gering’s Tyler Pszanka gets past a Gothenburg Swedes defender for an easy deuce. The Bulldogs headed into the title game versus Sidney on Wednesday. 
Gering defeated Wheatland 52-49 on Tuesday at the Sidney Holiday Tournament in Sidney, after defeating Gothenburg, 63-49 on Monday. The Bulldogs at 8-1 overall and 4-0 away will have played the host Sidney Red Raiders (9-0, 4-0 home) for the championship.

The Bulldogs only loss of the season came against Sidney on Dec. 4. The Raiders won that game 64-59. Gering has a home conference game versus Sidney on Feb. 5.

Meanwhile, Gering’s women’s hoops team downed Gothenburg 47-45 on Monday, and Wheatland 39-35 on Tuesday, and will have played Laramie on Wednesday.

Results for both Gering’s games were not available at press time.

Gering’s rival across the North Platte River, the Scottsbluff Bearcats (8-1) dumped Columbus 79-70 on Monday, and ran all over Kearney 72-47 on Tuesday. The Bearcats were scheduled to play Norfolk on Wednesday. The Bearcat women (3-4) didn’t fare as well with losses to both Columbus (50-34) and North Platte (58-45), but prevailed against Lexington 58-47 on Wednesday.

Down the road going west, the Mitchell Tigers fell to the Bridgeport Bulldogs, 72-22, and was scheduled to play Gordon-Rushville in Gordon on Wednesday. The Tiger women ended up on top against Bridgeport, 68-33, and were scheduled to play in the Alliance Tourney on Wednesday.

The Morrill Lions (1-6) didn’t play over the holiday weekend, but will be back in action versus Hay Springs on Jan. 4 (Monday). The Lion women (5-3), who were also idle over the weekend, will face Hay Springs on Monday as well.

Other local teams, the Minatare Indians men (4-0) and women (0-4) will face Creek Valley in Chappell on Jan. 9. The Bayard Tigers men (0-6) and women will play at Mitchell on Jan. 5. The Banner County men (0-6) and women (1-8) are scheduled to play at Hay Springs on Jan. 8.
