Esko at Barnum
7:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 19

Esko may be the reigning Class 2A state champion, but Barnum is likely the favorite in this matchup.

The Eskomos are 4-1 but look like underdogs as they travel to take on the Bombers. Barnum is off to an impressive start, winning six consecutive games and earning the No. 3 ranking in Class 2A.

The Bombers won't need motivation to win the matchup. Esko was responsible for two of Barnum's three losses last season. The second came in the Section 7 championship game, where the Eskomos won 61-39 to advance to the state tournament.
