In a match that featured 25 ties, and numerous lead changes, the Faulkton Area Trojans pulled out a 25-22, 13-25, 25-23, 16-25, 15-12 victory over the Sully Buttes Chargers in the Region 2B semi final game Thursday night in Onida.
The raucous gym was treated to an intense, defensive effort by both squads– the second seeded Chargers and the third seeded Trojans. The victorious Faulkton Area team will now advance to the field of sixteen, and play next week against a matched opponent that corresponds with the power points the teams have accumulated during the season.
