Spearfish (7-12) vs. Aberdeen Central (17-3), 6 p.m. at Golden Eagles Arena

Aberdeen Central will be a heavy favorite when the Golden Eagles host Spearfish in a Class AA girls’ SoDak 16 contest at 6 tonight at Golden Eagles Arena.

Central (17-3) has been rated among top five most of the year, including multiple weeks in the number one position late in the season. The Eagles, who won 14 games in a row to start the season, did stumble a bit late, but it was against the top teams in AA, including current number one Sioux Falls Washington.

Meanwhile, Spearfish (7-12) has just one win against teams in this year’s AA SoDak 16 field. That came against Sturgis, who the Spartans just lost to in their final game of the regular season. Spearfish will need to play its best game of the season to pull off the upset against the Eagles. Central defeated Spearfish 59-33 in the second game of the year on the Spartans’ home floor.
