Huskies Begin Post Season

Huskies, others aim for titles
February 20, 2013, Lewistown Sentinel
LEWISTOWN?-?Thursday marks the beginning of the District 6 Class AAAA playoffs for the fourth-seeded Mifflin County boys basketball team as it will travel to Tyrone to take on the fifth-seeded Golden Tigers of Hollidaysburg.
It's the first of two - possibly three - games featuring Husky teams this week. The girls take on Hollidaysburg Saturday; the boys will be there as well with a win in their first one.
Mifflin County girls
The fourth-seeded Mifflin County girls will start their quest for a District 6 Class AAAA title Saturday at Bald Eagle Area against the top-seeded Hollidaysburg Golden Tigers, a tall order for the girls who clinched the playoff berth by finishing the season with a .500 record overall, in their first year as a member of the powerful Mid-Penn Conference.
The rematch comes 29 days after a one-sided opening round, a 42-point loss sustained by the Huskies, who coach Kevin Kodish says, are playing a lot better basketball as of late.
"The intensity level has picked up and the last few weeks we've been practicing a lot better and playing a lot better," Kodish said.
As far as Hollidaysburg, Kodish was not short on praise, knowing the challenge that lies ahead.
"They do everything well and they're a very good team. We played them about a month ago and they beat us badly - that was our worst game of the year," Kodish said.
The Huskies will attempt to neutralize the Golden Tiger attack with hopes of improving on what Hollidaysburg exploited in the 42-point loss in late January.
Mifflin County finished its season with two convincing wins but playoff basketball is a different animal and so is Hollidaysburg. Kodish is optimistic and confident his team can pull of the upset victory.
"We're looking forward to the challenge and we're anxious to get another crack at it," he said.
