KNOX, Pa. – Do to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to make a change to our Friday night broadcast schedule. We will still be broadcasting the Keystone at North Clarion girls game starting at 5:30 p.m. with the pre-game show. But the boys’ game with North Clarion traveling to Keystone will not be able to be broadcast. We apologize for any inconvience.

Fans can listen to the game live on exploreClarion.com or by downloading our app for Apple and Android, with the Kerle Tire Pre-Game Show for the girls game starting at 5:30 p.m. and game time at 6 p.m. with Dustin Kifer and Bob “The Governor” Dunkle on the call. Immediately following that game, we will join Mike Kalinowski for the call of the boys’ game from North Clarion.
The girls game features two teams that have had a pair of classic games the last two times they have met.
Last year, North Clarion defeated Keystone in double overtime at North Clarion, 61-59, and then when no one thought that game could be topped the two hooked up in another double overtime thriller three weeks ago, Dec. 22, with Lindsay Zacherl’s layup as time expired in double overtime giving the She-Wolves a 49-47 win.
North Clarion enters the game unbeaten at 11-0, while Keystone is in desperate need of getting some momentum going sitting at 4-7 but without a really bad loss on its resume. Both teams are coming off victories earlier in the week with North Clarion rallying past Karns City for a 41-36 win Wednesday night after Keystone withstood foul trouble to get a form of revenge on Cranberry with a 47-41 win Tuesday. North Clarion junior Tori Obenrader enters the game just 26 points shy of 1,000 in her career.
