Springdale 47, NW Christian 39

The Chargers advanced to the Northeast District B Tournament next week at Spokane Falls Community College by beating the Crusaders. Northwest Christian was eliminated.

That winner will meet Springdale at 8 p.m. Thursday at Colville for third and fourth seeding to district.

Although shooting just 30 percent from the field, the Chargers moved on with a defense that limited the Crusaders to nine first-half points.

Josh McCurdy led Springdale (16-7) with 12 points. Jeremy Affeldt had 22 for NWC, which made 40 percent of its shots, but managed just 38 attempts to Springdale’s 60 attempts.
