Thunder Mountain's Ben Jahn (32) shoots between Juneau-Douglas' Adam Empson )12) and Gary Speck (40) during Homecoming action at JDHS on Saturday. The Crimson Bears will host Wasilla tonight at 7 p.m. and the Falcons will host the Warriors on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

The powerhouse from Sarah’s house is coming to town today. The Wasilla Warriors will be playing at Juneau-Douglas High School tonight at 7 p.m. and at Thunder Mountain High School tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. The Crimson Bears (5-11, 1-3) will look to get back in the winning action and the Falcons (9-5, 3-1) will see if they can keep pace with the Ketchikan Kings recent adventures against the Anchorage valley team.


The Warriors lost at Ketchikan (7-10, 2-2) on Friday 58-45 (Kable Lervick and Brien Auger 12 points apiece). Wasilla was playing without top player Dane Kulper. The Warriors have solid guard play in Stone Krueger and Cash McGregor and a solid performer in Isaiah Dawkins and will have a strong team returning next season.

The state’s No. 1 ranked Wasilla Lady Warriors’ girls topped the Kayhi Lady Kings (7-7, 4-2) 62-39 at Ketchikan on Friday. Kayhi’s Jayley Taylor and Wasilla’s 6-foot-one Kyla Dinkel tied for game-high scoring honors with 17 points apiece.
