YATES CENTER — Yates Center High’s girls were efficient early on offense and even better on defense Friday.
Their opening spurt gave the Wildcats all the cushion they needed to defeat visiting Altoona-Midway High 40-28.
The victory, in the semifinals of the Class 1A regional playoffs, puts Yates Center in tonight’s championship game against top-seeded St. Paul. Regardless of the outcome of tonight’s contest, Yates Center is assured of a berth in the substate playoffs next week.
