Listen live online Saturday on the Slocum Sports Network as the Watervliet Panthers host the Hartford Indians in boys and girls high school basketball. The girls varsity is scheduled for around 5 p.m. with the boys around 6:30 p.m. Although they are no longer conference rivals within the SAC, these schools are meeting twice again this season.
The Watervliet boys enter the weekend at 1-0, taking their opener 59-46 last weekend over Martin. Saturday’s game will be their third, as the Panthers face Fennville Friday. Hartford opens their season Friday against Marcellus, with their original opener Tuesday against Mendon postponed to January 4th due to snow. They met twice last season with the home team winning both times, 55-41 at Hartford and 54-35 at Watervliet.
The Watervliet girls come into the weekend at 2-1 and Hartford goes into the weekend at 2-0. The Panthers took both contests over the Indians last season, 67-51 and 48-44. The season before, Hartford won both meetings.
Listen to both games live online on the Slocum Sports Network with the girls varsity around 5 p.m. and the boys around 6:30 p.m. at Watervliet High School.
