The Oakville girls team will be matched up against Webster Groves (15-9), who just defeated the Tigers 68-26. Having such a tough district battle ahead of them, the Tigers need to gain a ton of momentum against Mehlville to continue their season after game one of districts.

Final Word:

Coming off of seven straight losses, a big rivalry game win would be crucial for the Panthers. Mehlville will be playing Lindbergh (10-14) in the first round of districts. A big win against Oakville would give the Panthers a push start into a winnable game in districts. The Panthers fell to Lindbergh 55-37 in a meeting at Lindbergh earlier this season.
