Saline boys to play Atlanta in Dodson on Saturday for district 2C title

After a little over three months of competition where both teams played 33 games overall and ten games in district play it all boils down to a one game, winner take all, scenario for the 2C championship between long time rivals Saline and Atlanta High Schools. The district deciding playoff game will take place at 5:30pm on Saturday at Dodson High School.

Both enter the contest with 8-2 district records. Both also have had similar seasons of suffering through the 2022 portion of the schedule before catching fire in 2023. Saline has the better overall record at 19-14 after losing 9 of their first ten games while Atlanta comes in with a deceiving 13-20 slate after closing 2022 by losing 15 of the final 16 games played. Once the calendar flipped to 2023 Atlanta went 10-3 and Saline posted a 12-4 mark. 

The main difference is that Atlanta won both games against Saline in district play beating the Bobcats 50-38 on January 10th and then again by a 68-55 score on January 31st. Atlanta’s two district losses was a 60-57 defeat against Georgetown and a district season ending 61-55 defeat at the hands of Calvin.  and even more importantly won both games over Saline in district play by 13 and 12 points.
