Five western Nevada County basketball teams began last week’s Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs with a trip to Arco Arena and the finals on the brain.

Both the Nevada Union and Forest Lake Christian boys and girls teams had early exits, but the Bear River girls bulldozed through their half of the bracket and earned a second straight trip to the division III finals.

Second-seeded St. Francis of Sacramento is all that stands in the way between the No.1 Lady Bruins and a ninth section title.

The doors will open at 3:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $6 for students.

On site parking will cost $8.

Modesto Christian v Ripon Christian, 4 p.m.


Denair v. Ripon Christian, 7:30 p.m.

Division III Girls

Bear River v. St. Francis, 5:30 p.m.


Foothill v. Natomas, 9 p.m.
