POST FALLS — The Sandpoint Future seventh grade boys claimed the title at River City Tournament on Nov. 12-14 in Post Falls.

The team went 4-1 during the tournament and capped the weekend with a thrilling championship game against the River City Thunder. River City beat Sandpoint in league play earlier in the week and again during the round-robin portion of the tournament. But the Future were eager for a rematch in the championship and they battled to a 15-15 tie with River City at the half.

In the second half, Sandpoint broke it open. They took a 31-18 lead after three quarters and cruised to a 42-32 victory in the fourth quarter.

"The boys played with confidence, hustled on both ends of the court and didn’t back down when faced with adversity,” head coach Steven Chamberlain said.
