BREWSTER – Following a 40-point, 98-48 win over Bridgeport on Senior Night, Sat. Feb. 8, the Bears varsity basketball team swept aside Liberty Bell, 85-37, in post-season play last Friday, Feb. 14, to advance to the championship game against Lake Roosevelt at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18 in the Chelan Community gym.
The winner of the Bears-Raiders game will advance to Regional play while the loser plus third and fourth place Liberty Bell and Oroville will play crossover games against District opponents.
Brewster took a 22-point, 31-9 lead over the Mustangs in the opening quarter and never let Bridgeport back in the game, leading at all stops down the stretch.
Five Bears scored in double figures led by Cade Gebbers with 19. Kade Kelpman and Kelson Gebbers scored 14 piece, Connor Ashworth had 13, and Corey Jarrell, 11.
Kelpman pulled down 10 rebounds. Ashworth and Arellano had seven apiece.

The loss sent Bridgeport, ranked third in the Central Washington 2B league, into a loser-out match against No. 6 Liberty Bell in the first round of post-season play. The Mountain Lions won that game by a whisker, 61-60, to advance against the Bears in the second round of CW2B league action on Friday, Feb. 14.
Brewster never allowed Liberty Bell to establish its game, forcing multiple Mountain Lion turnovers and frequently converting those possessions into points. Liberty Bell had some good close-to-the-basket shot opportunities but could get few to fall. The Mountain Lions will face Oroville for third and fourth place in league and move on to face crossover opponents.
