The reschduled games will give Powell five matches in 10 days.
Both the boys’ and girls’ squads will play at Lander Friday and at Pinedale Saturday, take on Worland next Thursday, and then travel to Star Valley and Jackson May 9-10.
The busy stretch will go a long way to deciding the Panthers’ 2014 fate.
The Panther boys (4-3, 2-1 in the Northwest) were hoping to clinch a quadrant title by beating the Warriors on Tuesday, but will have to be patient before attempting to secure their spot at state. The boys have dropped three in a row since coming back from a two-week break. Their last win came against Cody April 7.
Jackson and Buffalo (ranked No. 1 and 2 in the state, respectively) each proved to be a formidable opponent for the Powell boys, and the schedule doesn’t get much easier Friday. The No. 3 Lander Tigers are 9-2 overall and sit in first place in the Class 3A Southeast.
Meanwhile, the girls (4-7, 1-2) are chasing a .500 record and their own ticket to the state tournament.
After defeating Cody for the first time in the program’s history, the girls stumbled with losses to Buffalo and Jackson this past weekend.
Lander (10-1) is the top-ranked girls’ team in 3A and has already clinched a Southeast title with a 4-0 quadrant record.
