VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS — Panthers, Tigers (and Tanuvasa) impress in NCS openers

By Ray Hamill — The Arcata girls and McKinleyville boys both advanced to the quarterfinals of the Division-4 North Coast Section basketball playoffs with impressive wins on Wednesday night.

The Arcata girls had to battle all the way against a solid St. Bernard’s team that was led once again by the super talented Lele Tanuvasa.

Check out our highlights from both games above, including some outstanding play by Tanuvasa.

The Mack boys, meanwhile, overcame a sluggish start on their way to victory over Fort Bragg.

The Panthers trailed 25-16 after the opening quarter, but took control in the second quarter and would hold the visitors to just 20 points over the final three quarters combined.
