After losing three games in the boys sub-district basketball tournament, the Foster Bulldogs on Monday night beat Renton High for the third time this season, keeping their drive to state alive.

The Bulldogs trounced the Renton Indians 63-38 in the first round of District 3 2A Boys Basketball Tournament in Tacoma, knocking Renton from the postseason.

The Bulldogs entered district play seeded 12th and the Indians were seeded fifth. The first round pits low seeds against high seeds.

After Friday night’s 57-42 loss against Steilacoom High School at Foster, the Bulldogs told Coach Isaac Tucker they wanted to practice on Saturday.

Monday night, the Bulldogs were ready to play. They beat the Indians by the largest margin yet this season.

Next up, the Bulldogs play fourth-seed Sequim at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, at Curtis High School in Tacoma.

If the Bulldogs win Wednesday, they’ll play in the district semifinals on Friday, Feb. 21, at 7:45 p.m. at Foss High School. If the Bulldogs lose, they’ll play in at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, at Bellarmine Prep in a loser-out game.

The district championship game is at 2 p.m. Saturday at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma.
