The winner will take on the winner of the East Helena-Corvallis 4 p.m. match at 8 o’clock Friday night.

Dillon earned a bye with the top seed. The Beavers will play Frenchtown or Stevensville at 6 p.m. Friday. The Broncs and Yellowjackets open the tournament at noon.

The top four teams from the district tournament advance to the Western A Divisional tournament the next week in Ronan.
