Todd Beamer derailed Jawan Stepney and Kentridge with a surprising 51-36 victory over the previously undefeated Chargers for the 4A West Central /Southwest bi-district boys basketball title at Pacific Lutheran University on Saturday.
Both teams already have secured regional tournament berths.
Kentridge plays Arlington at 8 p.m. Friday at Kent-Meridian High School in a regional opener. Beamer takes on Bothell at 4 p.m. this Saturday at Puyallup High School.
