The West Linn boys basketball team battled.
And the Lions battled some more, but on Friday, West Salem was just too much, the Titans putting together a 72-62 victory at West Linn High School that gave them a berth in the Class 6A state tournament and left the Lions on the outside for the first time since 2010.
A big game like that deserves great photos, so here's a slideshow of the best images from Friday's contest. Click on the big "X" in the upper right-hand corner of the slideshow for fullscreen, then click through and click through again to pick out your favorites.
