Bluffton will once again host the annual McDonald's Holiday Tournament to tip off the girls basketball season this weekend.

The Lady Pirates will host local non-league rival Cory-Rawson in the second semifinal Friday night, Nov. 20, at 7:30 p.m. That contest will be preceded by the opener at 5:30 p.m. between Allen East and defending tourney champion Arlington.

The third-place contest will be held Saturday at 5:30 p.m., followed by the championship game between the semifinal winners at 7:30 p.m.

Admission will be on a split session basis both nights.

C-R upset Bluffton last year in the semis. The Pirates rebounded to knock off AE in the consolation game.

Bluffton went on to post a solid 14-9 record last winter. The Pirate girls fell to Arlington in the sectional finals.
