The 14-year-old team is a part of a five-team bracket. The first game of the night pairs Elba and Greenville at 6 p.m.

The winner of that game has a bye until Monday, advancing to the semifinal round.

The winner of Troy and Luverne faces Highland Home Saturday at 8 p.m. The losers of the first round games also face each other at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Should Troy win the game Saturday, the team would go to the semifinals on Monday (no games are played Sunday). The championship game is set for June 25 at 7 p.m.

The 13-year-old team faces Luverne today following the Greenville-Dothan game. This bracket has only four teams in it, so byes are not necessary.

The losers of today's games play Saturday at 6 p.m. The winners play at 8 p.m. The finals of the loser's bracket will be Monday at 9 p.m., and the finals will be Tuesday at 9 p.m.

The winners of both tournaments will head to the district tournament in Eufaula.

Eufaula received a bye in the sub-district tournament because the city is playing host to the district tournaments

All tournaments occurring in Troy will give the same benefit to Troy teams.
