4A state girls tournament updates

We will be posting 4A girls updates here after each game throughout the day.

Lake Stevens 52, Rogers 47

Even without Meghan Warbis, possibly their best all-around player, the 10th-ranked Vikings got the job done — thanks to some pretty good free throw shooting in the fourth quarter, when they hit 14 of 19.

Brooke Pahukoa led the way with 12 points, while Stephanie Schumacher had 11. Abby Molstre added eight points and a game-high 12 rebounds.

Rogers, which turned the ball over 28 times, got 19 points from Sherelle Williams and 15 from Nichole Jones.

Issaquah 51. Lewis and Clark 49 (16-9) vs. Issaquiah

Maddey Pflaumer grabbed an offensive rebound, was fouled and sank two free throws with sixth-tenths of a second to put the Eagles into the quarterfinals, where they will face Lake Stevens.

L-C led by six with 3:20 to play, but couldn’t close the deal.

Issaquah’s Dominique Mendezona scored a game-high 15 points, while Blaire Brady added 13 and also pulled down nine rebounds. Pflaumer finished with eigh and also had five boards.

For the Tigers, Daisy Burke scored 10 and Devyn Galland nine.

Auburn Riverside 51, Edmonds-Woodway 39

The top-ranked Ravens trailed for 2 1/2 quarters before putting together a 13-0 run to take control. Kat Cooper scored 11 of her 18 points in the second half and also grabbed 11 rebounds. Mercedes Wetmore added 15 points and three assists and Kara Jenkins was key with eight points, seven rebounds and four steals.

Ashley Albertson had a huge game for E-W with 16 points and 15 rebounds. After shooting 43.8 percent in the first half, the Warriors hit just 15.4 percent in the second.

Chiawana 43, Federal Way 40

It was a tough loss for the third-ranked Eagles, who led most of the way. When leading scorer Darah Huertas-Vining went down with what appears to be a bad ankle sprain with 4:44 left in the game, they were up by eight, 39-31.

Without their playmaker, the Eagles watched the lead slip away.

Shelby Ellsworth led the Chiawana comeback with five of her 13 points down the stretch.

Huertas-Vining, who left the court on crutches, finished with 13 points, while Talia Walton put together 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Kentwood 57, Newport 53

Kylie Huerta scored 11 of her 20 points in the fourth quarter as the second-ranked Conqeurors came from behind for the victory.

No. 6 Newport led 45-43 with 5:55 left in the game, but Huerta keyed an 8-0 run, capped by a steal and lay in. She iced the victory with four free throws in the final 20.5 seconds.

Liz Mills was KW’s go-to player for the first three quarters, when she scored 19 of her 21 points. She also played tough defense on Betsy Kingma. Kingma had 22 points, but made just 2-of-12 three-pointers. She was 10-of-11 at the line.

Caitlin Bennett added 19 points for the Knights.

Mead 66, Puyallup 37

Taylor Ingebritsen didn’t miss a shot in leading the eighth-ranked Panthers to an easy victory. She was 8-for-8 from the field (including 2-for-2 from 3-point rainge) and 2-for-2 at the line en route to a game-high 20 points.

Jazmine Redmon added 17 points, seven rebounds and four steals for Mead, which led 37-18 at halftime.

Ema Hetlerovic led Puyallup with 10 points.

Garfield 69, Marsyville-Pilchuck 59

Garfield led by just three late in the first half, then steadily pulled away.

Nyasha Sarju led a trio of Bulldogs in double figures with 21 points, while Cora McManus added 14 and Renee Dillard-Brown added 10. McManus just missed a double-double, grabbing nine rebounds.

Marysville-Pilchuck was led by Morgan Martinis with 18 (including 4 three-pointers). Dacia Heckendorf followed with 14 and Andi Adams had 11.

Bellarmine Prep 65, Moses Lake 55

Bellarmine advances to the quarterfinals after losing in the first round in each of the past four years.

Sarah Hartwell led the way with 18 points and Jadea Brundidge added 12. The Lions make 22 of 37 free throws.

Jordan Loera paced Moses Lake with 15 and she also grabbed 10 rebounds. Tiffany Morris and Megan Sutherland added nine points each.
