Once again, we will be posting 4A girls updates here after each game throughout the day.
Consolation games (loser out)
Lewis and Clark 69, Rogers (Puyallup)
The Rams trailed just 25-20 with less than three minutes to play in the opening half, but L-C went on a 16-0 run that carried over into the third quarter. Rogers, which finishes the season 18-11, never got closer than 14 the rest of the way.
Julia Moravec and Hayley Hendricksen led a balanced L-C attack with 13 points each, while Mary Blevins added 12. Sophomore Jordan Asher paced Rogers with 17 points and set a tournament record with 18 three-point attemps (she makde 4). Nichole Jones was close behind with 16.
Edmonds-Woodway 55, Federal Way 52
Even without leading scorer Darah Huertas-Vining, who went bad with a bad ankle sprain Wednesday, the third-ranked Eagles battled and battled.
They cut a 12-point, fourth-quarter deficit to two, but E-W’s Angela Woods was clutch at the free-throw line, nailing 7 of 8 in the final 1:02. Brittany Barrington’s halfcourt shot at the buzzer banged off the backgoard.
Woods and Sydney Donaldson finished with 13 points each, while Madeline Kasper added 11. Ashley Albertson added eight points and 14 rebounds.
Federal Way, ending the season 21-8, got a game-high 20 points from Talia Walton. Barrington wound up with 16. Both are juniors (Huertas-Vining is just a sophomore) and give the Eagles big hopes again next season.
E-W faces another loser-out game Friday at 11 a.m. against Lewis and Clark. The winner is assured of a trophy.
Newport 48, Puyallup 33
Betsy Kingma poured in 26 points — a tournament best thus far — and that’s all Puyallup had as a team with less than two minutes left in the game.
The Vikings led 24-18 at halftime and 26-20 with 6:23 to play in the third. Then they went stone cold and were shut out until just 1:40 was left in the game. By that time, Newport led 45-26.
Puyallup (18-10) shot just 13.3 percent in the second half and committed 26 turnovers in the game. Ema Hetlerovic was the only Viking player in double figures with 10.
Sixth-ranked Newport (20-6) is one win away from a trophy.
Marysville-Pilchuck (17-7) vs. Moses Lake (15-13), 2 p.m.
Issquah 67, Lake Stevens 47
Mackenzie Shiltz sank 6 of 8 three-pointers (one shy of the tournament record) as the hot-shooting Eagles advanced to the semifinals.
Issaquah made 8 of 17 threes as a team (47.1 percent), while Lake Stevens hit just 4 of 18 (22.2) percent).
Dominique Mendezona added 14 points and Maddey Pflaumer had 12 for unranked Issaquah (23-4). No. 10 Lake Stevens (19-6) got nine points from Stephanie Schumacher while three others had eight each (Sam Peterson, Kayla Bostwick and Brooke Pahukoa).
Auburn Riverside 57, Chiawana 45
Mercedes Wetmore wowed the crowd with 22 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals as the top-ranked Ravens (27-0) advance to the semfinals.
They play Issaquah Friday at 7 p.m.
Kat Cooper added 13 points. Chiawana (24-4) got within six in the fourth quarter, but missed opportunities and Riverside pulled away. The Riverhawks were led by Hayley Hodgins with 13 points. Mikaela Rivard had nine points and eight boards.
Mead 74, Kentwood 71
In the most entertaining game of the tournament thus far, Mead rallied to erase an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter and earn a spot in the semifinals.
Jazmine Redmon scored 32 — tops in the tourney to date — but three others were in double figures, too. Chenise Pakootas had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
But it was 5-1 junior Kylie Huerta who stole the show with 26 points, including 16 in the third quarter. This after Liz Mills scored 17 of her 25 in the first 12 minutes. Courtney Johnson had 10 of her 14 in the fourth.
Garfield 64, Bellarmine Prep 52
Renee Dillard-Brown led a trio of Garfield players in double figures with 18 points. Shaunice Robinson had 12 and Cora McManus put up 10 points while pulling down 10 rebounds.
The Bulldogs (16-9) will play Mead in the semifinals Friday night at 8:30 p.m.
Sarah Hartwell (17) and Shelby Swofford (12) paced fifth-ranked Bellarmine.
Garfield led 38-31 at the half and used an 11-4 third quarter to pull away.
