4A state girls tournament updates — Day 3

You can get your quick recaps of each game here as soon as we can put them together after each game. Here’s the lineup:

Consolation games

(loser out; winners assured of a trophy)

Edmonds-Woodway 56. Lewis and Clark 53

With the game tied at 44 midway through the final quarter, Alex Kennedy started an 8-0 run that put the Warriors up 52-44 with 1:14 to play and they sealed the victory at the line.

Angela Woods and Madeline Kasper dropped in 15 points each, while Ashley Albertson came up big with 12 points and 14 rebounds.

LC got 11 points and 18 boards from Hayley Hendricksen. Nakia Arquette led all scorers with 16.

E-W (24-3) plays Moses Lake (17-13) for fifth and eighth places Saturday at 11:30 a.m. L-C finishes the season 17-10.

Moses Lake 49, Newport 34

The Knights got off to a miserable start, falling behind 14-0, and never recovered as their trophy hopes came to an end.

Moses Lake guard Jordan Loera put together 19 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Chiefs (17-13), who wrapped up a trophy. They play Edmonds-Woodway (24-3) for fifth and eighth places Saturday at 11:30 a.m. (in case you didn’t read the E-W update above).

Newport senior Betsy Kingma goes out with 18 points and five rebounds. No one else scored more than five for the Knights, who win up 20-7 on the year. They shot a horrific 6.9 percent from three-point range (2 of 29) and 18.3 percent overall. Ouch. They are much better than that.

Chiawana 52, Lake Stevens 44

Down 19 in the third quarter, Lake Stevens rallied to cut it to one with 3:06 to play, 43-42, but that’s as close as it got.

Mikaela Rivard scored 12 of her 24 points in the third period. Brooke Pahukoa and Stephanie Schumacher scored 14 each for the Vikings, who finish the season 19-7.

Fourth-ranked Chiawana (25-4), a first-year school in Pasco, plays No. 5 Bellarmine Prep Saturday (20-8) at 1:30 p.m. in a game to determine fourth and seventh places.

Bellarmine Prep 63, Kentwood 49

The second-ranked Conquerors jumped up 19-11 in the first quarter, then it was all Bellarmine. It was the Lions’ third win over Kentwood this season.

Mechela Barnes stepped up with 14 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals. Sarah Hartwell added 13 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks.

Kentwood (23-7), coming off that crushing loss to Mead in Thursday’s quarterfinals, got 18 points from Liz Mills and 16 from Sanda Milovic. Courtney Johnson added eight points and 13 rebounds.

Kylie Huerta struggled (1-for-14), showing the effects of a knee injury suffered Thursday. She had just three points.

Semifinals

Auburn Riverside 58, Issaquah 40

The top-ranked Ravens (28-0) watched a 16-point lead dwindle to four on three consecutive three-pointers, but Mercedes Wetmore screod 10 of her 17 points in the final 4:09 to seal the victory.

Auburn Riverside returns to the title game for the third time in four years, winning 3A titles in 2007 and ’08.

Kat Cooper put together 17 points and 11 rebounds, while Taylor Wofford made a differece with her 10 points.

Issaquah (23-5), which shot just 26.8 percent from the field, got 14 ponits from Brooke Miller. Blaire Brady pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds. Maddey Pflaumer had seven points and nine rebounds before fouling out early in the fourth.

Riverside plays either Mead (23-5) at 9 p.m. Saturday. Issaquah plays the Garfield (16-10) at 3:30 p.m. to decide third and sixth places.

Mead 54, Garfield 53

After missing her first 12 shots of the game, Chanise Pakootas made the only one that really mattered — a putback with five seconds that gave Mead the victory.

Garfield let an 11-point, third-quarter lead slip away.

Cora McManus, who finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds, had put the Bulldogs ahead 53-52 with a follow of her own with 24 seconds to play. Mead missed three times before getting the game-winner.

Jazmine Redmon and Kalee Junkermier scored 16 each for the eighth-ranked Panthers (23-5), who play No. 1 Auburn Riverside (28-0) in Saturday’s 9 p.m. championship game. Taylor Ingebritsen added 12. Garfield got 14 points from Shaunice Robinson and 13 from Nyasha Sarju.

Great effort by the Bulldogs (16-10), who face Issaquah (23-5) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the trophy game for third and sixth places.
