Monroe girls withstand Newport rallies

Suzanna Ohlsen poured in 24 points and Monroe played tough defense down the stretch to hold off Newport, 57-50, in the fourth game of the ‘I Have a Dream’ Matchup Monday at Foster High School.

The Bearcats (8-6), who have won six of their past seven (losing only to No. 6 Edmonds-Woodway), let a 10-point, third-quarter lead slip away as Newport (6-7) rallied to tie the game at 41. The Knights triled just 51-48 late in the fourth before Monroe pulled away.

Bianca O’Hara chipped in 10 points for the Bearcats, while Ashley Alexander came up with six of her seven in the fourth quarter. Kierra Wilkins put together six points, eight steals, six rebounds, and three assists.

Chanel Chanbrenero led Newport with 10 points.
