Peter Weiler had 21 points and six rebounds and Shane Souvenir added 13 points and eight rebounds for the Mules.

Winlock was led by Enrique Hernandez, who scored 21 points.

Dylan Hartz scored 18 points and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer, helping Lind-Ritzville/Sprague defeat Northwest Christian and move on to the semifinals.

In a back-and-forth game, neither team led by more than five. Lind-Ritzville-Sprague grabbed a 47-44 lead on Hartz’s 3 with 2 minutes left.

A reverse layup by Austin Friedly closed the gap to 47-46 with 20 seconds remaining. But Connor O’Neill pushed the Broncos’ lead back to three, sinking two foul shots with 19.1 seconds left.

Northwest Christian missed a 3 with 7 seconds left, and after Lind-Ritzville/Sprague missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 5.1 seconds remaining, the Crusaders failed to get a shot off after turning it over in the final seconds.

The game was the fifth between the two schools this season. Lind-Ritzville/Sprague has won four of the five games.

Friedly had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Crusaders, last year’s state runners-up.

St. George’s 73, Morton-W.P. 69 (OT)

Dexter Sienko led the way in overtime as the top-ranked Dragons avoided an upset with a win over the Timberwolves.

Sienko finished with 28 points and 18 rebounds and proved too much to handle late in the game.

Morton-White Pass led for most of the game until St. George’s closed the gap in the final minute. The Timberwolves’ Jesse Eveland was fouled on a put-back attempt with 0.4 seconds to play. He made 1 of 2 free throws to send the game into overtime.

St. George’s first basket in the second half provided a spark. Sienko got the ball at the top of the key, pump-faked his opponent, and drove to the hoop.

His powerful dunk that followed caused the hoop to fold onto itself, causing a short delay.

Will Tender added 19 points – 17 coming in the first half – for St. George’s.

Morton-White Pass was led by Kalen Dunlap’s team-high 18 points.

Morton-White Pass 17 16 12 15 9 - 69
