Saturday’s State 1B results



First place/second place

The Knights withstood the Red Devils’ furious rally in the second half and claimed their fifth title in the past seven years.

Sunnyside Christian’s 18-point third-quarter lead was trimmed to two late in the fourth, but the Knights did just enough down the stretch to hold Neah Bay at bay.

The Red Devils struggled with the Knights length, particularly 6-foot-7 forward Brian Broersma. Broersma had 11 blocks to go along with his 13 rebounds and 12 points.

Alex Brouwer added 13 points, seven rebounds and four assists for Sunnyside.

Midway through the third quarter, Neah Bay started using a full-court, pressure defense. The Red Devils were able to create several turnovers that fueled their comeback.

Abraham Venske scored 10 points and Josiah Greene added nine points and eight rebounds for Neah Bay.

LWK’s defense was on display as well, holding Pomeroy to just 11-of-48 shooting for the game. Cody LaMunyan was the sole Pirate to finish in double figures, scoring 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting. He added a team-high four rebounds.

Fourth place/sixth place

Led by Ignatius Medani’s 20 points, Christian Faith defeated Taholah.

Taholah’s Keanu Curleybear hit a 3-pointer with a minute left to put the Chitwins up by two but a free throw and layup for Christian Faith proved to be the difference.

Justin Curleybear topped all Chitwins with 12 points in a game that saw seven ties and eight lead changes. Christian Faith outscored Taholah 29-21 in the second half after scoring just 14 points in the game’s first two periods.

First place/second place

The Wildcats overcame the Knights’ early onslaught and came alive after halftime to capture their fifth consecutive state title.

Sunnyside Christian opened the game on a 10-0 run.

Paige Vincent and Kaitlin Druffel hit back-to-back 3s late in the first quarter to bring Colton to within four points at 12-8.

The Wildcats trailed 24-21 at halftime, but seized control in the second half. Colton ended the game on a 20-6 run, thanks in part to Jenna Moser, who sank several key shots.

Moser finished with a game-high 20 points and had seven rebounds while Paige Vincent added 19 points for Colton, including 3 of 5 3-pointers. The Knights were led by Katelyn Banks’ 13 points and Stormee Van Belle’s 11 rebounds. Van Belle, who led the Knights with a scoring average of 16.5 during the regular season, was held to six points.
