Morton-White Pass 54, St. George’s 51

The Timberwolves withstood a furious late rally and stunned the Dragons in the title game.

Morton-White Pass senior Kalen Dunlap, despite being limited by foul trouble, scored 19 points and Kaleb Poquette and Zach Walton each added 11.

The previously undefeated Dragons started slowly on offense and fell behind early. Dunlap scored 14 points in the first half as MWP built a 35-23 lead.

The pace slowed in the second half and St. George’s narrowed the gap.

With 1:10 left in the game, Dexter Sienko hit a shot near the basket to cut the Timberwolves’ lead to one. But Dragons’ senior Erik Muelheims missed two 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds that would have tied the game.

Sienko scored 16 of his game-high 25 points in the second half. Muelheims added 13.
