Area girls

Carey Sauer’s basket at the buzzer Friday lifted visiting Newport over 10th-ranked Colfax 49-48 in a Northeast A League season-ender that determined the No. 2 and 3 seeds to the District 7-A Tournament.

Newport (18-2, 12-2) trailed by double figures at halftime but took the lead early in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs (16-4, 10-4), who lost at Newport 65-60 earlier in the year, missed some late free throws. Colfax’s Angie Hall had nine rebounds and six steals.

Newport earned a first-round bye at district and doesn’t play until next Friday. Colfax hosts No. 6 Freeman on Tuesday, and would meet Newport again if it wins.
