Friday Harbor trailed La Conner 8-5 after the first quarter but the Wolverine offense scored a point to the Braves’ 15 in the second period. The Wolverines limited the Braves to 16 points in the second half, and their offense started to get on track but they couldn’t overcome the deficit.

La Conner scored nearly four times as many free-throw points as Friday Harbor: The Braves went 11-for-19 from the line while the Wolverines were 3-for-8.

The Wolverines’ scorers were: Leah Black 6, Kiona Woods 4, Bailee Lambright 4, Savannah Hoffman 2, Ava Hoffman 2 and Liz Cruz 1. The Braves’ scorers were: Matty Lagerwey 15, Avery Sloniker 10, Ketelina O’Brien 6, Justine Benson 4 and Raven Edwards 3. BRACKETS for REGIONAL and STATE
