Nikolaevsk boys 60, Noatak 52
The Warriors staved off elimination in the Class 1A consolation bracket Monday night at West High School with a gutsy fourth-quarter effort to top Noatak, advancing into the semifinal round.
Nikolaevsk will play St. Mary’s-Akiachak at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at West.
Trailing by five points heading into the fourth quarter, the Peninsula Conference runner-ups found help from freshman Nikit Fefelov, who hit consecutive 3-pointers midway through the fourth quarter that put Nikolaevsk right on Noatak’s doorstep.
