Friday hoops: SoHi cagers sweep in Kodiak

Posted: February 4, 2012 - 12:44am

The Soldotna girls and boys basketball teams notched Northern Lights Conference victories on Friday in Kodiak.

The SoHi girls won 44-40, while the boys won 70-47.

The Kodiak boys led 30-20 at halftime, but were outscored 50-17 in the second half. Evan Withrow had 24 points for SoHi, while Garrett Bosick and Cory Carver each had 11 points.

The SoHi girls won thanks to 10 of 10 shooting from the line in the fourth quarter from Kaillee Skjold. Skjold was 13 of 14 from the charity stripe in the game en route to 15 points. Julie Litchfield added 11.

Kodiak’s Jadelle Taan nailed a 3-pointer with 19 seconds left to bring Kodiak within 42-40. Skjold hit a pair of free throws with 14.8 seconds left to seal the win.

Lady Lynx Prep Shootout

On Friday, the Kenai Central girls defeated South 52-33 for their first victory at the Dimond tournament.

Saturday, Kenai will play Craig for fourth place at 12:30 p.m. in the Maroon Tournament.

Kenai had a 28-16 lead by halftime against the Wolverines. The Kards were 24 of 57 from the field in the game, while the Wolverines were just 10 of 39.

Sydney Taylor had 18 points to lead Kenai, while Bailey Beeson added 10. For South, Taylor Murray had 14 points.

Barrow Invitational

The Kenai Central boys evened their record in Barrow to 1-1 on Friday with a 62-59 victory over Sitka.

The Kards took a 22-14 lead after one quarter and led 32-24 at halftime. Sitka chipped away at the lead and had a 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie that missed.

Seahawk Classic

On Friday, the Homer boys cruised past Valdez 70-40 to improve to 2-0 at the tournament. Devon Kennelty had 18 points for the Mariners, while Ryan Cotney had 13, Konstantin Reutov had 12 and Robin Glosser had 10. For Valdez, Glacier Rohrer had 17 points.

Also Friday, the Valdez girls topped Homer 57-30 to move to 2-0 at the tournament.

The Buccaneers put three players in double figures. Alex Derifield had 17 points, while Rachel MacDonald had 13 and Caitlin Aulde had 10. For Homer, Haley Oliver and Tayla Cabana had eight points apiece.

Also Friday, the Seward girls defeated Skyview 64-23. Ashley VonBorstel and Meg Berry each had 11 points for Seward, while Jessica Stallings added 10. For Skyview, Chelsey Ahlers had 13 points.

In Friday’s final game, the Seward boys moved to 2-0 at the tournament by topping Skyview 69-51.

Skyview was whistled for 32 fouls in the game, with five players fouling out. The Seahawks went 37 of 48 from the line.

Jalen Terry paced Seward with 22 points, while Logan Clemens had 14 and Matthew Moore added 13. For Skyview, Jordan Jones and Albert White each had 13 points before fouling out.

Nenana Invitational Tournament

The Cook Inlet Academy boys defeated Fort Yukon 59-39 on Friday to make it to the Saturday finals, which are slated for 8 p.m.

Levi Grinestaff paced the Eagles with 20 points, while David Reischach added 14.

“It might have been the best game I’ve seen him play this year,” CIA coach Justin Franchino said of Grinestaff. “He was really kind of the difference-maker today for us.”

Franchino said his squad had a small lead at the half, but played much better in the second half. He said in the first half the team was still amped up from cheering on the CIA girls, so that may have affected play.

The girls dropped a 62-59 double-overtime decision to Fort Yukon in the semifinals. Keely Powers had 18 and Megan Bauder had 17 as the Eagles lost for the second time this year.

CIA coach Rustin Hitchcock said Powers transformed into a senior leader in the game. In the first overtime, CIA was down by five with 13 seconds left, but Powers scored five points in 10 seconds.

Hitchcock said the environment was very hostile for his team.

“Granted, we came away with the loss, but I’ve never been more proud of anything I’ve been involved with in my life,” he said.

In the other semifinals, the Nikolaevsk girls and boys were swept by Nenana. The Nikolaevsk and CIA girls play Saturday at 3:30 p.m. for third place. The Nikolaevsk boys face Fort Yukon at 5 p.m. Saturday for third place.

Lena B. Ferguson Memorial Tournament

On Friday, the Ninilchik girls toppled Unalakleet 27-25 to advance to the third-place game in Chevak. In the third-place game, the Wolverines topped Hooper Bay 36-31. The end of the tournament was moved up a day due to storms.

Ninilchik had just six players available for the third-place game after Lyndsay Appelhanz turned an ankle. The Wolverines were down by seven points late in the third quarter of the game.

Lilly Kelson broke a tie game for the Wolverines with 2:30 left by nailing a 3-pointer. Ninilchik then hit 4 of 6 from the foul line down the stretch to secure the win.

Esther Ehlers paced Ninilchik with 15 points, while Kaylee Smith had nine.

Also Friday in Chevak, the Ninilchik boys defeated Unalakleet 52-38. The Wolverines were eliminated from the tourney with the loss.
