For Eagle River, Tessa Heagy dumped in 10 points.

Nikiski won with a balanced attack, putting seven players in the scorebook. Seth Carstens had eight points, while Stephen Hartley, Jesse Ross and Dylan Griffith had six.

For Kotzebue, Isaiah Savok led all scorers with 12 points.

In other boys action Friday, Houston topped Dillingham 40-37. Matt Barron had 15 points for the Hawks, while Kendall Alvarado paced Dillingham with 13.

Wasilla girls 54, Kenai 20

The Warriors smothered the Kards en route to the win on Friday night at Kenai, encouraged by a strong push in the second half in which Wasilla outscored Kenai 32-11.

Sydney Taylor came up big for Kenai, claiming 14 of the team’s 20 points for her own.

The Kardinals trailed 22-9 at halftime, a deficit not impossible to overcome, but only managed two made free throws from Taylor in the third quarter against 16 points from Wasilla. Once again, poor shooting from the team took hold as Wasilla converted 18 shots to Kenai’s six.

The Warriors pulled away in the fourth quarter in a tightly contested game against the Kardinals on Friday night at Kenai, outscoring Kenai 21-15 in the fourth.

Senior Shane Spalding led Kenai with 18 points, but Kenai suffered poor shooting from the free-throw line, going 14 for 26. 

Leading 11-9 after one quarter, Kenai fell behind Wasilla at the half by two points. When it looked as though the Kards would try to rally in the fourth quarter, that’s when Wasilla dropped the hammer.

Kenai now holds a 4-7 season record.

Grace Christian boys 57, Skyview 29

Buoyed by a 17-2 outscoring performance in the second quarter, the Grizzlies cruised to a win over the Panthers on Friday night at Skyview.

Tim Duke led Skyview’s effort with 11 points, and teammate Kaleb Henderson chipped in eight points as well.

Grace led 28-9 at the half, and only piled it on from there. Another 17-point effort in the third quarter made sure that Skyview had no hopes of a comeback, although the Panthers kept pace with Grace in the fourth quarter with 12 points apiece.

Skyview will face Anchorage Christian on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Skyview.

Grace Christian girls 37, Skyview 35

Hayley Ramsell led a balanced effort from the Panthers with 10 points, and teammates Meghan Powers and Dallas Derflinger added nine and eight points, respectively.

Grace outscored Skyview 12-5 in the second frame to give the Grizzlies a 16-11 halftime lead, and both teams brought the offense in the fourth quarter. Skyview posted 16 points to Grace’s 15 in the fourth, but fell short.

Skyview and Anchorage Christian Schools meet on Saturday at Skyview at 2:30 p.m.
