Weekend hoops roundup

Posted: January 12, 2014 - 12:01am

The Soldotna girls basketball team defeated Wasilla for the second time in less than a week Friday.

The Stars notched a 51-31 victory Friday after edging the Warriors on Jan. 4 in the final game of Doc Larson’s Roundball Classic.

The SoHi defense held Wasilla, the three-time defending 4A state champions, on only a pair of field goals and eight total points during the second half. Soldotna held a slim 24-23 lead at halftime, but outscored WHS 12-3 in the third and 15-5 in the fourth.

The Stars kept all the Warriors out of double digits.

Makayla Wong notched a double-double for the Stars, finishing with a game-high 14 points and 12 rebounds. Katelynn Kerkvliet also scored 14 and added nine rebounds. Julie Litchfield chipped in a dozen.

Sparked by stingy defense in the second quarter, the Wasilla boys scored a 54-50 NLC win over Soldotna on Friday at Wasilla High.

Wasilla outscored SoHi 17-4 during the second and didn’t allow a field goal during the frame. The Stars did make several trips to the free throw line during the quarter, but were only 4 for 9 from the line.

Cameron Brown scored nine of his game-high 17 points in the second quarter, and Stone Krueger added a three-pointer during the period.

Zack Garnett added 11 points for Wasilla in the game, and Krueger chipped in nine.

Daniel McElroy had 21 points for SoHi, while Austin Kruse had 15.

Sophomore Carly Venzke hit the go-ahead basket with a minute left in the game to key the NLC win Friday.

Katie Bowman and Leya DePriest also had eight points for Palmer.

Justice English had a game-high 18 points for the Kards.

Palmer boys 58, Kenai 48
