Lady Kings sweep Thunder Mountain

KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan High School girls basketball team defeated Thunder Mountain High School by a final score of 52-40 at the TMHS gym in Juneau on Saturday evening.

For Kayhi, the win is the second in as many nights and also the second against an opponent from the Southeast conference this season.

With senior and team captain Brittany Slick finding herself in foul trouble and sitting most of the second half, fellow senior captain Hannah Maxwell took over the offense in the win.

Slick finished with four points

Maxwell scored 17 points to pace the Lady Kings on offense against the Lady Falcons, using her physical style of play to draw contact on the interior.

In total, Maxwell made 11 trips to the free-throw line, and made seven of those opportunities.

Junior Ashley Huffine contributed nine points and made a shot from beyond the 3-point line.

Kayhi also bested Thunder Mountain 41-27 on Friday night, after travel difficulties forced a late tip-off.

The Lady Kings will next play against West Anchorage High School to open the Dimond Lady Lynx Tournament on Feb. 7.

Scoring line:

Kayhi: Hannah Maxwell 17, Payton Simmons 14, Ashley Huffine 9, Madison Rose 6, Brittany Slick 4, Nadire Zhuta 2.

Thunder Mountain: Andee Johnson 13, Neal Garcia 13, Taz Hanck 6, Khaye Garcia 4, Nina Fenumiai 2, Kira Frommherz 2.
