KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan High School girls basketball team fell to Juneau-Douglas High School 41-35 in a Southeast conference game on Friday night at the JDHS gym.
Kayhi’s offense had some difficulty getting started in the defeat, as the Lady Kings were able to put up double-digits in only the fourth quarter.
Despite the slow output on the offensive end, Kayhi was down by only six points at halftime.
Unfortunatley for Kayhi, six points would turn out be the margin of defeat on Friday.
As a team, the Lady Kings went 8-for-12 from the foul line, but were limited from beyond the arc, and made just a trio of 3-pointers.
Junior Payton Simmons led the team with 11 points scored, and made one shot from long range.
Team captain and junior Brittany Slick went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line and scored nine points in the losing effort.
Junior Ashley Huffine made a 3-pointer and also made half of her six foul shots for Kayhi.
It was the first Southeast conference loss for the Lady Kings this season.
Kayhi and Juneau-Douglas will play again on Saturday night in what will be the Lady Kings’ final game played in the capital this season.
Kayhi will then return home to Ketchikan for their final two games of the regular season against the Thunder Mountain High School Lady Falcons.
