KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Petersburg High School girls basketball team defeated Haines High School 33-23 in the 2A girls bracket of the 2018 Region V 4A/3A/2A Tournament on Wednesday at the Clarke Cochrane Gymnasium Gym.

After a slow start, Petersburg pulled off a stunning comeback in the second half with help from a slew of baskets by senior Courtney Fredricksen late in the game.

The game’s first half was low scoring for both teams, with the first quarter concluding in a 6-6 tie.

By half time, Haines had solidified a 12-6 lead.

But, in the third quarter, Petersburg took that lead away with an onslaught of layups. The team scored 13 points that quarter, bringing the score to 19-14.

Both teams struggled hard for the lead in the fourth quarter, with the intensity of play ramping up dramatically.

But Petersburg managed to double its lead by the end of the game, partly thanks to Fredricksen, who scored 8 points in the quarter.

The Lady Vikings move on to play the Metlakatla Miss Chiefs at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Haines will play at Craig at 8 a.m. on Thursday.

Petersburg: Courtney Fredricksen 12, Katie Brock 7, Maddie Parker 6, Tayla Heppe 4, Ally Davis 2, Holli Davis 2.
