KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Wrangell High School Lady Wolves defeated the Craig High School Lady Panthers 50-44 on Saturday morning at the Clarke Cochrane Gymnasium in the second-place game of the Region V (2A, 3A, 4A) Basketball Tournament.

A win for the Lady Wolves means both 2A girls’ bids for the state tournament in Anchorage have been solidified, with Wrangell grabbing the second spot, and the Metlakatala High School Miss Chiefs winning the top seed outright.

Craig had a brief lead of three points after the opening quarter, but could not do much to increase its advantage as the morning pressed on.

After the first eight minutes were finished, Wrangell ended each of the next three quarters leading by an average five points on the scoreboard.

Despite the strong shooting performance in the win, the Lady Wolves did not make a single 3-point field goal for the game’s entirety.

Wrangell went 16-for-25 from the free-throw line in the winning effort to begin the final day of tournament action.

Scoring line

Wrangell: Kaylyn Easterly 18, Helen Decker 11, Anna Allen 8, Abby Gerald 8, Maddy Harding 3, Elizabeth Armstrong 2.

Craig: Ashley Hansen 12, Sarah Yates 10, Mary Bolling 8, Dior Vaughan 6, Pia Dinon 6, Sara Burnham.
