Lady Kings drop game against Kenai

KETCHIKAN (KDN) — Ketchikan High School was down against Kenai High School on Thursday. But the Lady Kings were never out.

After Kayhi’s Nadire Zhuta hit a pair of 3-pointers to inch the Lady Kings ahead 14-12 after the first quarter, Kayhi’s Emmie Smith extended the lead with an early basket in the second frame.

But the 16-12 lead at Dimond High School quickly evaporated. And the first round matchup in the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout maroon bracket would fall in favor of the Lady Kardinals, 49-45.

Kenai closed out the first half with a 11-2 run, carrying a 23-18 lead at the break.

Kayhi climbed back, making the contest a one possession game several times.

The Lady Kings were behind 23-20 midway through the third quarter, but fell behind by 10 points heading into the fourth frame, 36-26.

Again, Kayhi battled back, cutting the deficit to three points, 43-40. But Kenai was a perfect 10 for 10 from the free throw line, and hit six freebies in the fourth quarter to solidify the win.

The loss bounces Kayhi to Friday’s 4:30 p.m. matchup against Palmer High School.
