Neah Bay clinched its third straight trip to the Class 1B state tournament while avenging a 40-point loss to Lummi in last year’s tri-district championship, with a narrow tri-district semifinal triumph over the Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Lummi (18-2) entered the contest having lost just once on the season but was held to just 14-of-83 shooting on the night.

Alisha Kallappa scored seven of her team-high 10 points in the fourth quarter for the Red Devils. Kelli Shuffelen sealed the game with two free throws with 1 second to play in the game.

Forks 38, White Salmon 26

CASTLE ROCK — Forks (13-8) stayed alive after pushing past a stubborn White Salmon team in the fourth quarter.

The Spartans drew 6-foot-1 Bruins post Lacy Kruz away from the basket and attacked the rim in the second half to create scoring opportunities.

“Whoever Kruz guarded we set up at the top of the post and then tried to take it inside,” Forks coach Scott Justus said.

Forks (13-8) also held Kruz to nine points, nine below her season average.

Paige Kennedy scored all 10 of her points in the second half and Gwen Gillett led all scorers with 14 points and five steals for Forks.

The Spartans open Southwest Washington District Four play against Toledo (16-4) at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Black Hills High School in Tumwater.
