The girls’ basketball team finished up its league schedule last week with two important games. The Falcons hosted Knappa for its final home game of the year and honored its senior players. The girls started slow, scoring just one point in the first quarter. They put together a little offense in the second quarter and took a 11-9 lead into the locker room at halftime. Even though the Falcons didn’t play their best basketball, they came away with a 25-20 win. Jessica Irving lead the way with 13 points and Malia Masters poured in another 10 points. Malia 12 rebounds were also a big help to the win. The win kept Faith in second place with a 10-3 record.
The final regular season game of the year took Faith Bible to City Christian to play the fourth place team in the league. Again the girls didn’t come with their best game and found themselves down 10-9 at the half. The offense was off track and the Falcons struggled. In the third quarter, City Christian outscored the Falcons 12-2 to stretch their lead. The girls worked hard in the fourth to trim the lead, but came up short in losing 25-22. Malia scored 8 to pace the Falcons. The loss put the Falcons in third as Neah-Kah-Nie moved into the second slot. Vernonia at 14-0 won the league title.
The Falcons travel to Neah-Kah-Nie on Wednesday looking for a win to qualify for the state tournament. A win sends Faith Bible to state, while a loss will require another game for a chance to qualify for state.
