This game down to a free throw shooting contest and the Trojans pulled out a tight win to advance to the District Championship and will face North Thurston on Saturday at Tacoma Community College at 4pm. Bonney Lake is scheuled to play Evergreen (Van) on Saturday for 3rd place but since both schools are also advancing to the State Tournament and the seeding committee will seed all schools on Sunday the GSHL schools from the Vancouver area have elected not to play this game which is really is nothing more than a scrimmage for both teams as the outcome will have no bearing on where they are seeded in the State Tournament.

For a complete rundown and scoring check out the ESN Postgame show below with a couple of video highlights.

Bonney Lake keeps pace


North Thurston 70, Evergreen (Van) 43
The undefeated and #3 RPI Rams had little trouble advanicng to the District Championship jumping out to a big 1st quarter lead and simply added to it each quarter. North Thurston will take on Auburn the #10 RPI team for the District Title on Saturday at TCC with a 4pm tip-off. Evergreen (Van) had already qualified for the State Tournament by reaching the Semi-Finals and so they will skip playing a meaningless 3rd place game on Saturday against Bonney Lake.

(Lacey, WA) The Gig Harbor Tides came out firing on Tuesday night in a loser out game at Timberline with Taylor Schwab scoring the m1st 6-points of the game giving the Tides an early 6-0 lead. Timberline would close the gap to a 4 point deficit at the end of 1, 14-10. Timberline then broke it openm with a combination of an incredible surge from Shayla Cordis and Brandi Stanford both came off the bench and combined for 19 2nd quarter points. Meantime, the Blazers smothering defense held the Tides to a single point in the 2nd 8 minutes of play and was a shut out until 16-seconds to play in the quarter. 

Timberline led 29-15 at the break and never allowed Gig Harbor to get closer than 8 points the rest of the way. Everytime the Tides started to make a move Timberline countered and it was usually Shayla Cordis or Stanford doing the damage. Stanford led the Blazers with 25, Shayla Cordis had 24. Sierra Cordis had just 2 points and Ailah Johnson didn’t score but those two were key on defense and dished several assists. Hannah Jackson chipped in a 3-ball for the final scoring.

Schwab led the Tides at halftime with 8 of their 15 points and finished with 10. It was Willow Bonnici, the freshman forward who got heated up in the lane scoring 18 of her 22 points in the 2nd half. Bonnici controlled the key and the Blazers had a hard time stopping her once the Tides could get the ball inside to her. 

Our Thorbekes MVP of the game was Brandi Stanford and our NW Home Team Takin’ it to the House Play of the Game went to Shayla Cordis’s back-to-back buckets for the lead in the 2nd quarter. Timberline advances in the Consolation bracket and will next face Peninsula on Friday at Mt Tahoma with a 5pm tip-off. Winner goes to state loser will get one more chance in a loser out game on Saturday. Gig Harbor’s season came to an end.

Timberline: Brandi Stanford 25, Shayla Cordis 24, Hannah Jackson 3, Sierra Cordis 2
Gig Harbor: Willow Bonicci 22, Taylor Schwab 10, Kalikyah Miller 4, Alex Ferrier 4, Ashlyn Peirce 2, Gracie Carey 1
