The girls game was much closer, though the undefeated Lady Seahawks pulled away at the end to win 55-39.

Sloane Woodard got into foul trouble, but still was able to pour in 23 points to lead Silverdale. Emily Harkleroad had 17 and Megan Lewis 13. Emily Skelton and Lindsay Sims scored 1 each.

Post player Maddie Wright had 18 points for Boyd-Buchanan and Marisa McCalla scored 10. Logan Highfield contributed 4, Chandler Hiland 3 and Maddie Balthrop and Maddie Abed 2 each.

The Lady Bucs led 13-12 at the end of the first quarter, but Silverdale went into the locker room up 28-23.

Woodard picked up her third foul in the second quarter and her fourth with three minutes left in the third quarter. She hit a 3-pointer early in the second half, then added a free throw and another three to move Silverdale ahead 35-27. The third quarter ended 38-30.
