Wasilla 47, Colony 43

Wasilla overcame poor shooting to win a Northern Lights Conference thriller against Colony 47-43 in Wasilla.

Wasilla hit just 12 of 46 shots from the field but made up for it at the free throw line, where the Warriors sank 22 of 29 shots. Alysha Devine hit all seven of her free throws en route to a game-high 14 points and Kyla Dinkle posted a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Bartlett 37, Chugiak 34

Olivia Calloway chipped in eight points for the Golden Bears, and Alistie Augilar led Chugiak with 10 points.

Bartlett coach Steve Stansbury said the real difference maker for the Golden Bears was senior Sharia Holley, who pulled in a career-high five rebounds to go with five steals and two points.

"That's her best game by far," Stansbury said.
