Saints (1-3 GNAC, 4-8 overall) 36 34 7 77

Jordyn Richardson’s three pointer at the buzzer sent Saint Martin’s and Alaska to overtime but the Saints ran out of gas and dropped an 85-77 decision to the Nanooks at Marcus Pavilion on Thursday night.

Alaska led by as many as 11 points in the second half and built a five point lead with just 41 seconds left to play and had the opportunity to salt the game away with 14 seconds left. But Jordan Wilson, who led all scorers with 24 points, missed the front end of a one-and-one allowing Angela Gelhar to cut the lead to three with seven seconds left. The Saints immediately fouled and the Nanooks again missed the front end free throw.

The Saints were granted a timeout with 2.6 seconds left and drew up a perfect play. Krista Stabler came around the corner and took the in-bounds and found Jordyn Richardson in the near corner. Richardson spotted up and buried the three to send the game to overtime.

But Alaska scored the first six points of the overtime session and never looked back and dropped the Saints to just 1-3 in the GNAC. Krista Stabler led the Saints with 16 points while Brooke Paulson and Liz Mills added 15 and 14 points respectively.

TUMWATER, Wash. – For the second game in a row, the Oly Town Artesians and Bellingham United went to the fourth quarter tied. And for the second game in a row, Bellingham came out on top, this time thanks to two Nick Cashmere goals in the final four minutes to lead the Hammers to a 9-8 win in front of a boisterous crowd at Olympia Indoor Soccer on Saturday night.

Cashmere’s two fourth quarter goals gave him a hat trick, one of four hat tricks on the night. Justin La Torre and Willie Spurr each scored three times for the Artesians while Capital High School grad Gabriele Zaccagnini collected his three goals in the first half against his hometown team.
