Friday Scores: Spartans Overwhelm Highclimbers Late

High School Football
Sumner 34, Shelton 3

Shelton hung with Sumner for the first 35 minutes and found themselves down by just 11 points at the half and well into the third quarter. But Connor Wedington and Josh Riley proved to be too much for the Highclimbers and the Spartans pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 34-3 win at Highclimbers Stadium.

Wedington tallied 157 yards on the ground including rushing touchdowns of nine, 61 and eight yards and added an interception of Shelton quarterback Tyler Giraldes. Josh Riley broke the game open at the end of the third quarter with a 50 yard touchdown run that put the Spartans up 21-3. Kolby Nikolaisen finished off the game by ripping the ball out of the hands of a Highclimbers running back and waltzing into the end zone to put Sumner up 34-3.

Both Wedington and Nikolaisen had long touchdowns called back on penalties. Wedington went for a 53 yard scamper that didn’t count and Nikolaisen intercepted a pass and took it to the house minutes before getting the fumble recovery that did make it into the score book.

Willy Ruiz rushed for 141 yards for the Highclimbers while Tyler Giraldes threw for 82 yards. Cody Bragg’s 25 yard field goal in the first quarter were the only points that Shelton could muster. Kyle Kimball intercepted a pass from Sumner QB Luke Ross and Giraldes hit Skylar Ross for 30 yards on the next play. But penalties derailed the drive near the goal line before Bragg’s field goal cut the Sumner lead to four points at 7-3.

Shelton fell to 1-1 in their two non-conference games and will open 3A Narrows League play against Foss at Mount Tahoma Stadium next week. Sumner moved to 2-0 and will face Enumclaw at home on Friday night.

VIDEO: Stabler Forces OT, Saints Take 69-67 Win

Krista Stabler’s last second bank shot three pointer tied the game at 58 and Saint Martin’s went on to take a huge 69-67 overtime win over Northwest Nazarene on Thursday night at Marcus Pavilion.

The win moved the Saints to 7-10 in GNAC play and kept them tied for fifth place with Central Washington with the Wildcats coming to town on Saturday night. The top six teams make the GNAC playoffs in Billings. Alaska and Montana State-Billings sit one game behind Central and Saints with just one game left to play.

Megan Wiedeman scored 13 points, pulled down 19 rebounds and set the single season record for blocks with six tonight, giving her 48 this season. She passes Juanita Mebane, who set the record during the 1997-1998 season.

Elin Johansson and Brooke Paulson each scored 15 points and it was Johansson’s layup with one minute left in overtime that proved to be the game winner. Liz Mills recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The loss eliminated the Crusaders from playoff contention.

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.
