SK girls cruise over Shelton, 57-29

South Kitsap kept its hopes alive for a share of the 4A Narrows League title as the Wolves dominated Shelton for a 57-29 win at home Monday night.

Ali Davis scored a team-high 14 points and Gabrielle Stewart added 10 for South's girls, who are 15-4 overall and tied with Central Kitsap for second in league at 11-2.

South opened a 26-11 halftime lead and was in control throughout Monday's game.

"We just wanted to get the 'W' and play a lot of people, and we accomplished our goal," Coach Mike Hulet said.

If the Wolves close out the regular season Wednesday night with a win at Mount Tahoma, they could finish as three-way co-champions if Central wins at home against first-place Bellarmine Prep, which is 12-1. If Bellarmine wins, South would be the second seed out of the Narrows League, but regardless of seeding the Wolves will host a district playoff game Feb. 15.

The Wolves had been undefeated in league before losing two straight games, the first a 56-51 home loss to Bellarmine on Jan. 27.

Then they were knocked out of a first-place tie last Wednesday when they lost 49-44 at Central after leading 25-18 at halftime over the Cougars, who South beat by 25 points at home earlier this season. Davis led South with 20 points.

South rebounded Friday with a 76-48 home win over Gig Harbor on Senior Night. Taylor Sunkel paced the Wolves with 22 points, while Miley Keanu had 14 and Jackie Steiger scored 10.
