South survives North, moves into state semis

Derrick Webb scored 15 of his game-high 27 points in the final four minutes, 10 seconds of Thursday night's state quarterfinal round to lead the South Kitsap Wolves past North Kitsap 48-41 and into Friday's semifinal round.

South, 26-1, will face Kentwood, 23-5, at 7 p.m. Friday with a spot in the Class 4A finale on the line. North, 18-10, will play Eisenhower, 24-4, at 2 p.m. in the consolation bracket.

Trailing 38-30 with 4:45 to play, Webb went on a scoring streak that kept the Wolves season alive. The senior guard hit a shot at the 4:10 mark to pull South within five at 38-33. He then nailed back-to-back three-pointers to put the Wolves up for good.

He added five more points in a 10 seconds span to give South a 46-38 advantage.

Webb has scored 49 points in the two state games so far. Junior Conner Gehring added 10 for South while Jacob Gonzales led North with 18.
