Freshman Sidra Malik’s big game helped the Beavers win an elimination game at Chehalis.

Malik scored 26 points, 14 of them in a decisive second quarter. Woodland outscored Black Hills 25-2 during the second period.

Black Hills led 11-6 at the end of the first quarter of the 2A District 4 playoff tilt, but the tide changed quickly.

“We started handling their pressure better,” Woodland coach Glen Flanagan said. He noted that the result included transition layups that shifted momentum.

Malik also had four steals in the game. She made four baskets including a 3-pointer and was 5 for 5 from the foul line during the second quarter.

Taylor McCullough contributed 14 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for Woodland.

The Beavers will take on River Ridge at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday at Mark Morris High School in Longview.
