Taylor Drey scored 28 points and the visiting Thunder prevailed down the stretch to lock up the No. 2 seed to the Class 3A District 4 tournament.

A five-point burst midway through the fourth quarter put Mountain View (14-5, 7-2) up four. Fort Vancouver (9-10, 4-5) cut the margin to two points, but Akash Sanghera hit four important free throws to keep the Thunder in front.

The game did not impact Fort Vancouver’s playoff position — the Trappers are locked into playing in the third-fourth playoff game. But Fort coach Scott Thompson called it valuable experience for his team.

“That’s one of the best teams in our area and we took it down to the wire, so we are getting better,” Thompson said.
