Girls basketball: La Center 40, Elma 49

Published:

 

La Center couldn't hold in a game that was a nip and tuck affair for most of the night.

Andrea Griffee scored 15 points including three, three pointers late in the game but the late rally wasn't enough to knock off Elma.

La Center and Elma shot nearly identically from the field but Elma out shot them at the free-throw line, finishing with 22 more attempts.

Katie Whitten had six assists to go along with 13 points for La Center.

Ashley Denney led La Center with seven rebounds.

La Center will play again on Saturday against Hoquiam.
