Girls basketball: Woodland 64, Ridgefield 43

By , Columbian Staff Writer

Woodland’s game plan centered around stopping Ridgefield’s two bigs, and yet it was the Beavers’ post players who rose to the occasion on Thursday night.

Nicole Guthrie scored a game-high 17 points and Audrey Adams added 12 points and 20 boards to lead the Beavers past Ridgefield 64-43 in a 2A girls district loser-out at Hockinson High School.
Woodland’s gameplan? It worked, too. They held the Spudders’ talented trio of Devi Dugan, Karli Oliver and Allie Andrew to two points each at halftime, while accruing a 14-point led. The teams split their two regular season matchups 1-1.
“We made their big three earn their shots,” Woodland coach Glen Flanagan said.
Woodland’s lead compounded in the third quarter, growing to 20 by the midway point.
“We had to come out with the same intensity,” Guthrie said. “We knew they had good shooters and they could sneak back.”
Guthrie had 13 of her 17 points in the first half.
The win keeps Woodland fighting for the third and final state tournament bid, while Ridgefield’s season comes to an end.

To do so, the Beavers must win two more games in two days, starting with Tumwater on Friday night in Longview (time and location to be determined).
