Riley Stading scored 15 points as Woodland girls basketball team Ridgefield 53-39 on Monday, clinching no worse than a tie for second place in the Class 2A Greater St. Helens League

Addi Stading added 14 points, including three 3-pointers, as Woodland (16-3, 13-3) wrapped up its regular-season schedule.

The Beavers can claim second place outright if Mark Morris is upset by R.A. Long on Tuesday. But a Monarchs would get the No. 2 seed with a win by virtue of having swept the season series against Woodland.

Ridgefield (11-10, 9-7) finishes in a fourth-place tie with Washougal.

The Spudders won a coin flip after Monday’s game and will be the No. 4 seed to the district tournament. Ridgefield will face Evergreen Conference champion W.F. West in the first round on Friday.

Washougal, the No. 5 seed, will face Rochester on the road in a district play-in game Wednesday.
