Defense from the Camas Papermakers girls basketball team brought down the No. 1 seed in the 4A bi-district tournament on Wednesday.

After a slow start to the game, the Papermakers owned the second quarter with a 20-9 advantage and went on to beat Sumner 59-37 in the semifinals.

It was only 4-2 after the first four minutes, and Camas sent in Parker Mairs who scored five points right away and the Papermakers were on cruise control.

“Parker always brings it on the defensive end, but when she gets loose and starts knocking down 3’s, we become very hard to beat,” Camas coach Scott Thompson said. “We played every possession like our season was on the line.”

Mairs finished with 12 points and six rebounds. Addison Harris also had 12 points to go with nine rebounds, and Sophie Buzzard had a team-high 13 points. Kendall Mairs led with 13 rebounds.

Top seed Sumner (21-4) entered the game on an eight-game winning streak and was held to its lowest offensive output of the season.

No. 4 seed Camas (20-3) will face No. 2 Tahoma (21-2) for the bi-district title on Saturday at Curtis High School. Camas beat Tahoma 73-53 back on Jan. 16.

DECATUR 51, UNION 48 — The Titans season ended at Decatur in the loser-out game of the 4A bi-district tournament. Union finishes its season 16-7. No details were reported.

COLUMBIA-WHITE SALMON 47, KING’S WAY CHRISTIAN 39 — The Bruins got their first win this season over King’s Way by pulling away in the last two minutes of the 1A district tournament loser-out game.

Columbia (13-8) was 7 of 9 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter to help seal the win and advance to a winner-to-state game on Friday against Hoquiam at Castle Rock High School.

Sydney Aman and Maggie Bryan scored 14 points apiece to lead the Bruins.

King’s Way (12-9) was led in scoring by Ella Zimmerman’s 16 points plus four steals, and Bridget Quinn’s 14 points and six rebounds.

Kennady Broadbent and Izzy Hill each had 11 rebounds.

UNION 55, KENTRIDGE 47 — Yanni Fassilis scored a game-high 22 points to go with six blocked shots and seven steals as the Titans won the loser-out game on the road in the 4A bi-district tournament.

Kody Holcomb made two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter on his way to 13 points, and the Titans were 9 for 12 from the free-throw line in the fourth to seal the win.

Union (17-6) now has two chances to reach the regional round of state. The Titans will host Emerald Ridge on Friday in a winner-to-state game. If the Titans lose, they would play again on Saturday against Sumner or Tahoma for the final state spot.

SUMNER 61, BATTLE GROUND 55 — The Tigers season came to an end with the loss at Sumner in the 4A bi-district tournament. Battle Ground finishes its season with a 13-9 record. No details were reported.
