The Kenai Central girls lost 36-28 to Fort Pierce (Florida) Central High Thursday afternoon, the third day of the 50th annual Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic tournament in Kodiak.

Once again, Kenai’s scoring threat came from sophomore Brooke Satathite, who posted 10 points. Rebecca Miller and Julieanne Wilson each chipped in six points. Maryanne Logsdon led Fort Pierce’s scoring with 15 points.

Fort Pierce, the lone out-of-state team competing at the three-day tournament, used a second-quarter surge to get by Kenai, outscoring the Kardinals 14-8 to take a 21-16 lead at halftime. Kenai cut the gap to 29-26 by the end of the third quarter, but Fort Pierce contained the Kards in the final quarter to just two points.

Thursday’s loss continued a rough week thus far for the Kenai girls, who are winless in three games at the tourney.

In boys action, Ninilchik rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Kodiak alumni team 59-56. The Wolverines trailed 35-21 at halftime, but outscored the old guard 38-21 in the second half to win the game.

Senior Austin White led the late charge with nine points in the fourth quarter and 16 in the second half, finishing with a game-high 24 points to lead Ninilchik. Teammate Dalton Geppert chipped in 11 points as well.

The win was the first for Ninilchik over the three-day tournament. The Wolverines are 3-3 overall this season, all in tournament play.

The Kenai girls will finish their week today with a 2 p.m. matchup with Northern Lights Conference opponent Kodiak, while the Ninilchik boys finish their tourney with an afternoon game against the host team Kodiak boys.
