ROCHESTER — Toledo trailed 11-5 after a quarter but outscored Ilwaco 13-2 in the second on the way to a 38-25 District win Thursday, Feb. 20.

Kal Schaplow scored 17 points for Toledo. Kylie Gray led Ilwaco with 11 points, and Erika Glenn added 10.

Toledo, the only team to beat Ilwaco in the regular season, entered Districts as the Central League champ and tournament favorite. But when Mossyrock, the fifth-place Central League team, upset Toledo in quarterfinals, Ilwaco’s path through District suddenly became quite perilous.

Ilwaco was set to face a highly formidable team in semifinals, with the loser to likely face Toledo.

When Ilwaco lost to both Wahkiakum and Toledo, that put them in a fifth-place game, where they would need to save their season against Rainier, the Central League third-place team.
