Naselle's State run ended as Kieron Anderson's 20 points on eight-of-twelve shooting led the Oakesdale Knighthawks to a 68-52 victory in a Friday afternoon game at the State tournament in Spokane. The Hawks shot 62.2 percent.

Naselle usually loves to get out and run, but Friday the 'Hawks were far more successful in creating an open-court game. That, combined with Anderson's work inside, generated easy baskets throughout the day. The Comets put up almost half their shot attempts from three-point range, where they were just 6 for 25.

The loss ended the season for the District IV champion Comets, who went 1-2 in Spokane. Oakesdale advanced to Saturday's fourth-place game.
