ILWACO - The Lady Fishermen trailed by three points at the end of the first and second periods and were within three in the third period, but couldn't catch Seaside as the Lady Gulls held on for a 47-42 non-league victory in Ilwaco Tuesday. The loss snaps a six-game win streak for Ilwaco and gives Seaside an 11-5 record for the season.

The Lady Gulls scored three baskets in the first minute of the second half to expand their lead to 32-23, but Carley Kitzman passed to Vallori Crowston for a layup and then Aimee Banuet found Kitzman in the paint for another basket to cut the lead to five points. Alexa Wirkkala sank two foul shots later in the third stanza and Crowston fed her for a crossover layin to keep Ilwaco close at 37-33 with two minutes remaining in the period.
