Grant Carley added 12 points for SC. The Eagles (7-1) outscored Cascade Christian 12-8 in the fourth quarter and that was the difference in a physical game.

"We played a pretty solid game," SC coach Dennis McLain said. "They played good defense and that caused some issues for us, but when we executed I thought we played well.

"It was a great game before their home crowd, and a lot of fun."

The Eagles will play 5A Ashland at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Dayton is the other undefeated team, but the Eagles and Pirates won't play in the tournament because they already meet twice during the West Valley League season.
