The Foster girls basketball team beat Kennedy Catholic 69-68 in overtime Dec. 13.

“It was a huge win,” said Foster coach Datri Elliot. “The game went all the way to the final seconds.”

The Bulldogs (1-3 overall, 1-2 Seamount) went ahead by two points with 58 seconds left in regulation on two free throws from Sahara Hill, but Kennedy’s (2-2, 1-1) Miyah Williams nailed a shot at the buzzer to tie the game.

In overtime, Kennedy built a five-point lead before being called for a technical foul. Hill made three of four free throws, and Foster scored on the next possession to tie the game. Hill made two more free throws with 33 seconds remaining to give the Bulldogs a two-point lead. Williams made one free throw with 6.6 seconds left and Hill rebounded the second one to seal the win for Foster.

Since joining the Seamount three years ago, Foster was 0-6 against Kennedy, with the average margin of defeat 23.5 points. The Bulldogs have never lost by fewer than 14 points. The Lancers have a perennially strong program in both league play and on the state scene. They have been to state every year since 2001 and won the 3A state title in 2009.

Hill led all scorers with 30 points. Priscilla Donkor scored 15 and Bianca Benavides added 14 for Foster.



The Foster boys basketball team fell to Kennedy Catholic 82-56 Dec. 13 night.

The Bulldogs (3-2, 2-1) couldn’t find enough offense to stick with the Lancers and trailed by 10 after the first quarter.

Ablie Leigh led Foster with 13 points. Adem Suta added 10. Mitch Penner scored 28 for Kennedy.
