SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Zoe Moser dominated the first half, Jenna Moser took over in the second and Colton captured its sixth straight Washington Class 1B girls championship with a 68-32 victory Tekoa-Oakesdale on Saturday night.

Zoe scored 19 of her game-high 26 points in the first half and Jenna scored 17 of her 22 points in the second as the Wildcats (26-0) earned their second title of the night. The Colton boys won the 1B crown earlier Saturday. Mattie Jo Johnson led the Nighthawks (22-5) with 14 points.

Tekoa-Oakesdale, losers of three previous games to Colton this season by margins of 49, 40 and 34 points, kept this one tight, at least through most of the first half. A 3-pointer by the Nighthawks’ Alexa Lindgren tied the score at 20-all with 2:50 left.

Zoe Moser’s six points keyed a 13-6 Colton run to close the first half. Jenna Moser took over from there, scoring six straight points to start a 29-0 burst that saw the Wildcats extend the lead to 62-26 early in the fourth quarter.

Savannah Chadwick added 11 points for Colton.

Earlier, Ashton Steggell scored 17 points as Pateros ran past Mount Vernon Christian 68-43 for third place. Katarina Wilson and Lorrie LeDoux each added 12 points for the Nannies, who pulled away after an early 23-3 run. Natalie Sakuma and Grace Kuipers scored 10 points apiece for the Crusaders. Pateros shot more than 51 percent from the floor on the way to a 38-21 halftime advantage.

Also, Jessica Boyer scored a tournament-record 42 points to lead Wilbur-Creston to a fourth-place finish. Boyer, whose 16 field goals on 29 attempts were also a tournament record, also had five assists and six rebounds for the Wildcats, who pulled away from a 16-all tie with a 29-8 second-quarter burst.

Cierra Moss scored 22 points and had 11 rebounds for Neah Bay, which committed 26 turnovers.
