BONNERS FERRY — The Lady Badgers are headed to the 3A state tournament for the first time since the 2012-13 season, when they won the consolation trophy.

After being upset by Kellogg in the first round of districts at North Idaho College, the Badgers recovered to beat Priest River 70-22 in the second round. The second-seeded Badgers then hosted the third-seeded Wildcats for the Intermountain League’s second spot at state. It was the third time in nine days that the Lady Badgers and Lady Wildcats played each other.

With a 46-36 victory, the Badgers (18-5) are among eight teams vying for Idaho’s 3A title, and will play the Panthers of Snake River (17-6) at Skyview High School in Nampa at 7 p.m. today, Feb. 15.

Bonners Ferry 70, Priest River 22: Miranda Wenk led the Badgers with 19 points and 10 rebounds as Bonners Ferry jumped out to a 22-3 first quarter lead en route to a blowout victory.

Kadi Bateman contributed 15 points and fellow senior guard Kassy Skeen added 10.

Bonners Ferry 46, Kellogg 36: Freshman Holly Ansley scored 15 points and the Badgers held off a late Kellogg rally for a 46-36 win in front of a packed gymnasium at Bonners Ferry High School.

Ansley made two free throws with 3 minutes left in the third quarter, giving the Badgers a 34-17 lead. Kellogg quickly rallied with a 15-2 run and cut the lead to 36-32 with five minutes remaining in the fourth. But that is as close as the Wildcats would get as the Badgers calmed down to finish the game on a 10-4 run to secure the victory and earn second place in districts to qualify for the state tournament.
