The Shorecrest boys basketball team overcame a 13-minute scoring drought (including all of the third quarter) to defeat the Tumwater T-Birds 47-41 and advance to the 2A State Championship Game Saturday afternoon at 3 in the Yakima Sun Dome.
Senior Tobyn Lawson snapped out of a small scoring slump by hitting three 3's in the first quarter to get the Scots close after trailing by nine early.
Shorecrest (19-8) will face the Clarkston Bantams (24-1).
The Scots have two '2nd At State' green banners hanging in their gym.
They'd love to add a white 'State Champions' one.
Tumwater 16 8 11 6 41
