Bandon’s girls rolled into the final of the Oakland Holiday Tournament with a 38-29 win over Glide on Friday.
Traylyn Arana had 26 of Bandon’s points, but the rest of the Tigers largely struggled to score. Ashley Strain and Sterling Williams added five points each.
“We didn’t shoot well for multiple stretches today and Glide hit some tough shots,” Bandon coach Jordan Sammons said.
Fortunately for the Tigers, their defense was strong as Bandon held a fifth opponent under 30 points, while improving to 7-1.
“You’ve got to lock in defensively if you are struggling to score,” Sammons said.
“We have a lot to clean up, but we found a way to pull it out. I’m proud of the girls for that.”
Emily Michel led the Wildcats with 16 points.
Bandon faces host Oakland for the title Saturday.
“A few days off over Christmas is always rough, but we are excited to get back into the swing of things.”
