Facing a foe who had beaten them by more than 20 points at their last meeting, Lake Roosevelt's Lady Raiders prevailed with a one-point lead in the final seconds of a district tournament game against Waterville Wednesday night in Wenatchee.

LR had the 17-15 edge at the half, but Waterville had gained the upper hand at the end of three, 25-23.

With 3.3 seconds left in the game, Joceyln Moore drew a foul under the basket with her LR team down by one.

Moore sunk both free throws for a thrilling Lady Raider win 37-36.

The victory pits them against against Okanogan in Saturday night's 6:15 slot at Eastmont High School in East Wenatchee as the District 5/6 2B Basketball Tournament continues.

If they win Saturday, they'll face the winner of the Brewster-Mabton game that will have been played at 2:45 p.m. That game for the championship is set for 8 p.m. Feb. 20.

If the Lady Raiders lose to Okanogan, they'll play on Feb. 18 against the winner of the Tonasket-Warden game for a chance at third or fourth place.

Lake Roosevelt's boys' team fell to Kittitas 75-54 Wednesday, placing them in pursuit of a third- or fourth-place district placing. They'll play Liberty Bell at Eastmont Junior High School Saturday at 4:30 p.m. in a loser-out contest.

If they win, they'll face, on Feb. 18 at 6:45, the loser of the Oroville-Brewster game scheduled for 1 p.m. Feb. 13.
