HARRISON FLATS — Tommia Pakootas scored a team-high 14 points as the visiting Lakeside Knights pulled away late to beat the Kootenai Warriors 47-41 in a North Star League game Tuesday night.

“They outrebounded us and were able to get a lot of second-chance points,” Kootenai coach Doug Napierala said. “It was a really good game and we were able to tie it up with a little over five minutes to go, but they were able to use some ball control and pulled away late.”

Kaili Gentry had 21 points, six steals and six rebounds, Courtney Lamb 10 points and three steals and Madison Napierala four assists and four points for Kootenai (1-2, 0-1 NSL), which hosts Kendrick on Thursday.

Tara Allen scored 12 points for Lakeside (5-2, 2-0), which hosts Clark Fork on Thursday.
