GENESEE — You can forget that slip up from Wednesday night now.

Kaci Haeg scored 19 points and Madison Cordell had 17 points, six steals and six assists to lead St. Maries past the Grangeville Bulldogs 66-47 in game three of the best-of-3 2A District 1-2 championship series at Genesee High on Saturday, to advance to the state tournament for the second straight year.

St. Maries lost the first game 64-56 on Wednesday, then beat Grangeville 52-45 to forced the deciding game.

“We hit some shots in the third quarter and took a little bit of a lead,” St. Maries coach Jay Sines said. “Grangeville was trying to be more aggressive on defense, but we were able to run the fast break and get some easy baskets.”

St. Maries (15-6) opens at state against Cole Valley Christian (17-4) on Thursday at Kuna High at 7 p.m. PST.

Paige Lindsley scored 17 points for Grangeville, which finishes 11-11.
