The Issaquah High School girls basketball team hoped it would get a shot at Auburn Riverside in this year’s 4A state tournament.
The Eagles got their wish.
Issaquah, 23-4, tangles with top-ranked Auburn Riverside, 27-0, at 7 p.m. Friday in the semifinals at the Tacoma Dome.
The Eagles reached the semifinals after flying by Lake Stevens 67-47 Thursday in the quarterfinals.
Mackenzie Schiltz hit six three-pointers and finished with a game-high 20 points to lead Issaquah. Her six trys were one shy of the tournament record.
Domi Mendezona scored 14 points and Maddey Pflaumer had 12 points for Issaquah.
The Eagles, who shot 47.1 percent, led from start to fnish.
Issaquah lost to Auburn Riverside last year in game for fourth and seventh place. The Eagles, who led through most of the game, have been eager for another shot at Auburn Riverside.
