  • PHOENIX — It took an extra game, but Phoenix accomplished one of its goals Saturday when it beat Klamath Union in a Skyline Conference tiebreaker game to clinch the No. 2 seed in the league tournament.
    Baylee Toney had 11 points and 12 rebounds and Delanie Tally added six assists, five rebounds and four steals as the Pirates beat the Pelicans 35-28 at Phoenix High to break a tie for second place.
    Phoenix will face the Hidden Valley-Klamath Union winner next Friday for the right to play in the Skyline tournament championship game.
    "This is what we've been working for," Phoenix coach Randy Kirkland said. "Now, we've just gotta take care of business next Friday."
    The Pirates (15-7), who avenged a 45-37 loss at KU Tuesday, took a six-point halftime lead before extending the margin to 11 points heading into the fourth quarter.
    The Pelicans (9-11) climbed back to within four points with about three minutes to go but could get no closer, and Tally hit two clutch free throws inside the final minute to end the threat.
    Phoenix dominated the first three quarters before floundering late, hitting 3 of 11 free throws and committing nine turnovers in the final frame. The Pirates survived, however, thanks in part to Tally, who played all 32 minutes and committed just one turnover.
    Bailee Tally added seven points.
    Jackie Gardner and Hannah Armstrong scored six points apiece to pace the Pelicans, who were held to less than 30 points for the first time all season.
    "I was extremely pleased with our play through three quarters," Kirkland said. "I thought we played a great defensive game."
