The Friday Harbor girls basketball team notched its second straight win on the road, and its second straight by 20 points or more, with a 52-32 victory Dec. 8 at La Conner.

Maggie Andersen tossed in a game-high 19 points and fellow senior Kelsey Barnes added 14 as the Wolverines took a 10-point lead into the locker room at the half, and then outscored the Braves 31-21 after the break to claim the win. Junior Liz Taylor had nine points.

La Conner’s Priscilla Ponce-Venegas tallied 12 points to lead the Braves, who fell to 0-3.

Friday Harbor, which opened the season with a 67-43 win Dec. 4 at South Whidbey, improved to 2-0. The team also avenged its only loss against a league opponent in last year’s run to Northwest 1A/2B League title by besting the Braves.

The outcome of the Dec. 8 game — a non-league contest between Northwest 1A/2B League foes — will not affect the league record of either team. The Wolverines and Braves will square off twice, once at home and once on the road, later in the season in league competition.

The Wolverines face Coupeville in their home opener, Saturday, at Turnbull Gym; tip off is noon.
