The game got off to a slow start offensively for North Creek, with the team trailing 17-8 at the end of the first period and down 31-25 at intermission.
It was anyone’s ball game with the Knights up 49-48 with a minute left. But Mikah Hammerquist and Lyla Kahrimanovic fouled out and Kamiak went on to win it.
Kahrimanovic led all players with 24 points.
The loss drops North Creek to 4-5 overall. The Jaguars are 0–4 in conference play.
