The Wildcats outlasted Bainbridge 62-50 in boys basketball after a big second half Saturday at Paski Gymnasium.

West Seattle led 22-17 at the end of the first quarter, but Bainbridge pulled to within three points, 31-29, by halftime.

The Wildcats held the Spartans to single-digit scoring in the third, however, and just nine points. West Seattle poured it on in the fourth and outscored BHS 20-12 for the upset win.

Trent Schulte led Bainbridge with 16 points.

Joey Blacker and Oskar Dieterich chipped in nine points each for BHS. Others scoring for the Spartans were Riley Irish (six points), Lyle Terry (five), Blake Swanson (three) and Ben Beatie (two).

Bainbridge returns to Metro League action with a road game at Nathan Hale on Tuesday, Jan. 21.
