Kodiak is headed to the Northern Lights Conference Championship game for the second consecutive season.

The Bears rallied from a nine-point deficit to earn a 55-47 win over Wasilla in an NLC semifinal game Friday at Colony High School.

Top-seeded Kodiak improved to 23-0 and advanced to Saturday’s championship game at 3:30 p.m. against third-seeded Colony, a 50-42 winner over Soldotna in the other semifinal game. 

The Bears also punched their ticket to the 4A State Championships.

Kodiak trailed 33-24 at the 5:21 mark in the third quarter.

The Bears trimmed the deficit to 40-35 to begin the fourth.

Hannah Wandersee took over from there, scoring eight of her game-high 17 points in the first three minutes of the fourth that gave Kodiak a 43-40 lead.

The Bears never trailed after that, outscoring the Warriors 20-7 in the fourth.

Jerica Nelson added 13 points, seven steals and four assists. Megan Pyles scored eight points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Wandersee added eight rebounds.
