LAKE OSWEGO — Centennial guard Melissa Dailey put up a game-high 36 points, including a series of clutch free throws, to lead the Eagles to a 52-50 overtime win over Springfield in the semifinals of the Nike Interstate Shootout on Monday night.

Dailey sent the game to overtime by swishing a pair of foul shots with 3.4 seconds left. She would knock down three more from the stripe late in overtime to close out the win, which was locked down when the Millers misfired on a deep 3 at the buzzer.

With the win, Centennial advanced to face Hermiston, No. 2 at the 5A level, in the title game of the Les Schwab bracket at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lake Oswego High.

“Right now, we just want to play another game and keep getting better,” Stanek said. “This is something we'll look back and talk about at our end-of-the-season banquet.”
