SPOKANE, Wash. —

Brandon Broersma had 12 points, 13 rebounds and a tournament-record 11 blocked shots to carry Sunnyside Christian past Neah Bay 44-36 on Saturday night for the Class 1B boys state title.

Alex Brouwer led the Knights (27-2) with 13 points. Abraham Venske scored 10 points for the Red Devils (19-4).

Sunnyside Christian saw an 18-point lead whittled to 38-36 with 2:10 left after Leyton Doherty buried a 3-pointer for Neah Bay. The Red Devils had a chance to tie, but Broersma blocked Ryan Moss' shot attempt with 50 seconds left. Broersma made four free throws to seal the win.

Sunnyside Christian raced ahead 15-4 and led 30-12 after a basket by Brouwer early in the third quarter. But Neah Bay closed the quarter on a 14-2 run to set up the close finish.

A day after making a tournament-record eight 3s, Tyler McCaulley scored two points and was held without a 3.

The game was a rematch of the final two years ago, won by Sunnyside Christian. The Knights have won five of the last seven 1B titles.
