EAST LANSING, Michigan -

St. Ignace will play for a girls' basketball state title yet again.

The Saints defeated Climax-Scotts 42-36 in Thursday's Class D semifinal in East Lansing to advance to their third state championship game in four years.

Scoring was tough to come by for both teams early. St. Ignace managed just seven points in the opening quarter before playing to a 16-16 stalemate at the half. The teams went back and forth for most of the second half until Kelley Wright's 3-pointer with 3:54 to play gave the Saints the lead for good. Wright finished with a double-double (18 points, 10 rebounds) while Abbey Ostman pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds for the Saints.

St. Ignace looks to end its season with a perfect 27-0 record on Saturday at 10 AM against Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes.
