Caitlin Richardon scored 12 points and the Lewiston High girls’ basketball team recovered after squandering a 17-point lead Monday night to defeat Moscow 45-37 in a nonleague game that served as the Bengals’ regular-season finale.

Lewiston coach Steve Lear credited the late-game fortitude of seniors Richardson, Tai Bausch, Sammi Grant and Anika Grogan.

“The fourth quarter was controlled by the seniors, and they did a magnificent job,” he said.

The Bengals, who play a district-tournament game at 6 p.m. Friday at Lake City, committed a season-low nine turnovers and tallied 14 assists.

For Moscow, Peyton Watson has 12 points and 16 rebounds while Peyton Claus grabbed 10 board. The Bears collected a total of 21 offensive rebounds.

Moscow (1-13) will wrap up its regular season at Sandpoint on Saturday. The Bears can claim the second seed in the 4A District I-II tournament with a win, or will be the third seed with a loss. They will open the postseason against Lakeland of Rathdrum in a loser-out game Monday.
