SEASIDE — The Seaside Lady Gulls pronounced themselves “state tournament-ready” Saturday night, following a decisive 57-33 win over Junction City in a Class 4A girls basketball Regional Play-in game.

Seaside must win one more game to officially qualify for the tournament, but the way the Gulls played Saturday, they’re looking far beyond just the final eight.

The Gulls (17-4 overall) earned the No. 9 seed to the Sweet 16, and will play at No. 8 seed Molalla (14-6) March 4.

Tied 7-7 in the opening minutes of Saturday’s game, Seaside took off on a 32-0 run for a 39-7 halftime lead, and the Gulls had all the points they would need to win the game.

Seaside was forcing turnovers at will in the first half (18), while Maddi Utti scored 19 of her game-high 23 over the first two quarters. Teammate Sydney Villegas finished with 17, as the two seniors combined to outscore the Tigers by themselves.
