Jessica Denmon was the Wildcats' offense, scoring 19 points. No other OHHS players scored more than Nicole Mowbray's five.
The 'Cats led 15-14 midway through the second period. Snohomish went up by nine early in the third quarter before Oak Harbor narrowed the margin to three with six minutes left in the game.
