  • BANDON — The St. Mary's girls basketball team got hot from outside and Bandon couldn't keep up in the third-place game of the Bandon Dunes Invitational Saturday.
    The Crusaders hit five 3-pointers in the first quarter, two apiece by Lillian Martin and Rose Alvarez, to jump out to a huge early lead then cruised the rest of the way for a 69-29 victory.
    Emily Alvarez finished with 16 points and Martin hit four treys on her way to 14 points for the Crusaders (7-2), who snapped a two-game losing streak and rebounded nicely from a 49-45 first-round loss to Del Norte on Friday.
    "It was probably one of our best team games all year," St. Mary's head coach Richard Vasey said. "We swung the ball around, made the extra pass to get good open shots and we were knocking them down."
    The Crusaders used a full-court press to rattle the Tigers early, seizing a 26-10 lead after one quarter and 44-23 halftime cushion. St. Mary's then ambushed Bandon 16-3 in the third to put the game away.
    Dakotah Rothfus added nine points and Rose Alvarez eight for the Crusaders, who were able to empty their bench in the second half.
    Raelyn Freitag led Bandon (2-5) with 10 points.
    Vasey credited Sam Weiland, Mary Beth Barnum and Viv Juncal with leading the Crusaders' defensive charge.
    "It was good to bounce back after a tough loss (Friday) night," Vasey said.
