EUGENE — Kayana Woodard sparked a run late in the first quarter and Crater kept the momentum throughout in a 53-34 Midwestern League girls basketball win over North Eugene Friday.

Woodard scored eight points in the latter stages of the opening period, then the Comets tallied the first eight points of the second to go up 22-9. They improved to 11-2, 2-1 in the MWL, while the Highlanders fell to 4-9 and 1-2.

“That momentum kept us going into the second quarter,” said Crater coach Scott Dippel. “Defensively, we were able to generate some turnovers and get out and run in transition.”

Early in the second, Mackenzie Ryerson made two 3-pointers and reserve post Averi Young added two baskets to extend the lead. The Comets won the second quarter, 16-3.

Sydney Gray had 10 points, nine rebounds and three assists for Crater, Woodard notched 10 points and five rebounds and Ryerson eight points and four assists.
