St. Mary's suffers second straight setback

St. Mary's was streaking one way.

Now the Crusaders are going the other direction in Southern Cascade League girls basketball.

Fifth-ranked St. Mary's suffered its second consecutive loss as Lakeview got 20 points from Keli Hall in a 39-36 SCL victory Tuesday in the Crusaders' gym.

Lakeview took over first place in league with an 8-1 record. The Crusaders dropped to 8-2 with only their fourth loss overall in 22 games.

"It was a very slow-paced game," said Crusaders assistant coach Jolyn Marshall. "We couldn't play our game at all. It wasn't pretty. We were coming off a huge loss to Chiloquin (Saturday), and it just carried over, unfortunately."

In a contest that was close throughout, the Honkers took a three-point lead after three quarters and traded baskets with the Crusaders to the end.

Hall, a play-making guard, did most of her scoring in the first three periods, then was content to dish off to Kinsey Seaton in the latter stages. Seaton scored 12 points.

"We could never stop them from scoring," said Marshall.

Nikki Steinsiek and Domonique Valdez each scored late baskets for the Crusaders to keep it close, but two free throws by Lakeview's Ashley Wiebelhaus in the final seconds sealed the outcome.

Valdez scored 10 to lead St. Mary's.
