Crusaders bounce back, down Clatskanie

NORTH BEND — The top-ranked St. Mary's girls basketball team came out a little flat, but finished with a surge on Friday.

Kylee Adderson poured in 22 points, Abby Steinsiek had 17 and Mackenzie Krieser added 11 as the Crusaders bounced back from a first-round loss to second-ranked Salem Academy by downing Clatskanie 64-51 in their Class 3A state consolation game at North Bend High.

St. Mary's trailed 13-7 with 3:08 remaining in the first quarter before finding its rhythm. The Crusaders (24-1) entered the second period with a one-point lead and used a 20-7 run to take control of the game by halftime.

"We were afraid we might come out a little flat, and we did," St. Mary's head coach Rick Jackson said. "But the girls did a good job rallying back."

Starters Domonique Valdez, Jamee Batten and Krieser had all fouled out with about five minutes remaining in the game. The Tigers drew within seven points in the fourth quarter, but Adderson and Steinsiek came up with several key buckets late to seal the victory.

St. Mary's will play eighth-ranked Coquille (26-3) at 9 a.m. today at Marshfield High, with the winner securing fourth place at the tournament.

"They can cause some serious matchup problems," Jackson said of the Red Devils.

The Crusaders suffered their first loss of the year when they fell to Salem Academy 45-42 in a quarterfinal contest on Thursday.

Steinsiek knocked down three 3-pointers and made three steals, and Krieser added six assists against Clatskanie. Batten had six points and seven rebounds.

Kaylee Taylor led the Tigers (18-11) with 22 points and seven rebounds.
