Young helps spark Crater past Marist

EUGENE — Alix Young provided Crater a needed spark off the bench as the Comets rallied in the second half to pin a 47-44 loss on host Marist Friday in nonconference girls basketball.

Young's three-point play with 1:28 remaining in the game broke a 44-all tie and provided the margin of victory.

"Alix ran a play inside against their big kid and got fouled," Crater coach JT Thomas said about the decisive three-point play. "She gave us a terrific all-around game. She was the answer for us inside."

Young, a 5-foot-9 power forward, led the Comets with 10 points. The senior was 3-for-4 from the field, made all four free throws and pulled down four rebounds..

Crater trailed by 10 points at halftime but surged into a lead entering the final period by outscoring the Spartans 16-3 in the third quarter.

"We took care of the ball a lot better in the second half," said Thomas. "We ran our offense until we got good looks and we had a better defensive effort all the way around."

Crater (3-2) made four of its six 3-pointers after intermission and outrebounded Marist, 34-22.

Crater also received a boost with the return of senior off-guard Kasidy Cobb, who played in her first game of the season after coming off an eye injury. Cobb finished with nine points, four rebounds and three assists.

"We really played good man defense down the stretch," said Thomas. "Our kids stepped up and got this game late."
