GIRLS BASKETBALL: Inside force sets tone for Crater

MILWAUKIE — Crater’s girls basketball team was able to establish the paint on both ends of the court thanks to the efforts of senior posts Averi Young and Kayana Woodard Saturday and that allowed the Comets to cruise past The Dalles 41-30 at Putnam High.

Young scored eight of her 13 points in the first quarter and blocked three shots, joining Woodard (four points) in altering several others and allowing the guards to better get out to shooters to boost Crater (2-0).

The Comets led 16-6 after one quarter and essentially held that advantage throughout.

“Especially in the first quarter,” said Crater head coach Scott Dippel, “our defense was really good. We were able to apply pressure and, while we didn’t necessarily generate turnovers, we rushed a lot of shots.”

McKenzie Hirsch contributed 10 points, nine rebounds and five steals and Kate Stidham had four rebounds, three points, three steals and two assists for the Comets.

THE DALLES (30): Guzman 5, Hoylman 5, Miller 9, Schatz 3, Codding 6, Decker 3, Iahlan 0. Totals: 11 4-8 30.
