GIRLS BASKETBALL: Delgado leads Phoenix past Ashland

ASHLAND — With arguably their best player getting injured in warmups, the Phoenix girls basketball was in need of a pick-me-up even before a second ticked off the clock Saturday afternoon.

Fortuantely for the Pirates, sophomore point guard Anabell Delgado was there to provide just that.

Delgado scored a game-high 17 points and recorded six steals to lead Phoenix to a 34-25 win over Class 5A Ashland at Mountain Avenue Gymnasium.

Phoenix (3-3) lost junior forward Morgan James — who had seven points and 10 rebounds in Friday’s loss to Sutherlin — to a leg injury right before the start of the game.

The Pirates, however, were able to jump out to a quick 12-3 lead after the first quarter.

Phoenix held Ashland (0-3) to a season-low point total and forced the Grizzlies into 20 turnovers, with Delgado and junior guard Kyla Potratz accounting for 10 of the 14 steals Phoenix had on the day.

Junior forward Kynna Nolan added nine points and eight rebounds for Phoenix, which snapped a short two-game losing skid with the win.

Ashland (0-3) got 12 points from senior Gabby Heiken, who hit two of the Grizzlies’ three 3-pointers.
