Rockets Soar Past Vikings

CASTLE ROCK — Castle Rock held Mossyrock to single digits in the second and third quarter to earn a 57-44 win in a non-league girls basketball game here on Saturday.

Andee Nelson scored 20 points, shooting four of seven from beyond the arc to lead all scorers. Heather Edgar added nine points for the Vikings.

Mossyrock managed just five points in the third quarter to trail 46-28 going into the final frame. The Vikings outscored Castle Rock in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to earn the win.

“The first quarter was pretty good. We broke the press well, but couldn’t execute offensively,” Mossyrock coach Autumn Moorcroft said. “We gave up too many putbacks from lack of defense and not boxing out. We got frustrated in the third quarter having a difficult time scoring, and it was too late to bridge that gap in the fourth.”

Mossyrock (6-9, 4-2) resumes Central 2B League play on Tuesday, traveling to Cathlamet to face the Mules.
