Thursday’s Girls Basketball: Rochester Edges Tenino in Rivalry Match

ROCHESTER — Lexi Sederberg recorded 18 points to lead Rochester to a 43-31 win over I-5 rival Tenino here in a nonleague girls basketball game here on Thursday.

Tenino’s Kaylee Schow had a team-high 10 points and nine rebounds. Paige Winter added 11 points, all in the second half after recording two fouls in the first 51 seconds.

“We persevered, we played the entire first half without her. Our kids, anytime your leading scorer goes out, some kids tend to fold up shop,” Rochester coach A.J. Easley said. “Elkins stepped up, all 8 points in the first half. Sederberg played great.”

The Warriors, he added, simply persevered until Winter returned to the court.

Rochester led 9-8 after the first quarter and pushed the lead to 20-16 at halftime. It was all Warriors in the second half, as they outscored the Beavers 23-15 to cruise to the win.

“A lot of easy buckets, (just us) not doing our job of being in the right spots. We learned a lot from this game and we’ll be a better team next time we see them again,” Tenino coach Brandi Thomas said. “I’m super proud of the girls. They work hard.”

Rochester (1-1) travels to Montesano on Wednesday for a nonleague game, while Tenino (0-1) hits the road to face King’s Way Christian on Friday.

Balanced Vikings Shut Down Onalaska

MOSSYROCK — The Vikings came out fired up in their home opener, holding Onalaska to 5 first-half points in a 51-25 nonleague girls hoops win.

Paige Moorcroft scored 13 points with eight rebounds, Ava Nelson scored 12 with 15 boards, and Mossyrock led 32-5 at the break.

“I think they were pretty excited for that first home game, and they wanted to set the tone for the season,” Mossyrock coach Autumn Moorcroft said. “They worked out the kinks after that Morton-White Pass game.”

The Vikings had beaten MWP, 41-33, on Tuesday.

Stephanie Fried added 12 points with six assists and eight steals, and the Vikings pulled down 44 rebounds in the win.

Adalee Sabin and Carmen Cleveland each scored 7 points for Onalaska.

Mossyrock (2-0) plays at Toledo on Wednesday. Onalaska (0-1) hosts Montesano on Saturday.

Elma Takes Down Toledo

TOLEDO — Toledo was unable to generate much offense against Elma, allowing the Eagles to win 50-30 in a nonleague girls basketball game here on Thursday.

Toledo was led by Kal Schaplow with 12 points, and Anna Tauscher added 10.

Elma led 12-7 after the first quarter and built the lead to 30-12 at halftime. Toledo played better in the second half, but Elma was too much for the Indians to overcome.

“We knew Elma, they’re long and athletic. They frustrated us in the first half. Obviously, we couldn’t keep them off the board either,” Toledo coach Brian Layton said. “We have to learn to play against teams that are bigger than us. Hopefully it’s a learning experience and we’ll get better.”

Toledo (1-1) hosts Mossyrock on Wednesday in the Central 2B League opener for the Indians.

Rockets Shoot Past Cardinals

WINLOCK — The Winlock defense played well, but the Cardinals’ trouble on offense allowed Castle Rock to earn a 40-27 win in a nonleague girls basketball game here on Thursday.

Cheleena Squibb led Winlock with a double-double, scoring 12 points with 12 rebounds. Neither team shot the ball well, with Castle Rock shooting 16 of 67 from the field while Winlock shot 9 of 37.

Castle Rock shot 16 of 67 from the field.

“Our goal was to make them take bad jump shots. We only let them shoot seven times in the paint,” Winlock coach Tori Nelson said. “I was really happy with defense. Our offense is the issue. We had a hard time handling the ball. We just struggled offensively.”

Winlock led 9-4 after the first quarter, but Castle Rock chipped away at the lead and led 15-14 at halftime. Castle Rock was able to generate some offense in the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 25-13 the rest of the way to earn the win.

Nelson commended the play of Squibb in recording a double-double.

“Squibb earned her double-double. They had a hard time guarding her. We had to sit in the second because of foul trouble, but she carried us, that’s for sure,” Nelson said.
Winlock (0-1) hosts Three Rivers Christian on Saturday at 1 p.m. in a nonleague game.
