Playing in its fourth game in five days, Winlock ran out of steam in a 55-44 loss at home to 2B Pacific League’s Raymond on Friday.
“Proud of the girls,” Winlock coach Dracy McCoy said. “We ran out of gas, but we hung in and got better tonight.”
The Cardinals fell behind early as the Seagulls ripped off a 21-12 run to start the game. The Cardinals came firing back in the second quarter and forced Raymond star Kyra Gardner into foul trouble to cut the deficit to five at the half.
But Gardner steadied herself and helped the Seagulls outscore the Cardinals 25-19 in the second half to preserve the win. Gardner finished with a game-high 30 points to go with 10 rebounds and four assists.
Winlock was led by Addison Hall and Madison Vigre, who each finished with a double-double. Hall scored a team-high 21 points to go with 14 rebounds and six assists, while Vigre scored 12 points and hauled in 11 rebounds with five assists.
“Madison played great inside and Addison came to play tonight,” McCoy said.
The Cardinals shot 16 of 38 from the field, but hit just 2 of 8 3-pointers, while the Seagulls were 17 of 53 shooting and 4 of 10 from deep.
Winlock (7-6 overall) travels to Adna on Tuesday in a Central 2B League matchup.
