Carper’s Triple-Double, Trojans Defense Leads to Win Over Acorns


Star guard Charlie Carper scored 21 points, hauled in 16 rebounds, and took away 10 steals in the Pe Ell girls basketball team’s 40-17 win over Oakville Thursday night on the road. 

Carper guided the Trojans offense, while the rest of the team followed her example defensively, holding the Acorns to single-digit scoring in each quarter, including a scoreless third quarter. 

Peyton Zock added 15 rebounds for Pe Ell. 

“We played a really solid game defensively all the way around,” Trojans coach Dave Tuengal said.

The Trojans have a week off before battling Mossyrock at home on Thursday, while Oakville plays next Friday against Lake Quinault.
