Morton-White Pass played the 2B No. 4 Adna girls basketball team tough after one quarter — even without its leading scorer in Natalia Armstrong — but a 33-8 run in the second quarter gave the Pirates the edge they needed to defeat the Timberwolves in Randle Thursday night, 81-41.
Gaby Guard again led the Pirates with 24 points, with Karlee VonMoos adding 18, Brooklyn Loose 14, and Danika Hallom chipping in 11 in a well-rounded offensive performance.
The T-Wolves got 16 points from Keira Miller, and 12 from McKenzee Mays, but couldn’t keep pace with a hot-shooting Adna squad.
The Pirates play a non-league contest against 1B No. 3 Mossyrock on Friday, while MWP takes on Onalaska in Morton on Monday.
