Offense was hard to come by when the Toledo girls basketball team traveled to take on Onalaska on Thursday, but the Riverhawks found just enough in a 28-26 win in Central 2B League play.
The Riverhawks were up by three points with 16 seconds remaining, before fouling Ony guard Brooklyn Sandridge, sending the senior to the line. Sandridge calmly knocked down two freebies, and the Loggers managed to get the ball back with seven seconds left, but couldn’t get a last-second shot to fall.
No Riverhawk cracked double figures, but six scored led by Ryah Stanley’s nine points. Abbie Marcil and Stefani Arceo-Hanson also added six points apiece.
The Loggers were led by Brooklyn Sandridge’s 11 points and seven rebounds, and Ciera Berg scored just two points but hauled in 15 massive boards. Jen Lipsey added six points and six rebounds.
“I'm proud of the girls' effort tonight,” Ony coach Alana Olson said. “They came out with far more intensity than the last couple games. Cierra Berg worked extremely hard on the boards. She really did a nice job blocking out and fighting for position. Unfortunately we didn't come out with a win, but it was a good learning experience.”
Onalaska takes on Hoquiam on Saturday on the road while the Riverhawks return to play against Adna at home on Tuesday.
