For the second straight night, the Mossyrock girls basketball team came away with a big win, as the Vikings topped Tenino 57-20.
Renzy Marshall led the Vikings (2-3) with 18 points, and she also had a team-high seven rebounds.
“Renzy came out of the gate ready to play,” Mossyrock coach Autumn Moorcroft said.
Adyson Barrows and Abbie Lovan tallied 10 points each. Barrows hauled in five rebounds, and Lovan added seven steals, four rebounds and four assists.
As a team, the Vikings tallied 20 steals, and they have allowed just 24 points over their last two games. Mossyrock also had the advantage on the glass, where they tallied 14 offensive rebounds.
“We played well as a team and made improvements defensively from the last games,” Moorcroft said. “We are getting better and better, and everyone is continuing to work hard.”
Brianna Asay led the Beavers (0-4) with 10 points, and Kiyah Goodwin was next up with five.
While the Beavers had their share of positive plays throughout the game, their lack of ball security and issues on the boards were too much to overcome.
“It’s the same thing that’s hurt us in all three games,” Tenino coach Scott Ashmore said. “We’ll make three good plays, and then we’ll make three (bad) ones right after.”
Ashmore added that the Vikings’ ability to dribble-drive on offense was challenging for the Beaver defense, saying right now, they aren’t at a level where they can stop that consistently.
The Beavers are back in action tomorrow, when they’ll host Ilwaco, while the Vikings will head to Naselle on Monday.
