Josiah ‘Steph Curry’ Castillo hits 6 3’s, Scots To Fifth-Straight Victory Thursday

By Jeremy McDonald

ROSEBURG, Ore.–Roseburg have proved to be tough all season by slowing teams down.  And they did just so against a Scots offense that’s been scoring 90-plus in six of ten games entering Thursday’s cold game.

Unfortunately, or foruntaley depending on the side you are on, McKay still found a way by just scoring 72 points as they held a 25-point lead in the third quarter behind six three-pointers from Steph Curry himself in Josiah Castillo as the senior finished with 22 points as the Scots won their fifth-straight game and sit at 9-2.

But, a five-game winning streak is nice and all, however, it’s back to work as Forest Grove (8-3) look to uphend them at home on a end of a back-to-back as the Vikings face West Albany Friday before Saturday’s showdown at McKay.

“Last game/next game mentality,” Head Coach Dean Sanderson describes how his team is approaching this hot streak.  “We want to play better Saturday than we did today.

“Forest Grove is a huge challenge and a great team.  If you look at the records and scores from our common opponents of McMinnville and North Medford, they have performed better.  We need a great effort to find a way to win.”

The Vikings lost a heartbreaker in the Abby’s Holiday Tournament Championship game versus North Medford on December 29 by one and soundly defeated the Grizzlies 65-58 on December 10.

The Showcase Challenge between Forest Grove and the Scots will be at Saturday night at 7:15pm that follows the Girls Varsity Game.

McKay Scorers-  Castillo-22.  Beach-8.  Tavera-7.  Sampson-6.  Hull-6.  Daniels-6.  Garza-5. Joel-5.   Tovar-5.  Bangs-2.
