GERVAIS, Ore.– New Coach, new scheme, no problem for the Gervais Girls Basketball program as they opened the Enrique Sandoval-era with a dominant 58-14 win over Yamhill-Carlton High School Wednesday night.
Leading as much as 31-6 at halftime as Olvia Boyd led the way with 16 points for the Cougars as they now turn their focus to Valley Catholic in a few days. Hoping to take the lessons from this game into Tuesday’s game against the Valiants.
“It was great. It was a confidence-booster to know that we can do it with a new coach and a new dynamic change. It was good to know that we can come out, play our game,” Boyd said. “(YC) gave us a good test to get our plays more set going into tougher games like Bandon and it’s a good solid win going into the next one.
“We can work on our plays a little bit more. We were expecting to come out in Man, so we weren’t prepared for zone plays and running zone offense against them.”
Tip-off against Valley Catholic will be at 6:30pm before the Cougars host Bandon next Friday at 6:30pm.
