SCIO, Ore.– The Scio Girls Basketball team had their chances in their game with Rainier to take the lead down 34-33 after Holly Peterson’s basket with 6:10 left in the game.
The Loggers were hanging around throughout the game, overcoming the little things like turnovers and missed opportunities that kept the Columbians ahead in the non-conference game Wednesday evening. The squad slowly progressing and improving since their first game against Lowell back on Saturday.
Carrie Jones and Khloe Free led the team with 14 and 11 points respectively in Wednesday’s contest.
“We have a lot of young players and they all want to progress and I think that’s what’s been helping up with the adjustments that we made. Moving forward, I think that’s going to help us because they’re all willing to work,” Free said. “It was a little tough when they started to inch a little bit further from us, but we saw what we did wrong and situations where we needed to push a little harder like cleaning up a pass or something. So we saw what we need to inch closer to for next time to keep in mind for next time.”
Rainier started to pull away in the fourth quarter, building a nine-point lead late in the game before a late game three brought the Scio squad back down to 46-40 by the final buzzer
Just continuing to get those reps in points Free, either through in-game action or through practice will be crucial for Scio as they face Kennedy on Friday in Mount Angel and Santiam on Tuesday.
