TURNER, Ore.– The Crosshill Christian Girls Basketball team faced some adversity with the C.S. Lewis Academy press and strong defense in Saturday evening’s 1A Casco League match-up in Turner. Something that raised some headaches for the Eagles squad as they were looking for their fourth league victory, something they achieved as they pulled away from the Watchmen 43-24 in the fourth quarter to start league play 4-1 and improve to 7-9 on the year. Finishing the game on a 15-0 run after C.S. Lewis brought the game back to within four early in the quarter.
“We did really good, normally we crack under pressure, but we stepped up to the competition and proved ourselves as a team. It was really good,” the Eagles Sierra Poush said. “This (game) was hard without our seniors, our top dogs, so watching our underclassmen really step up to the competition, it was really fun to watch them.I’m proud of my team, it was a big opportunity to watch everyone.”
Poush finished with 12 points for Crosshill Christian, Allie Rowzee led the Eagles with 13 points and Nicole Stucker contributed seven as Crosshill host North Clackamas Christian on Friday at 5:30pm. Angel Russ and Evelyn Erickdon each scored 11 points for the Watchmen in the defeat, who travels to play Perrydale on Tuesday.
