WARRENTON — Warrenton’s patient, slow-it-down offense had the Warriors tied with Portland Adventist 8-8 after one quarter, before the Cougars pulled away for a 52-37 win Tuesday night, in a Lewis & Clark League boys basketball game at Warrenton.

A layup by Jacob Morrow gave the Warriors a 10-8 lead in the opening seconds of the second period, but Portland Adventist answered with two 3-pointers, followed by a steal and score from Julian Garcia, helping the Cougars build an 18-10 lead.

Baskets by Devin Jackson and Austin Little had Warrenton within 35-24 to close the third quarter, but more scores off turnovers and back-to-back 3-pointers pushed Portland Adventist’s lead to 45-27 midway through the fourth.

Warrenton takes to the road for its next two games, at Catlin Gabel Friday, and at Oregon Episcopal next Tuesday.
