A combined 46 turnovers kept the offensive highlights to a minimum in a nonleague girls basketball matchup Thursday night between Redmond and Astoria, a first round game of the Vince Dulcich Memorial Tournament.
The Lady Fishermen won 56-46 despite missing 42 shots from the field, as the Panthers contributed 31 turnovers in the third girls' game of the day at the Brick House.
Action continues today and Saturday at Astoria High School in the 50th annual tournament.
Astoria faces Rainier at 5 p.m. today, then finishes the tournament Saturday vs. Centennial, also a 5 p.m. tipoff.
The Lady Fishermen struggled from the free throw line (10-for-21) in Thursday's game, while the Panthers were just 6-of-11.
Redmond also had 19 turnovers in the first half, but still led 24-22 at halftime, as Astoria missed its last seven free throw attempts of the second quarter.
The Fishermen trailed by as much as 33-28 in the third period, before Astoria's Halle Helmersen connected on two 3-pointers — back-to-back — that helped Astoria take a 35-33 lead into the final quarter.
Fisherman junior Hailey O'Brien led all scorers with 17 points, while Kajsa Jackson finished with 16, despite spending much of the night in foul trouble.
