In the first of three (and possibly four, and maybe even five) meetings, the Clatskanie Tigers scored a big win over Warrenton, 67-31, in a Coastal Range League girls basketball game Wednesday night in Clatskanie.
Too many turnovers for the Warriors, coupled with no Fernanda Alvarez and a cold night from the field for Warrenton, spelled a long night for the Warriors, who trailed 19-7 after one quarter.
It only got worse from there.
A breakaway basket for Clatskanie's Shelby Blodgett in the opening minute of the third period made it 34-15, and a three-point play by Olivia Sprague gave the Tigers an eventual 44-16 lead.
Blodgett's jump shot midway through the fourth led to Clatskanie's largest lead at 64-22.
The two teams will play two more times in the regular season, and will likely meet again in the Coastal Range League playoffs to decide the league's No. 1 seed.
Currently, Clatskanie is ranked No. 2 in the 3A coaches poll, while the Warriors are ranked fifth.
