Two free throws by Kenzie Ramsey had Warrenton in front 11-9 late in the first quarter, but the rest of the night belonged to No. 1-ranked Clatskanie, which posted a 57-22 win on the Warriors' home floor Tuesday night.

The No. 2-ranked Tigers improved to 6-1 (17-2 overall) in the Coastal Range League girls basketball standings, tied with Willamina.

After Ramsey's free throws with 2:50 left in the first quarter, Clatskanie went on a 14-0 run to take a 23-11 lead.

A 3-pointer by Ramsey finally stopped the string, and Ramsey's layup early in the third quarter still had the Warriors within 26-16.

But too many turnovers, missed free throws and errant passes by the Warriors led to too many easy points for Clatskanie, which outscored Warrenton 45-11 after the first quarter.

The Warriors remain in a third place tie in the league standings at 2-5, and have one game remaining (Friday at Willamina) before the league playoffs begin.
