KNAPPA — A 10-4 run by Neah-Kah-Nie in the second half helped the Pirates to a 32-19 win at Knappa in a Northwest League girls basketball game Tuesday.
Neither team scored in the opening six minutes of the game, and the Loggers were within 14-12 at halftime.
“Then Neah-Kah-Nie came out on a little hot streak to start the third quarter,” said Knappa coach Marie Green, “and that was it.”
Otherwise, she said, “we played a fantastic first half. We focused on (Neah-Kah-Nie senior) Maddie Lambert, who blew the doors off us the last time we played. But we played a box-and-one on her this time, and Aiko Miller did a fantastic job of defending her,” holding Lambert to just six points.
Knappa’s Madelynn Weaver led all scorers with 10 points, five rebounds and three steals.
Miller had eight boards and Vicki Ramvick collected seven rebounds for Knappa, which plays at Vernonia Thursday.
