PORTLAND — After losing three of four games in mid-December, the Warrenton Lady Warriors have now won six in a row, all by 20 points or more, as they close in on first place in the Lewis & Clark League girls basketball standings.
Warrenton added two wins in two days over the weekend, with a 61-30 victory Friday at home over Oregon Episcopal, followed by a 62-42 win Saturday at Riverdale, which lost its seventh in a row.
“We’re just playing great team basketball,” said Warrenton coach Robert Hoepfl. “Riverdale has a couple good players, and we held their top scorer to just 13 points. It’s another good win. That’s six in a row by 20-plus points.”
Warrenton junior Fernanda Alvarez led all scorers with 18 points.
“She was a beast in the second half,” Hoepfl said. “She had three fouls in four minutes in the first half, but just came out in the second half and was unstoppable. She was doing everything a coach wants.”
Morgan Blodgett and Tyla Little tacked on 13 points apiece for the Warriors, with Blodgett also grabbing 10 rebounds.
In Friday’s win over OES, Alvarez had 16 points and Little had 13, as Warrenton led 18-3 after one quarter.
