KNAPPA — Both teams had slow starts, but the Astoria Lady Fishermen recovered better than Knappa Saturday night, on Day 2 of the Knappa Tip-Off Classic.

Astoria eventually won the nonleague girls basketball game, 44-24, as Alexis Wallace scored 11 points and Sam Hemsley tossed in eight to help the Lady Fish bounce back from a loss to Clatskanie the night before.

The Lady Fishermen were ahead after a low-scoring first quarter, 5-0, then extended their lead to 16-3 by halftime and 33-11 by the end of the third quarter.

Kaitlyn Landwehr scored 12 points to go with seven rebounds, four blocks and three steals for the Loggers. Ressa Inman added seven points and eight boards.
