GIRLS’ BASKETBALL

OROFINO — In spite of a 13-point contribution from Emiley Proctor, the Deary High girls’ basketball team was unable to punch two size divisions above its weight Thursday night in a 56-34 nonleague defeat by Orofino.

Grace Beardin of Orofino led all scorers with 19 points, followed by Sayq’is Greene with 14, including nine of the Maniacs’ 11 in the first quarter. Deary (1-2) stepped up for its highest-scoring period of the game in the fourth, but was unable to cut the gap.

“We were really working on our defensive pressure,” said Orofino coach Tessa Mullinix, whose team improved to 1-1. “We like to push the ball, so we had a lot of turnovers our first game. We really cut that down this time by being conscious of what we were doing. A lot of work to do still, but I’m just impressed with our showing in our second game.”

GRANGEVILLE — Three Grangeville players made double-digit score contributions as the Bulldogs blitzed nonleague foe Kendrick for their first win of the season.

Camden Barger was the top Grangeville scorer with 16 points, while Macy Smith made four field goals and went 6-for-6 from the foul line for 14, and Bailey Vanderwall had 13 points and 11 steals.

Kendrick (1-1) was competitive and scored in double digits in each of the first three quarters, but a 23-3 fourth quarter turned the contest into a runaway. Grangeville (1-1) “really got the hang of” implementing a trapping zone defense that forced numerous turnovers, according to coach Michelle Barger. The Bulldogs totaled 29 steals as a team.

Rose Stewart scored a team-high nine points for Kendrick, and Erin Morgan had eight.

“They really shared the ball well,” Michelle Barger said. “I thought the girls just did a good job. They played hard.”
