COLTON — Trailing by one with a minute remaining, Colton turned the ball over and had to resort to fouling, and visiting Colfax came through 50-46 in a seesaw nonleague season debut for both girls' basketball teams.

The Bulldogs led 16-7 through the first quarter, but the Wildcats struck back to lead 28-25 at the half. Colfax reasserted itself in the third and held on through the final frame.

Asher Cai of Colfax was the game’s top scorer with 18 points, while Maggie Meyer of Colton was just behind her at 16.

“It was a good opener,” said Colton coach Clark Vining. “I mean, Colfax is one of the teams favored in their league, so it was a good one for us.”

CRAIGMONT — Brayden Stapleton went 8-for-11 from 3-point range and racked up 36 points as he led visiting Deary to a season-opening Whitepine League Division II victory against Highland of Craigmont.

“(It was) a new coach, new system, so it took them a while to get rolling with it,” said first-year coach Gary Krumheuer. “We try to press and run fast breaks. We got better as the game progressed, and we do need to work on our defense a little bit — stopping the ball.”
