The Hood River Valley girls’ basketball team came out of its two most recent away games with a big high followed by a low.
On Friday night the team travelled to St. Mary’s and controlled the game throughout. A tough defense and aggressive offense kept the Blues off balance, while the Eagles where able to cut down on their turnovers to get a 67-53 win.
“We just did not let down throughout,” Coach Phil Hukari said. “We attacked the basket and held off all their charges.”
The Eagles were led by Meredith Danko’s 26 points – 15 of which came in the third quarter. Meagan Clark added 12 points to the effort while Brianne Rowley contributed 10 points.
However, everything that went right for the Eagles on Friday, went wrong on Monday against the Barlow Bruins.
The Eagles turned the ball over repeatedly in the face of a harrassing Bruin press and could not establish any offensive tempo.
Hukari credited the Eagles (4-13, 2-8 MHC) for playing strong defense, but said the lack of offensive tempo hurt them in the end.
Rowley led the Eagles with 10 points while Danko added 9 points and Clark 7 points.
