MONTESANO — The Spartans overcame a slow start before being undone by a fourth quarter in which they didn't make a field goal.

After scoring only five first-quarter points, Forks trailed 31-20 at halftime.

The Spartans fought their way back into the game with a solid third quarter, after which they trailed 35-33.

But in the last period, Forks only managed a pair of free throws.

“We just need to find that energy we had in the third quarter at the start of the game,” Spartans coach Rick Gooding said after Tuesday's game.

“The last three league games we just buried ourselves right off the get [with a bad first quarter].”

Colton Raben led Forks with 15 points. Leo Gonzales chipped in eight and Reis Lawson had six.

“We had a hard time getting the ballin the basket,” Gooding said.

“We actually got a lot of the shots we wanted, we just couldn't get them to fall.”

The Spartans (1-5 Evergreen 1A, 3-8 overall) play at Tenino on Friday.

Montesano's Kenny Roy scored a game-high 17 points, including shooting 7 for 8 at the free-throw line.
