Quilcene 53, Crescent 20
JOYCE — Freshman Allison Jones scored 21 points to lead the Rangers.
“This was another game where the entire varsity roster contributed to the win,” Quilcene coach Briana Weller said.
“The concept of team really describes this small squad's successes on the court thus far.
“They are doing a great job of seeing the open players and working the ball around on their offensive play sets.”
Jones also had five steals and three rebounds.
Sophomore Megan Weller continued her hot start to the season with 16 points, 6 rebounds, five assists and four steals.
In three games this season, Weller has scored 74 points for a 24.7 per-game average.
Jerrica Viloria had nine steals for Quilcene, and Sammy Rae and Katie Bailey grabbed eight and seven rebounds, respectively.
“A strong defensive effort really was the highlight of this game,” Weller said.
“They prevented the Loggers from ever settling in and running an offense — 24 steals also provided lots of opportunities for quick-hit conversions.”
Quilcene and Crescent return to action tonight. The Rangers host Rainier Christian and the Loggers travel to Sequim to play the Wolves JV team.
