Marshfield’s girls basketball team followed up its title in the Les Schwab South Coast Holiday Basketball Tournament with a 63-46 win over visiting North Marion on Tuesday.
The Pirates jumped in front 18-10 through one quarter and pulled away in the second half, outscoring the Huskies 36-27.
“We ran the floor in transition in the first quarter as well as I have seen a high school girls team run transition,” Marshfield coach Bruce Bryant said. “We came out in the second half and got good looks in dribble penetration in transition. We made our layins and shot better from the free throw line.”
Hailey Browning had 21 points for Marshfiled and Tess Garrett added 12. Five teammates scored at least five points.
“I thought we had good ball movement at times on offense throughout the game that gave us good looks at the basket,” Bryant said.
Ally Umbenhower had 22 points for North Marion.
Coquille 52, Amity 40: The Red Devils shook off a slow start to beat the visiting Warriors after losing three of their previous four games — all against solid Class 4A clubs.
Amity led 27-26 at halftime, but Coquille limited the Warriors to a single basket in the third quarter cleaning up the offense after committing too many turnovers in the first quarter, coach Tim GeDeros said.
“We held them to nine points (for most of) the second half,” he said. “That’s a good thing.”
Morgan Baird had 15 points, Abbey Dieu 10, McKenna Wilson nine and Halle Layton eight for the Red Devils. GeDeros was concerned about struggles for his second rotation, when the starters rested, though.
“You can’t have that letdown,” he said, though he added he was pleased with the play of Haley Van Pelt off the bench.
Keeley Graham led Amity with 13 points.
Seaside 41, North Bend 26: The Bulldogs fell on the road, hurt by low-scoring first and fourth quarters (eight combined points) against the Seagulls.
North Bend was playing for the fifth time in six days, following the Marshfield tournament and a game at Banks on Monday.
“The girls were tired to say the least, but we didn’t score well at all,” North Bend coach Adam Decker said.
Megan Proett had seven points for the Bulldogs, who shot poorly and only got to the line three times (missing all three attempts).
Jetta Ideue led Seaside with 15 points.
Eagle Point 49, Gold Beach 40: Eagle Point topped the host Panthers, dropping Gold Beach to 4-2 on the season. The Eagles are 3-1.
Siuslaw 50, Reedsport 18: The Vikings topped the visiting Brave, dropping Reedsport to 2-7 on the year. Siuslaw also is 2-7 and has won two in a row.
Marshfield 54, North Marion 33: The Pirates pulled away from the Huskies in the second half as Grant Webster hit five 3-pointers and scored 22 points.
Marshfield led 23-16 at halftime and outscored the Huskies in each of the final two quarters.
“It was a very good bounce-back win after a disappointing effort against Coquille,” Marshfield coach Doug Miles said, reflecting back to the Pirates’ loss to the Red Devils in the championship game of the Les Schwab South Coast Holiday Basketball Tournament on Saturday.
“Defensively, we were as good as we have been this year. Cory (Stover) was very dominant inside defensively and Webster had a very nice game defensively.”
Stover also scored 11 points for Marshfield. Trevor Ensign had eight for North Marion.
Seaside 71, North Bend 47: The Bulldogs kept the game close for a quarter before the defending state champions pulled away for the win.
Jake Simmons had 17 points and Jayden Frank added 14 for North Bend. Chase Januik had 18 and Payton Westerholm 15 for the Seaside.
Siuslaw 50, Reedsport 45: The Vikings stormed back from a 28-13 halftime deficit to beat the visiting Brave, capitalizing on turnovers and Reedsport’s poor shooting from the foul line to pick up the victory.
Kyle King scored 22 points and Jake Hickson added 13 for Siuslaw.
Korde Parmenter had 17 for Reedsport, which finished just 8-for-18 from the foul line. The Brave jumped in front 21-9 in the first quarter when Parmenter hit three of his five 3-pointers and built on the lead in the second quarter, only to see Siuslaw rally.
Gold Beach 67, Eagle Point 61: The host Panthers beat the Eagles, topping their Class 5A opponents to improve to 4-2 on the season.
