Marshfield’s girls improved to 2-0 on the basketball season by beating host Philomath 70-32 on Saturday night.

The Pirates had balanced scoring throughout the game and led by a comfortable margin while winning for the second straight night.

“This game allowed us to get quite a few girls on the floor for quality minutes and gave us a chance to get ample rest for all the girls at various times,” Marshfield coach Bruce Bryant said, adding that getting rest was important since Marshfield was playing on consecutive days.

“It was nice to have even scoring throughout the quarters, and with as much subbing as we did and as many rotations as we had, we kept pace.”

Tess Garrett had 15 points for Marshfield and Jazmin Chavez had 10. Hailey Browning and Mallory Heyer scored eight each and Alex Locati and McKayla Myrand had seven.

The Pirates led 14-7 through one quarter before scoring 20 and 19 the next two.

“We took more time in the second quarter and got the shots we needed and our shooting percentage went up,” Bryant said. “We were running the offense. Most of those points came out of executing the offense.”

Marshfield plays its home opener Tuesday when Cottage Grove comes to Coos Bay.

Natalie Vincent had 16 points and Kaiya Gourneau 11 for Pacific. Yoiwmana Pooyouma had 18 points and Na’Yeshia Henry 17 for Chemawa.

“It was a good game for us to work out some kinks and try some different lineups,” Pacific coach Ben Stallard said.

Devonte Beach had 24 points for Chemawa, which scored 23 points in the fourth quarter to make the final score closer than the game was.
