Bandon's girls basketball left no doubt on Tuesday night, the Tigers earning their 10th straight win as they beat host Reedsport 73-24 in a Sunset Conference game.
The Tigers improved to 14-1 on the season as they downed Reedsport (0-14).
It was all Tigers from the start as the team amassed a 39-5 lead midway through the second quarter — in part due to 21 first half Reedsport turnovers. This led to quick buckets as 11 of 12 Bandon players scored throughout the contest.
“It was cool to see just girls not afraid to step up,” Bandon head coach Jordan Sammons said. “This is the type of game where it is their opportunity to score. I’m getting open in spots in our offense where I can be successful and not being afraid to step up and take those shots. That was cool to see tonight.”
Ashley Strain led the Tigers with 16 points as Traylyn Arana scored 15. Sterling Williams, who hit a pair of 3-pointers, had 12 while Eduarda Reolon added 11.
Reedsport’s Cheyanne McCart recorded eight points while Ilene Glover had six.
