TOLEDO 95, REEDSPORT 54: The visiting Boomers scored a combined 63 points in the middle two quarters to beat the host Brave in a Sunset Conference game.

Conner Marchant had 35 points and Mason McAlpine added 28 as the two Boomers combined for 10 3-pointers in the game (six by McAlpine). Reedsport did not hit a 3-pointer.

Javier Analco had 19 points and Tyler Thornton 13 for the Brave, who had the misfortune of playing the Boomers and Coquille, both ranked in the top three in the Class 2A power rankings, for their first two league games.

Reedsport will try to bounce back Monday at home against Bandon.

COQUILLE 58, MYRTLE POINT 43: The Red Devils overcame a feisty effort by the visiting Bobcats on Thursday to improve to 2-0 in league play.

Coquille scored the first 10 points of the game, but Myrtle Point came back to lead 21-20 in the second quarter.

“Credit Myrtle Point,” Coquille coach Willy Layton said, adding that the Bobcats played harder than the Red Devils and that Coquille too often got away from team offense with players trying to do everything individually.

Still, Coquille pulled back in front and outscored the Bobcats 19-10 in the third to essentially put the game out of reach.

Jeremy Kistner had 21 points, Cort McKinley 13 and Ean Smith 12 for the Red Devils. Jace Haagen hit two 3-pointers to start the game and finished with eight.

Tyler Beyer-Smith had 11 points, Gabe Swan nine and Carsen Bradford and Luke Nicholson eight each for Myrtle Point, which fell to 0-2 with losses to the Red Devils and Toledo heading into Monday’s home game against Gold Beach.
