Feb. 13, 2019 — Following last Friday's matchup between defending state champion Marshfield and Siuslaw, the Pirates maintained their undefeated status in the Sky-Em (8-0) and improved to 20-1 overall with a definitive 60-24 win over the Lady Vikings, who remain winless in league (0-8) and 4-18 overall.
In Friday's game, sophomores Lindsey Long and Gracie Freudenthal led Siuslaw's offense, with ling scoring 6 points and Freudenthal nabbing 13 boards.
Unfortunately, both players fouled out late in the game as the Lady Pirates hammered the scoreboard with two players in double-digits.
Marshfield opened the game with 21-8 scoring run in the first quarter, then outscored the Viks 17-2 in the second period for a 38-10 lead by halftime.
In the third quarter, Marshfield struck for the first 12 of the half’s 14 points to secure a 50-12 lead to start the final period.
The win essentially secured the league title for Marshfield, which holds first place at 8-0 (as of Monday), followed by Marist (6-2), Cottage Grove (5-3), Junction City (4-4), Elmira (1-7) and Siuslaw.
Last night (after press deadlines), the Viks hosted Elmira during the final home game of the season — and last home game for seniors Madison Reynolds, Hailee Edgerly, Alyssa Richards and Lillian Wenham.
Thursday, the Viks will wrap up the season on the road at Junction City, in a game originally scheduled to be played on Friday.
Tip-off for Thursday’s game is set for 5:45 p.m., followed by the boys' game at 7:15 p.m.
