Sutherlin slips away from Siuslaw in final quarter

Siuslaw: 10  09  10  11 — 40

Sutherlin: 08  17  15  18  — 58


Dec. 15, 2018 — Though the Lady Vikings basketball team was able to get within 4 points in the third quarter at Sutherlin last Tuesday night, they weren’t able to keep the Lady Bulldogs on the leash.

Siuslaw senior Alyssa Richards drained 9 of her team-high 13 points in third period to close the Bulldogs’ lead to 33-29, but Sutherlin went on to score the last 7 points in the quarter, then the first 4 in the fourth quarter to quickly expand the Bulldogs’ lead to 16, 45-29.

Even with additional scoring from sophomore Gracie Freudenthal (9) junior Mia Collins (7), sophomore Brea Blankenship (5) and senior Madison reynolds (4), Sutherin held Siuslaw off by at least 12 points for the rest of the game.

The Lady Vikings (2-5) hosted Pleasant Hill last night (after press deadlines) and will host Stayton in another non-league match-up at home this Tuesday.

Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
