JV II team's win streak halted

Girls look to rebound

   Madras High's junior varsity II girls basketball team dropped a pair of games, last week. But its losses at Wilsonville and at home against Valley Catholic came on the heels of a pair of wins the week before.
   After engulfing Estacada with a defense that surrendered just seven second-half points in a 27-24 Jan. 15 Tri-Valley League win, Madras added a 44-14 non-league win over Molalla only three days later.
   Lucinda Torrez' tirade of 13 points shot Madras to victory in its comeback over Estacada. Behind at halftime, Madras outscored the youngest squad of Rangers, 14-7, in the second half to claim its first of two straight wins. Chipping in with seven points for Madras was Carina Miller while Tatum Kalama added three, along with Charlene Moody. Kristina Roofener was the only other scorer, with a point for Madras, but Leeann Wolfe, Desrai Wells, Sierra Ferguson and Kaycee Carter all got into action as well.
   In the romp over Molalla it was Wolfe who led Madras scorers, with 15. Other scorers in that win were Kalama, with 13; Torrez, with eight; plus Moody and Roofener with four each. Ferguson and Miller both got to play as well.
