Damascus makes quick work of top-10 Trinity
1A GIRLS BASKETBALL
DAMASCUS Knocking off a top-10 foe shouldn't look this easy, but that is exactly what the Damascus Christian girls did Friday night in running away from No. 7 Trinity Lutheran 86-38.
The Eagles applied a simple strategy.
Option one swipe a steal and get to the rim. Option two fire up a 3 and clean up the boards if it misses. Damascus rarely went a possession without putting points on the scoreboard.
The game was decided before the first quarter expired when the Eagles' Ashlynn Jones wrestled a rebound away from a crowd of red shirts and kicked the ball out to Hannah Forrar for a 3, followed by Forrar stepping through three defenders for a layup.
Damascus found itself up 21 points late in the first period, and Trinity was still looking for its first bucket.
The Eagles (25-0) return to action Saturday night in the finale of the Valley 10 playoffs hosted by Multnomah University.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
