Girls basketball: Spang, Scappoose dominate Corbett

Indians blow out Cardinals in non-league finale


Scappoose got big nights from their big three and rolled to a 60-26 victory over Corbett in a non-league match up on Friday evening.

Sophomore Alyssa Spang had a monster night, even in comparison to her usual production. The point guard scored a team-high 22 points, grabbed six boards and poured in seven steals and five assists, also hitting eight of her 13 free throw attempts.

Things stayed relatively tight through the first quarter, with Corbett taking an early lead on a three pointer from and trailing 11-8 after the first period. The Indians pushed their lead to 11 by halftime at 26-15, and clamped down on defense in the third quarter, allowing only three points in the period for a 25-point lead heading to the fourth quarter.

Scappoose continued to torch the nets down the stretch, and outscored Corbett 17-8 in the final eight minutes to win their fifth game in succession and their sixth in the last seven games.

In addition to the stat-crazy evening from Spang, the Indians got 15 points from Sara Tinning and 10 points and seven rebounds from Kaylie Kopra. Hannah Galey had five points and a team-high eight rebounds, while Bella Sykes finished with four points and Kendall Bailey had two points.

Up next, Scappoose will kick off the league season with a trip to Seaside (10-4, 0-0 Cowapa) on Monday evening at 7 p.m.

Notes: The five-game streak is the longest since the Indians won eight consecutive league games in the 2006-07 season. Scappoose went on a similar run during preseason play, winning six games in a row. The 60 points are a season high, and mark the first instance in last two seasons in which Scappoose has put up at least 60 points on a team other than Yamhill-Carlton.
