Girls basketball: Sandy rolls past St. Helens in final three quarters
Pioneers out score St. Helens 66-28 after first quarter
For the final few minutes of the first quarter, St. Helens appeared to have captured some special magic in a bottle. They'd turned a 4-0 deficit into a lead, completing a 9-0 run on a trey from Tiera Ramsy in the closing moments of the quarter.
From that point, though, it was all Sandy. The Pioneers (4-2, 1-0 NWOC) kept things close until halftime, and blew out St. Helens (0-4, 0-1 NWOC) in the second and won going away at 70-37.
St. Helens was outscored 47-20 in the second half, and 66-28 in the final three quarters.
For the first time this season, the Lions were led in scoring by someone not wearing the No. 2. This time it was Leslie Curtiss, the 6-foot-2 sophomore post, with seven points. Annika Bingaman had six points, followed by five each from Ramsey and Rianne Tupper, who uncharacteristically took only one three pointer in the contest.
St. Helens returns home for their next contest, a NW Oregon Conference match up with Liberty (2-3, 1-0 NWOC) on Thursday evening at 7:15 p.m.
