Girls basketball: Indians' winning streak ends in Seaside
Seaside gets off to 15-0 lead, cruises
After a strong run of five wins to end the non-league schedule, Scappoose finally saw their stretch come to a short stop in a 47-19 loss on the coast in Seaside.
The Indians endured a dismal first quarter, trailing 15-0 after the first eight minutes and 16-3 at the halftime break. All three first-half points came via Sara Tinning, who hit the Tribe's only shot of the half midway through the second quarter.
Things finally picked up in the second half for the road team at least for the first few minutes of the third period. Bella Sykes scored out of the gate, followed by a free-throw from Tinning and four consecutive points from Alyssa Spang.
But the Seagulls, who lost in the semifinals of the 4A state tournament last season, continued their hot shooting with the final four points of the third quarter to erase the Indian rally and put the game on ice.
It was an uncharacteristically rough night for Spang, who had scored 22 points and finished with seven steals just a few evenings earlier. Against Seaside, though, Spang finished with six points and no steals to lead the Indians on the offensive end.
Freshman Lea Brodala had five points, while Tinning had four and Bella and Rosie Sykes each finished with two points.
Kaylie Kopra brought down a team-high six rebounds, but didn't attempt a shot or a free throw.
Scappoose returns home on Friday, but things will only get more difficult for the Indians with No. 4 Valley Catholic (12-3, 1-0 Cowapa) in town for a 7 p.m. tip.
