OROFINO — Grace Beardin scored 19 points and Sayq’is Greene added 14 to lead Orofino to its first win of the season, 56-34, in a nonleague girls’ basketball game Thursday with visiting Deary.

Greene scored nine of the Maniacs’ 11 first-quarter points, most of those coming off steals generated by Orofino’s heavy defensive press. Beardin found her stride in the third quarter to help stretch the lead. Peyton Merry came off the bench for seven rebounds and two points for the Maniacs (1-1).

For Deary (1-2), Emiley Proctor led the way with 13 points.

“We were really working on our defensive pressure,” Orofino coach Tessa Mullinix said. “We like to push the ball, so we had a lot of turnovers our first game. We really cut that down this time by being conscious of what we were doing. A lot of work to do still, but I’m just impressed with our showing in our second game.”

GRANGEVILLE — Three Grangeville players scored in double figures as the Bulldogs blitzed nonleague foe Kendrick for their first win of the season.

A 23-3 fourth quarter turned the contest into a runaway after Grangeville (1-1) “really got the hang of” implementing a trapping zone defense that forced numerous turnovers, according to coach Michelle Barger. The Bulldogs totaled 29 steals.

Vanderwall, Barger, Zoe Lutz and Talia Brown had six rebounds apiece.

“They really shared the ball well,” Michelle Barger said. “I thought the girls just did a good job. They played hard.”
