POTLATCH — A massive third quarter helped visiting Deary rally from an early deficit to edge nonleague rival Potlatch 50-44 for the Mustangs’ first win of the season in high school girls’ basketball play Tuesday.

“It came down to our defense,” Deary coach Kendra Keen said. “We started to pressure more. We were able to get some steals that gave us the spark to kind of get our offense going.”

The Mustangs (1-1) totaled 26 steals as a team, led by Makala Beyer with seven. Triniti Wood scored 13 points to top seven Deary scorers.

For Potlatch (0-1), Tayva McKinney and Jordan Reynolds reached double digits with 11 points apiece.

“They got us back on our heels pretty good, so I was impressed with our girls in terms of taking on the pressure in the second half,” Keen said.

Prairie 56, Orofino 26

COTTONWOOD — Prairie accumulated 28 steals, stretching its lead to double digits by the half in a runaway, season-opening defeat of nonleague foe Orofino.

“Turnovers were the key for us, forcing them to play our style of ball,” said Pirates coach Lori Mader, who coached the 200th victory of her 11-year career.

The Pirates took a little while to generate some energy, but were rolling in the second half, when they outscored the Maniacs 31-13.

For Prairie, Kristin Wemhoff totaled 20 points and seven steals, Madison Shears kicked in 17 points and six assists, Delanie Lockett added seven boards and Tara Schlader had five steals and seven rebounds, grinding underneath against 6-footers.

“I thought our kids played really good, up-tempo defense. They got quick picks and quick baskets,” Mader said. “They did a good job getting jacked up to play in a different environment ... Obviously, it’ll take some adjusting, but considering everything, we feel blessed to be on the floor.”
