MOSCOW — The Moscow High girls' basketball team picked up its first win of the season on Senior Night, riding big games from Angela Lassen and Peyton Watson to down 4A Inland Empire League foe Lakeland of Rathdrum 33-29 on Wednesday evening.

“It shows that hard work pays off, and we just have to stick with what we’re doing,” Moscow coach Karlee Wilson said.

Lassen had a game-high 13 points, and Watson corralled a season-best 12 rebounds and added seven points for the Bears (1-10, 1-0), who effectively locked up Hawks leader Katy Ryan, a post. Watson was key in that.

“We made it hard for (Ryan) to post up, sending two to her in the key, then just forcing their guards to shoot from outside,” Wilson said.

Senior Megan Watson had seven points and five steals in the game, during which the Bears played a composed second half, and only committed six giveaways.

JV — Moscow def. Lakeland

Prairie 70, Lewiston JV 29

COTTONWOOD — Prairie’s Ciara Chaffee locked down the paint, recording 10 blocks and six steals to pace the Pirates in their downing of Lewiston’s JV squad in a nonleague game.

“Ciara’s arms are so long, they extend the length of the key,” Prairie coach Lori Mader said. “She’s skinny but lanky and long, and runs and leaps like a deer.”

Chaffee kicked in eight points, while Madison Shears (17 points), Delanie Lockett (12 points), Ellea Uhlenkott (11 points and 10 rebounds) and Kristin Wemhoff (10 points) also contributed double-digit outings. India Peery had six assists.

The Pirates (13-3) put up 31 points in the second quarter to set the edge during their fifth game in seven days (because of weather).

“We just went to a trapping defense and didn’t give them any chances to set up their offense,” Mader said. “Good defensive pressure and intensity. We got picks and quick baskets.”
