TOUCHET — A 21-8 second-quarter run lifted the Touchet High School girls basketball team out of an early hole, and helped boost the Indians to a 47-39 victory over Moses Lake Christian in non-league action here on Monday.
The second quarter started with Touchet trailing, 11-6, before the Indians turned the game around and mounted a 27-19 lead at halftime.
Touchet (5-11 record) held on to the end, despite LeAnn Kincaid fouling out, eighth-grader Breana Andrade finishing with a game-high 21 points.
“The girls played hard, played very good defense and was a total team win,” Indians coach Malissa McKeown said. “Breana Andrade recorded a double-double with 21 points, 10 rebounds. And Areli Orozco had nine points and four assists.”
Kali Kast led Moses Lake scorers with 11 points and four assists, as teammate McKenna Meise paced them on the boards with five rebounds, but Touchet forced 19 turnovers while committing only 13 of its own.
The Indians are back it tonight, hosting Mac-Hi for a non-league matchup starting at 6 p.m.
