Rematch with West Linn next Tuesday
After an abysmal night of shooting at Oregon City on Jan. 28 [a 43-28 loss], Clackamas High School's fourth-ranked girls basketball team got back on track last Friday, taking their frustrations out on Lakeridge, 62-41.
I played a lot of people, because I have not been happy with the offensive production of our bench, said Clackamas coach Todd Lane. I wanted to look at some people and see if we might need to make some changes.
Led by senior post Erica Pagano (13 points) and sophomore post Peyton Carroll (10 points), ten different Clackamas players put points on the scoreboard at Lakeridge.
After a sluggish start, the Cavaliers put the game away in the second quarter, when they outscored the Pacers 23-6.
We got inside a little, which is something we wanted to do, said Lane. And we got a few turnovers.
Led by Sydney Azorr (5 points) and Kaleah Walterman (5 points), seven different Clackamas players scored in the second period.
Led by Carroll (5 steals), the Cavaliers forced 29 turnovers in the game.
Pagano and Jordan Rasberry led Clackamas to a 43-31 domination of the backboards, each with seven rebounds.
Erin McDonald sparked the Cavalier offense with a team-high four assists.
Hope Daskalos paced the Pacers in scoring with 13 points. The 5-10 senior hit four 3-pointers.
Clackamas (14-4, 3-1) draws a bye this Friday and the Cavaliers host ninth-ranked West Linn (14-3, 3-1) in a key match-up at 6 p.m. next Tuesday.
The Cavaliers had to rally from behind to beat the Lions in a Jan. 17 game at West Linn.
