Mountaineers blow out Forks


The Rainier girls basketball team had no trouble with Forks in a non-league contest Saturday, smashing the Spartans 60-13.

The Mountaineers (2-0) led 15-5 after the first quarter, and then shut the Spartans out for the entire second to go into halftime up 30-5.

From there, Rainier dropped 21 more points in the third for good measure.

Brynn Beckman and Brooklynn Swenson shared the scoring lead — and matched Forks themselves — with 13 points; Beckman had five rebounds, four steals and three assists, and Swenson had four steals and four assists. Angelica Askey scored nine points and also had four steals.

Haleigh Hanson led the way on the glass with seven rebounds, and also had four assists.

As a team, the Mountaineers shot 50 percent from the field, while holding the Spartans to just 5-of-35 shooting.

Rainier is set for one more non-league contest before Central 2B League action begins, hosting 1B power Neah Bay on Tuesday.
