Pirates Blast Chinooks In Rescheduled Contest


After widespread flooding in Lewis County forced a postponed game between the Adna girls basketball team and Kalama — originally scheduled on Friday in Adna — the teams played one day later in Kalama to fit the game into its schedules as quickly as possible. 

The extra day off proved more fruitful for the Pirates, who smashed the Chinooks, 79-24 to stay unbeaten in league play this season. 

“I thought our energy was good from players one through 10,” Pirates coach Chris Bannish said. “We are sharing the ball well of late and it’s nice to see unselfish basketball.”

The Pirates (7-4, 2-0 C2BL) rocketed out to a 28-13 first quarter lead, and didn’t allow more than four points in the next three quarters in a dominant performance. 

Four Adna players scored in double figures, led by Brooklyn Loose’s 16, Faith Wellander’s 15, Karlee Von Moos’ 16, and Kaylin Todd’s 13. 

The Pirates will look to keep that unbeaten league streak intact when they head to Onalaska on Tuesday.
