Four Mossyrock players scored in double digits and the Vikings put the Loggers away early in a 73-32, non-league victory at home on Monday.
“It was nice to finally show ourselves we’re capable of doing that,” Mossyrock coach Adam Deck said.
The Vikings were led offensively by Zack Munoz’ game-high 20 points, while Keegan Kolb added 14 and Warren Nelson knocked in 11.
Freshman Easton Kolb had a breakout game of 16 points, seven steals and six rebounds in an all-around performance. Deck called it Kolb’s best game of his high school career.
“Tonight was a good night for him,” Deck said. “He needed this game badly.”
But Deck said it was the Vikings’ defense that made the difference, holding the Loggers to single-digit scoring three quarters.
“We have to understand that defense wins games, and we did that tonight,” Deck said. “Overall, it was the first time we played the way we should play.”
The Vikings jumped on the Loggers early, starting the game on a 19-7 run before outscoring Ony 27-8 in the second quarter to take a commanding, 46-15 lead at the break. Deck did acknowledge the Loggers were without senior leader Mason Ulery.
The Loggers, who have now lost 10 straight, were led by Rylan McGraw and Case McGraw’s eight points each. Kole Raylor chipped in six.
