Perry Imler of Colfax tugs for a rebound against Dakota Killian of LRS.

Colfax girls sustained two big defeats this week to finish up the first round of league action with a 2-3 record. The Bulldogs were crunched 64-31 Saturday in a home game with the LRS Broncos, and again 66-39 Tuesday at Spangle against a veteran Liberty team which is rolling on a 12-1 record.

Lancer senior Maisie Burnham powered up for 30 points in the Tuesday game which saw the hosts roar to a 32-18 lead at halftime.

Colfax was led by Kierstyn York who finished with 16 points. Coach Corey Baerlocher credited York with playing a strong inside game against the Lancers.

York and Perry Imler each pulled down six rebounds against the Liberty team which graduated three seniors off last year's team.

One the the big drawbacks for the Bulldogs in the Tuesday trip was turnovers.

Saturday on the home court, the Bulldogs kept pace with an experienced LRS club, but trailed by nine points at the half.

After the break, Colfax offense went off the track with just seven points in the third quarter and just two points in the last quarter.

Two three-pointers by Skylre Sakamoto-Howell in the third quarter accounted for most of the scoring in the second half.

Dakota Killian had a strong first half and had finished with a game high 14 for the Broncos. Asher Cai and Skylre Sakamoto-Howell lead the slim Colfax tally sheet with eight points each. Cai also had two three-pointers.

Colfax trailed by only two points, 12-14, after the first frame, but the Broncos began to move out in the second frame. They had a 21-14 lead with 5:04 left in the half and finished with the 31-22 lead at the break.

Colfax finished the first league lap with wins over Tekoa/Rosalia and Asotin.

Next round of action will be against the Timberwolves at Tekoa Friday. They will play Upper Columbia Academy Saturday.
