The Storm came within two seconds of being shut out in the first quarter, and then recovered nicely for the win at the Barlow Trail Tournament in Gresham, Ore.

Skyview was down 10-2 after scoring its only first-quarter basket with two seconds remaining in the quarter.

The Storm then started applying defensive pressure with Reiley Henderson and Kalvin Johnson on the St. Helens guards, leading to transition opportunities.

Big plays by Jordan Berni and Keegan Liebelt put Skyview up by four in the fourth quarter.

Liebelt led Skyview in scoring with 21 points, and Berni had 10.

Skyview next plays the winner of Evergreen and Springfield at 2 p.m. Saturday.
