Girls basketball: Aloha 46, Evergreen 36

Published:

 

Evergreen's rally from an early deficit was stunted by a lack of a shot clock in Oregon, leading to Evergreen's first loss of the season.

Aloha led 18-7 after the first quarter, but Evergreen got within three points in the final quarter.

"We had spurts in the third and fourth quarter," Evergreen coach Jay Foreman said. "But then we were playing defense for a minute and a half, two minutes because they stalled the ball without a shot clock.

"It's a lesson. We weren't prepared for that. And, of course, if we hadn't dug ourselves that hole early, it wouldn't have been an issue."

Moriah Doyle and Lexi Burney led Evergreen (6-1) with seven points each.
