Four players scored at least nine points as the Thunder downed the visiting Chieftains in a Class 3A Greater St. Helens League game.

Carly Holboke scored 17 points to lead Mountain View, which hustled to a 14-7 first quarter lead and led by 15 at halftime. Bailey Lindsley scored 10 points, and Bailey Gaspar and Emma DuChesne (three 3-pointers) had nine points apiece.

Mountain View (10-6, 4-2) did a good job on offense of working the ball inside-out, Thunder coach Mat Clark said.

"When we're doing that we get good shots, but it also helps our balance," Clark said of the teamwork on offense. "That's a good trend at the right time of year."

Kim Lowery scored 23 points for Columbia River (4-11, 1-5).

Columbia River coach Carl Click was pleased with his team's defensive work, especially around the basket.

"(The Thunder) just seemed to knock down outside shots when we were defending well inside," Click said.

This was a "Shoot for the Cure" fundraiser game, with players from both teams raising money for breast cancer research. The Thunder wore special pink uniforms for the event. Mountain View's Clark said he was told the effort raised more than $1,500.
