Lummi’s girls’ basketball team scored seven points in the first quarter, but was unable to replicate that success in the final three frames in a 33-17 loss to Tulalip Heritage on Friday, Jan. 9, at Tulalip Heritage.
Treena Humphreys led the Blackhawks with seven points.
“We just went flat in the second half,” Lummi coach Albert Toby said. “It was like there was a cover on the basket on the other end. We just could not get anything to fall. Everything (Tulalip) put up went in, credit to them and their coach for their good shooting in the second half.”
Janyha Ell scored four points and Lummi got two points for each of Halle Sturgeon, Nicki Revey and Seaneen Roberts.
“Janyha Ell, one of our freshmen, played well on the defensive end and played really well running the point in the first half,” Toby added. “She had like three steals and that’s where her four points came from, off of steals.”
Lummi looks to bounce back against Neah Bay at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 12, at home.
