The Elgin girls basketball team grabbed an early lead against Irrigon Friday, but the Lady Huskies couldn’t sustain it as the Knights went on to win 50-34 at Eastern Oregon University.

Things looked good for Elgin in the first quarter as it jumped out to a 6-0 lead. Irrigon didn’t find the bottom of the net until the 2:15 mark of the opening quarter. 

The Lady Huskies led 8-7 after one.

But the tide started to turn Irrigon’s way after that.

The Knights started the second quarter on an 8-0 run as Elgin’s offense struggled to get going. A Stormy Silver free throw with 4:32 left in the half was the Lady Huskies’ first point of the quarter.

Elgin cut the score to 15-12 with 3:38 to go before halftime, but Irrigon closed the half on a 7-2 run to lead 22-14.

The Lady Huskies made a brief run to start the third quarter, getting within four points at 24-20. But a 10-2 close stretched the Irrigon lead to 34-20 and the Knights never looked back.

Miah Slater led Elgin with 12 points, while Jordyn Anderson added nine. Katie Witherspoon scored six, Jessie Bottger put in four and Silver finished with three.

Elgin made just 12 of 26 free throws in the loss.

Ashli Roberts had a game-high 14 points for Irrigon, while Tessa McLaughlin scored 10. Karmen Garrett added eight.

Elgin is now 2-5 this season and 0-1 in the Blue Mountain Conference. 

Irrigon is 4-4 overall and 1-1 in the BMC after a 47-43 loss to Grant Union Saturday.

The Lady Huskies will play host to the Prospectors (1-4, 1-1) Friday at 6 p.m. before traveling to play Weston-McEwen (6-1, 1-1) Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
