SILETZ — The 1A-3 Mountain West League season can be a drag on teams, especially playing multiple games a week.
But for the Siletz Valley girls basketball team, not only did they face two tough games in a span of three days, they rallied and improved — dropping their league opener 53-42 against Triangle Lake on Tuesday, Jan. 7, then responding with a big win 38-25 over Alsea.
The Warriors might be 3-8 on the season, but the team showed big improvements from its first league game to the second.
Five players got on the score sheet for the Warriors.
Cameron Rilatos scored six points, Emily Simmons had two points, Syanne Kaiser had 11 points, including three long-range shots, Shay Robertson had eight and Bella Christensen finished the game with 11 points.
Siletz scored nine in the first quarter, 12 in the second, eight in the third and nine in the fourth to defeat Alsea 38-25.
