SILETZ — After dumping Triangle Lake 64-33 in their league opener, the Siletz Warriors boys basketball team followed up with a second league victory 63-13 over Alsea, before dropping a non-conference game 77-21 to Damascus Christian over the weekend on Saturday, Jan. 11.

The Warriors (8-6) are finding their rhythm so far this league season, but to start out 2-0,  just shows the team’s preparation.

Twelve different Warriors got on the scoresheet against Alsea in a 50-point win.

Caleb Williams paced the team with 11 points, while teammates Carson Bushnell, Chase Rilatos and Preston Robinson each had eight points in the game.

Siletz might’ve scored 63 points on the night, it was the first quarter that set the team off for a big night.

The Warriors hit 11 shots in the first quarter, more than Alsea hit the entire game. In fact, Siletz almost made more baskets in the first quarter than Alsea’s entire point total.

Rilatos had four points, Bushnell had four, Santana Hutchinson had three, Williams had five and Christian Robinson had four.

Siletz players were knocking down their shots, but also strangling Alsea into submission.

The visitors found it rare to get a good shot off as Siletz head coach Will Worman had his boys fighting for every inch of hardwood.

Siletz went on to overwhelm the visitors to move to 2-0 on the 1A-3 Mountain West League season.

The Warriors now face two conference games on the road against Crow and Mohawk.
