ROCHESTER — Third-ranked Toutle Lake outscored Ilwaco 22-0 in the third quarter to pull away in a 62-35 victory over Ilwaco in District quarterfinals Saturday, Feb. 15.
Ilwaco made some tough shots to stay in the game for a while against the Central League champs. They trailed just 13-10 after a quarter, and Bubba Douglas’s long three got them within eight at 30-22 late in the first half. But Toutle was consistently generating layups while forcing Ilwaco into deep threes and long, contested two-pointers. Ultimately, Ilwaco could not survive this disparity.
Toutle scored the last basket of the first half, shut Ilwaco out in the third quarter, and had the first five points in the fourth, which added up to a 29-0 run that turned the game into a blowout.
