NASELLE - Responding to "home cooking" and playing a team that is in the process of rebuilding after losing some key players to graduation, the Naselle Comets roared to a 54-16 win over Northwest Christian in the Naselle gym Thursday, Dec. 4. The win gave the Comets a 1-0 Pacific League record and evened their season record at 1-1.

NHS, behind the scoring of Kelli Revis with 21 game points, jumped out to an 8-2 first quarter lead. The Comets then broke the game open with a 20-6 second quarter to lead 28-8 at the intermission.

Coach Bob Torppa said, "We took care of the ball a little better, but we still made way too many turnovers [25]. But our rebounding, where we had 40 rebounds, and our defense, with 16 steals, gave us a boost. Kelli (Revis) had a super game, especially since she was fighting the flu, with 15 rebounds, 2 blocked shots and a steal to go with her 21 points. We moved the ball better than we did in our first game as shown by the 8 assists we had."

The Comets, with their 20 point lead at the break, had a slower third period, but still outscored the Navs 9-3. Naselle then added a 17-5 fourth quarter for their 54-16 win.

After playing a league game with Oakville at home Tuesday night. NHS travels to Taholah this Thursday for another league game. They travel to powerful Warrenton next Monday for a non-league tilt.
