ELMA — Kenzie Glenn’s 17 points led Naselle to a 31-24 victory over Mary M. Knight Saturday.

The Comets were missing early.

Glenn herself missed six of her first seven shots, getting a three-pointer to rattle in during that stretch. But she knocked down her second three near the end of the half, giving the Comets a 14-13 halftime lead.

Glenn came out of halftime in a catch-and-shoot rhythm, burying three jumpers to help Naselle to a 23-16 lead after three. She followed with a steal and layup early in the fourth period.

After Lady Owls star Kaylee Sowle cut Naselle’s lead to 29-24 with a fast-break layup, Taylor Gudmundsen triggered a Naselle break the other way, finding Hollie Haataia for an easy basket to restore the seven-point lead.

The Owls broke a Comet press to cut it back to five, but Naselle stuck with the press, getting three Owl travels late in the game.

Peyton Dalton stole a pass for Sowle and fired an outlet to Gudmundsen, who went to the line and hit a free throw.

The Owls could not come up with a basket down the stretch, and Naselle completed the seven-point win.

Sowle led the Owls with 11 points. Mary M. Knight fell to 3-1, while Naselle improved to 2-3.

Naselle visits the Washington School for the Deaf on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., and hosts Mary M. Knight for a rematch Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 5:30 p.m.
