LONGVIEW — Naselle overcame a few scoring droughts to beat Three Rivers Christian 36-14 Thursday, Jan. 30.

Lauren Katyryniuk scored on a pass from Bella Colombo on the opening tip, but the Lady Comets struggled with turnovers, scoring just one point over the final 6:47 of the quarter to lead 5-4 at the quarter mark.

Jackie Steenerson broke the slump with a heavily-contested bank shot at the start of the second. Steenerson shortly added a put-back and a pair of steals. The Comets then went cold from the field, scoring only once in the final 6:45 of the half, but the Lady Eagles couldn’t do any damage either and trailed 12-4 at halftime.

Leading only 14-4 midway through the third quarter, the Comets got themselves going by repeatedly beating Three Rivers down-court. Naselle scored 17 points over a five-minute span starting with about 4:30 left in the third quarter for a commanding 31-7 lead.

Steenerson led Naselle with 10 points, Kaylin Shrives added nine and Katyryniuk added eight.
