Grizz get first win over Knights since 2012-13; Nov. 10 girls basketball roundup

At Skyline, the Skyline High School girls basketball team began the 2017-18 season with a thriller in a 62-61 nonconference win over Hillcrest.

It is the Grizzlies’ first win over the Knights since the 2012-13 season, when the teams were both 5A District 5-6 opponents.

Skyline led 33-28 at halftime and Hillcrest cut it to 49-47 after three quarters. The game came down to a few possessions in the final minutes.

“We go to the line with 1.8 seconds to go and we get two free throws. We miss them both,” Hillcrest coach Alan Sargent said. “We lost by one instead of tying it up and winning it.”

Skyline coach Ty Keck said the Grizzlies got the rebound off Hillcrest’s second missed free throw to seal the win of an intense season opener for both teams.

“It was kinda back and forth,” Keck said. “We’d come down and hit our free throws and it seemed like they would come down and hit theirs.”

Maycee Stenquist had a game-high 23 points to lead four Hillcrest players in double-figure scoring while Ally Adamson added 15 for the Knights (0-1), who play Wednesday at Idaho Falls.

Skyline also had four players with double-figure scoring, led by Erin Jenkins (19 points) and Annalise Cheret (14 points). The Grizzlies (1-0) host Madison on Wednesday.

LIGHTHOUSE CHRISTIAN 28, WATERSPRINGS 25: At Twin Falls, Lighthouse Christian defeated Watersprings in a low-scoring season opener for both teams.

The Warriors led 10-2 after the first quarter and 14-9 at halftime. Watersprings coach John Yadon said the Warriors were able to build that lead because they shut down a much taller Lighthouse Christian team, then the Lions subbed in smaller players.

“They have three girls 6-foot or more,” Yadon said. “They had to go to a smaller lineup because early on, we were able to get to the hoop on them pretty good. We missed a ton of shots, especially inside.
We just haven’t had many practices.”

Abigail Yadon had 11 points while Taeya Dixon added six for Watersprings (0-1), which plays today at Twin Falls Christian.
