Hoops roundup: Soldotna, Kenai girls lose

The Chugiak basketball team handed Soldotna its first loss of the year, a 51-36 defeat at the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout at Dimond High School in Anchorage.

The Stars (14-1 overall) continue play at the tournament today at 8 p.m. against Point Hope.

Soldotna coach Kyle McFall texted that a rough stretch in the third quarter cost Soldotna the game.

The Stars went down 10-0, but cut it to 12-6 after a quarter and 27-22 at halftime. Then Chugiak went on a 21-3 run in the third quarter.

Chasity Selden-Horn poured in 28 points for Chugiak. For Soldotna, Morgan Bouschor had 14 points, while Ituau Tuisaula pitched in 11. McFall said Bouschor had some big 3-pointers.

He also said Mikayla Leadens and Autumn Fischer provided great defensive energy off the bench during an 11-0 run to end the third and start the fourth.

Sand Point girls 82, Kenai girls 32
