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

Sand Point rolled past the host Kardinals, who were playing without a pair of starters due to a choir trip to Arizona.

Kailey Hamilton had 12 points for the Kards, while Bethany Morris had nine, Elizabeth Hanson had three, Erin Koziczkowski had two, Taylor Pierce had two, Amber Nash had two and Leah English had two.
