The Warrenton Warriors boys basketball team defeated the Astoria Fishermen Saturday night by 56-34.

The Fishermen had a commanding 17-11 lead in the first quarter, but couldn’t maintain it. They fell behind 26-19 by halftime.

“We doubled down on defense,” Warrenton Coach Nate McBride said on the difference between the two quarters. “We then played ball control on offense, forcing open shots.”

Dawson Little led the Warrior offense with 19 points. He was followed by Austin Little and Devin Jackson, both scoring 13 points in the game. Hordie Boden Boden added 7.

Dylan Junes was Astoria’s high scorer with 13, followed by Xander Marincovich with 11. The boys also had a game at Yamhil-Carlton on Tuesday and are home today, playing against Colton.

Girls team

The Warrenton girls also won last Saturday in their match-up with Woodburn High School at the Stayton High School Tournament.

“We were down by eight at half,” Coach Jake Mullins said. “And we were down by four at the end of the third, but we came around on offense, had better ball control, taking over in the fourth quarter, winning by 3 in the end.”

Kenzie Ramsey lead the Warriors with 19 points, 15 of them from three-pointers. Kasadie Dunaway and Annie Heyen each contributed 7 points.

The girls had a home game against Seaside on Wednesday and play Colton today.
