Tenino 54, Raymond 47
The Seagulls sputtered offensively in the second half in a season-opening loss to Tenino Monday night in Raymond.
The Seagulls got off to a strong start, leading the Beavers 30-20 at halftime, but saw the lead dwindled as Raymond couldn’t get shots to fall late in the game.
Raymond head coach Derek Rask said foul trouble contributed to his team falling out of its rhythm.
“We got into foul trouble in the third quarter, which changed the pace of the game in favor of Tenino,” he said. “We simply had a poor second half, and they took advantage of our struggles on both ends of the floor.”
Yngwie Dowies led the way for Tenino’s comeback with a game-high 23 points.
Raymond’s Devine Souvannavanh helped keep Raymond in the game with eight rebounds and a team-leading 16 points.
The Seagulls will jump right into its league schedule with a game at Wilapa Valley at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
